Dianne Ellefsen Tanner, age 81, peacefully passed away on March 30, 2017 She was born July 14, 1935 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the daughter of Hans T Ellefsen and Ruth E Taylor. She married her sweetheart Reed Lowell Tanner on November 22, 1955, in the Salt Lake City LDS temple. Mom was a wonderful wife, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, neighbor and friend to all who knew her.

Mom was a devoted mother and homemaker living most of her life in South Salt Lake. In recent years she has lived with two of her sons in Farmington then Lehi.

Mom took great pride in her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and was only too happy to share their accomplishments with those she would visit with.

Mom had a tender spot for her doggies and grand-doggies and found comfort and unconditional love from them especially in her later years.

Mom loved beautiful flowers and took great pride in a yard full of a wide array of varieties. Each year she anxiously awaited the coming of spring. She baked delicious peach pies and worked hard to bake all the family favorites for the holidays.

She is survived by her three children Mark R. (Barbara) Susan Bryant (Russ), and Scott. She is also survived by six grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents and sister.

A graveside service will be held Monday, April 3, 3017 at 1pm at Elysian Burial Gardens, 1075 East 4580 South  SLC, UT. Friends may call on Sunday, April 2, 2017 from 6-8 pm at Cannon Mortuary, 2460 Bengal Blvd. (7600 S) SLC, UT.
