Eli Benneth Tanabe Obituary

Eli Benneth Tanabe, newborn son of Renee Tanabe and Gregg Rivera, went to Heaven to live with Jesus on January 21, 2017.

Eli's short life and the miracle of children will be celebrated with a child friendly service at the Gridley First Presbyterian Church on Saturday, January 28, 2017.

The service will be at 11 am with lunch following.

Even though Eli's spirit is with his Heavenly Father, the family will gather privately on Friday at the graveside to honor Eli's bodily temple.

Eli will be missed by his parents; Renee and Gregg, his "big brother" 2 year old Rylan Tanabe, his sisters Madisyn and Aubrey Rivera, his brother Jesse Rivera, his grandparents Dwayne and Jenine Tanabe, his great grandfather Ken Tanabe, his aunties Bethany Oakley and Tiffany Tanabe, his uncles Jacob Tanabe and Brandon Oakley, his great aunties Kandace Chinn, Marjorie Waters, Elaine Snow and Patti Poole.

Many cousins and second cousins are waiting to play with Eli when we all meet again someday in Heaven.

The parents and family wish to thank all those who helped, supported and prayed for them and for Eli.

Donations in honor of Eli can be made to Gridley Children's Hope Family Foster Agency or to the Gridley First Presbyterian Church.
