Tiffany was loved by all who met her, with her positive attitude and optimism brightening any room. She exemplified the strength of the human spirit.

Tiffany is survived by her father, Reidar Tynes and her brother Keven Tynes both of Seattle, Washington and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Tiffany was preceded in death by her mother, Linda Tynes of Seattle, Washington.
