Tanya is a licensed Funeral Director/Embalmer with Christensen Salmon Generations Funeral Home. As funeral professionals, it is our priority to ask, listen, and learn about a loved one. Then we work with the family to create arrangements that honour the person’s unique personality and provide comfort for the grieving. As a funeral director, Tanya places high value in ensuring every family receives compassionate, gentle care throughout their difficult journey.
Tanya is born and raised in Lethbridge, Alberta. As a young adult, she moved to the Edmonton Area to begin pursuing her passion for the funeral industry and begin her apprenticeship. After graduating from Canadian College of Funeral Service in 2012, she continued her career in Edmonton, committing herself to personal and professional growth, including learning about many specific cultural needs the Edmonton Region demanded of the funeral industry.
In the end of 2019, Tanya took an opportunity to join the Caring Group team and moved to Lethbridge, a place that has always felt like home.
Large or small, a funeral home holds a prominent place in the community it serves, and supportive outreach into that community is an important aspect of a funeral director’s life. Due to this inspirational concept, Tanya began volunteering with various small community Fish and Game Associations in Alberta in 2014, holding positions such as Range and Archery chair, Secretary, and Vice President.
Tanya continues to pursue her passions with the Great Outdoors and local organizations while also seeking a balance in life, focusing on enjoying time with her husband Kevin Chrupka, and their infant daughter, Randi.
