Tanitia Dawn Salas September 8, 1994 - March 28, 2024

Tanitia Dawn Salas, born on September 8th, 1994 was taken far too soon from all who loved and cared for her on the morning of Thursday March 28th 2024 at the young age of 29.

Tanitia who most knew as “Nisha” was a wild and free spirit who loved hard and cared deeply for all who crossed her path.  She was anything she wanted to be and whatever it was, she did it well.  She was a jokester, a bodyguard, a fashionista, a party planner (for young & old), a nail tech, an interior decorator and one time she was even an Alpaca sales advertiser.

Tanitia was also a loving wife to Ryan Salas, a daughter to Desiree and Richard Garcia and Dennis Smith Jr.  and a sister to Kiara Luna, Joann Luna, Sophia Luna, Frankie Luna and Bradie Rae Whinery, Maddie Whinery and Kai Smith.  Tanitia also had many Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins who played important roles in her lifetime.

Above all, Tanitia’s proudest role was being a Mother to her five beautiful children.  Adrias 10, Natalie 9, Ammar 6, Namir 5 and Aleena 3 were truly blessed and loved beyond words in the short time they had with their Mama.

She will truly be missed by all.  “FOREVER 29”.

There will be a funeral service Monday, April 8, 2024 at 11:00 am at Bowman Funeral Chapel.  A public viewing will be held before the service starting at 10:00 am.  Interment will follow at Meridian Cemetery.

    Tanitia. There simply aren’t any words to describe this sadness. This sorrow. I have missed you. I will always miss you. You are my little girl. My beautiful daughter… To say I am proud of the woman you became would be an understatement. I’m so blessed to have known you. Let alone be blessed enough to be your father. To call you daughter. I love you honey. I miss you so much. I will always love you so very much.
