Tabitha Washburn
2004 ~ 2016

Born August 27th 2004 Tabitha was a honeymoon baby, unexpected and miraculous at the same time. She had colic for nearly three months crying through the night several nights a week. Perhaps that is where she got her strong lung power from? She used those lungs to sing to her heart's content later in life.

Her mesmerizing blue eyes captivated us all.

For the first two years of her life she lived with her family in the basement of her grandparents home. She was surrounded by aunts, uncles, cousins, and so much family that she was not afraid of new people. She became very accepting of everyone quickly and could talk to just about anyone.

In second grade she finally met someone that she didn't get along with, a girl in her class. Talking one afternoon she told how they did not like each other and that it made it hard in class. Giving her confidence that she was amazing and that God loved her, we encouraged her to remember that God loved this other girl as well and that God might need someone to help this girl through hard times rather than fight. The next day Tabitha came home and told how she approached the girl and complimented her all day about anything she could think of. They were now friends, and stayed friends.

You likely never knew if you bothered Tabitha, she'd rather make a friend of you than get into a fight.

Tabitha's younger brother, William, was born with spina bifida when she was 2 years old. She took to him right away, love and hugs and kisses like he was her own little baby. That never changed, every one of her little siblings has been raised in part by Tabitha. She has been a god-send helping to keep this family strong through some really really hard times.

Tabitha is survived by her parents Nathan and Angeline Washburn. Her siblings: William (10), Rori (7), Lucy (4), Darcy (2), and Chase (10 months). Her Grandparents Allen & Ilene Washburn, Michael and Darcy Kennedy. Her Great Grandmothers Anna Adams, Virginia Kennedy. 25 Aunts, Uncles and their spouses. Dozens of cousins.

She is missed by countless friends, neighbors, and the communities that she touched everywhere she lived.

We know that she is in the arms of her savior and ancestors who love her and will care for her until we can once again be reunited.

Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, May 20, 2016 at the Highland 12th LDS Ward Chapel, 5853 West 10400 North, Highland, Utah. Family and friends may call on Thursday, May 19, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Warenski Funeral Home, 1776 North 900 East, American Fork, Utah, and again on Friday morning at the church from 9:30 to 10:30 am prior to services.
