Tahnee Laine Brotherton died December 5, 2016. She was born July 13, 1987 in Anaheim, then moved to Big Bear Lake with her parents, Brent and Christi; her big sister, Tiffany and her older brother, Taylor. The Brotherton family moved to Temecula in 1989, and the family grew by three more siblings – Tanner, Roman and Tatiana.
As a child, Tahnee attended church activities with her family and went to Christian school. While living in Temecula, Tahnee attended school though the 11th grade until the family moved to Fallbrook in 2004, where Tahnee completed her senior year and graduated with the Fallbrook High School class of 2005.
After graduation, Tahnee worked at Amerigas in Temecula and resided there for some time before she returned to Fallbrook to raise her two children – Luke, now 6, and Skylar, now 5. Most recently, Tahnee was a server at the 127 Social House and Trupiano’s in Fallbrook.
Tahnee had an infectious smile and a vibrant love for life and people. She was very friendly and brightened up any room she entered. Tahnee had a fun and quirky personality.
