LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — We are sad to announce the passing of Tanabelle Arleen Mulyca, or as Grandpa used to call her, “Boomer.”

Tana passed at the young age of 47 on Sept. 5, 2023, surrounded by loved ones after being diagnosed with stage four cancer in Lake County.

She was born in Yuba City, California, on Christmas Day in 1975 and she was raised in Philo, California, by her grandparents, Lilabelle and Arthur Knight Jr.

Tana (Tanabelle) is survived by her little doggies, (her kids), Cheyanne, Bubba and Smokey; mother, Alicia R. Knight and father, Bernard S. Mulyca; siblings, Victor Ruiz, Rolando Ruiz, Angelina Gamez, Mark Mulyca and Melissa Mulyca (Pettit), and (brother from another mother as Tana would say) Travaris Coleman; Uncle Brub and Auntie Ann; cousins, Art, Liz and Jake; all the Santa Rosa Family-Grandfather side, and Marysville Family-Grandmother side; Uncle Evert, Aunt Bernice, cousin, Anthony, Shawn and John John.

Tana’s pride and joy was her niece and nephews, her angel Cassie Girl, Baby Vic, Romeo and Lil Juju.

She loved to share her love of food, making homemade lasagna, spaghetti, tacos, cakes and pies. She could make any cheese cake at your request, we, the family would challenge her to make new cheesecakes, and she would be up for the challenge. She always looked forward to cooking for the ones she loved and getting us all together.

Tana had the heart to help others, she would help anyone that needed a place to stay, there are many of us that have lived with her once or twice. She loved to drive around with her dogs, be with family, she was the glue of the family, the closest thing to the grandparents, after they passed.

Celebration of life will be a private ceremony with close family members and friends. Tana, will be missed dearly …
