Tiana was the third child born to Dan and Julie Friesen. She spent her childhood in Landmark MB, graduating there in 2019. Tiana became a part of the Stoney Brook Dance family at the age of three and travelled to numerous dance competitions and workshops with her dance teams. She embraced faith in Jesus at a young age, and exemplified godly character throughout her life-- yet wasn’t afraid to ask God and others tough questions.

4-H instructors instilled a passion for horse care and training, and her love of animals led her to a job at Waldenway. Most of her summers were spent at Valleyview Bible Camp, combining her love for Jesus and horses. After teaching dance for a year, she moved out to Vermilion, Alberta to attend Lakeland College for Equine Studies.

The summer of 2021 found her building more relationships at Camp Evergreen, and in fall she acquired Rowley as an unofficial therapy dog. Following college graduation in 2022, Tiana accepted a seasonal job in BC. Getting paid to ride her horse, Foxy, at Chilco Ranch, was her dream ranch job.

Her 4th province of residence was Saskatchewan, caring for bison at RJ Game Farm near Fairlight until this spring. While there, she picked up June Bug to train after work, and Skate to fill in any possible spare time and be Rowley’s playmate. Longing to employ the four animals she loved, Tiana was offered work down the road at Ramage Land and Cattle Co. Loving what she did, on August 23, 2023, Tiana saddled up Foxy and rode off to check the cattle on the ranch for the last time.

Tiana is survived by her parents Dan and Julie, siblings Aliyah (Brandon) and Barrett (Dylan), Nana Barb Dyck, and Grandpa Neil Friesen. She was predeceased by her Grandma Anita Friesen, Grandpa John Dyck, and Great-Grandparents.

There will be an Auf Wiedersehen (Until We Meet Again) held at the Millford Cemetery, Treesbank, Manitoba on Thursday, August 31, 2023 at 11:00 a.m. Respects may be paid beginning at 10:00 a.m.

A memorial fund in Tiana’s name is being set up for young dancers, cheques may be made payable to the Estate of Tiana Friesen.

Auf Wiedersehen Tia.
Until we meet again.
