Marla Faye Tye passed away on March 18, 2014 after a courageous fight with ovarian cancer. She was born December 11, 1955 to Arthur L. Tye and Thelma Hall Tye. She was the first of four daughters. She graduated from White Pine High School in 1973. Marla never married and had no children, but treated all kids as if they were her own.
Marla began her career with Mt. Wheeler Power in June 1974 and remained until her passing. Her fellow co-workers were her second family.
Marla is survived by her parents; sisters Brenda (Terry) Kahl of Billings, MT, Janene (Randy) Hirano of Pasco, WA, and Gaye (Travis) Terras of Spring Creek, NV; nieces Tracy (Andrew) Coburn and Terri (Jason) Lacher; Nephews Ryan Kahl and Cody Terras; Great niece Jade Lacher and soon to arrive Kyla Lacher.
Marla was a very caring and giving person, who loved the outdoors, and weekend rides over success and up Taylor Canyon. She was a light that will shine on in many hearts.
A memorial service was held Saturday, March 22, 2014.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to “Relay for Life”, c/o Christina Sawyer at Mt. Wheeler Power, or your favorite charity.
