On Friday, Aug. 16, 2019, Tyana Brittany Montgomery of Knox, loving mother, daughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 27.
She was born on Feb. 25, 1992, in Salyersville, Ky. to Jeff Montgomery and Tina Montgomery (Cooper). She was a creative soul, who used her passion in her own start up business, Ty’s Dyes, making custom tie dye products and household decor. She was a bubbly, happy soul, a magnetic personality who knew how to see the good in others and was everyone’s best friend. She had the brightest soul, loved music and loved going to festivals. She was the life of every party and left a lasting impression on every person’s path she crossed with.
Tyana is preceded in death by her cousin Jackie Lewis “Newt” Cooper of Koontz Lake; her maternal grandparents, Sam and Lila Howard of Culver and Robert Cooper Sr., and paternal grandparents Dennis and Brenda Montgomery of Salyersville, Ky. She is survived by her boyfriend Zackery Trapp and their son Felix Trapp; her parents, Tina Montgomery of Knox, and Jeff Montgomery of Salersville, Ky.; her siblings Steven Metzger, Alonnia Hill, Joshua Montgomery, Eric Montgomery, Jessica Williams, Kenneth Metzger, Keshia Zapata, and Kenton Lovely; and innumerable aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
