Tawni was born August 10, 1982 to Dr. Anthony (Tony) D. Leming and Dana R. (Muncy) Leming in Tishomingo, Ok. She passed this life on February 26, 2021 at home surrounded by family and friends, in Dickson. She was a homeschool graduate and went on to marry the love of her life, Jerren Preston, on Decemberr 4, 2004. Her two children, Gus, and Gracie were her world and she enjoyed her time homeschooling and raising them while also pursuing her entrepreneurial interest.
Tawni's passion was spending time with her family at their cabin in the mountains of Eastern Oklahoma.
Evening rides on the ranger and watching sunsets refreshed her spirit. She also enjoyed watching kids play in the pool, sitting around campfires, camping at the lake and mostly laughing til she cried. She looked forward to multiple vacations every year with her family. Tawni loved animals- all animals. She appreciated cute shoes but wanted to be barefoot every day of her life. She never let a good song go to waste especially while driving country roads with the wind blowing through her hair. Her bubbly personality loved reading books….Just Kidding! She hated reading!!
Tawni was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, DeWayne Leming; paternal grandparents, Dave and Lena Riley; maternial grandparents, Otha Ray and Dorothy Muncy.
She is survived by her husband, Jerren, her son Gus, and daughter, Gracie all of the home; parents, Dr. Anthony (Tony) Leming and Dana Leming; sister, Eryn Luis and Heath, of Dickson and sister, Amanda Thomason and Ryan, both of Dickson, Ok; nieces and nephews, Kalee Sundeen, Lexi Preston, Albanee Leming, Harper Luis, Bayler Thomason and Corbin Thomason.
