Tasche Thompson Murray Stone
1983 - 2009

Tasche Thompson Murray Stone, cherished wife, beloved daughter, devoted mother and treasured friend, passed away the evening of February 26, 2009 at age 25.

Tasche was born March 1, 1983 to Dianne Murray in Southeast Idaho, where she was raised. While attending BYU-Idaho and earning her associate's degree, Tasche met her future husband and best friend, Keola Stone.

Tasche and Keola were married and sealed for time and all eternity in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple on September 12, 2003. The two shared a passion for humor, family and each other.

Tasche's kind heart and vivacious personality made her a favorite at family gatherings; children were drawn to Tasche and were constantly seeking her comforting smile and open arms. Tasche and Keola started their family immediately by adopting their first four furry children; dogs Dobby and Winky, and cats Mary and Jane. Together they strived to create a life and home full of love and support.

Tasche pursued a career in nursing and completed the LPN program at Apollo College in the fall of 2008, while also preparing for the birth of their long awaited first two children. Tasche and Keola welcomed their twin sons, Ikaika and Makakoa in February 2009.

Tasche's compassion and concern for others were beyond measure and will be missed by those many lives she touched.

Tasche is survived by her devoted husband, Keola who cherished her in every way, her adored sons Ikaika and Makakoa, mother Dianne, 5 brothers and 5 sisters; father and mother in-law, Lui and Gwen Stone and many aunts, uncles and relatives.
