Our precious Darla Jane (Swytch Blayde) Tennant, 21, left us to fly with the angels on May 24, 2022 in Casper, Wyoming after succumbing to her health issues.
Darla was born in Casper, Wyoming to Hayley and Bradford Tennant on April 11, 2001. She is the oldest of seven siblings. She attended Kelly Walsh High School and graduated in 2019. She worked as a cashier at Hat Six Travel Plaza. Darla enjoyed being at the lake, in the mountains, and at social events. She loved music, playing the guitar, writing songs and poetry, cooking, and food. She had the most beautiful smile and she loved to laugh and tell jokes. Her belly laugh was contagious to everyone around. Even though Darla had a lot to deal with, she was always smiling. She loved to raid her dad's closet and wear his clothes, which were often three or four sizes too big. She usually kept the clothes and wore them throughout her everyday life. She also loved to target shoot and ride ATVs with her dad and brothers. She liked boating and riding the tubes behind the boat. The faster, the better. She loved to go fast.
Darla gave her life to the Lord at a young age and was baptized. She wrote beautiful poetry and songs about heaven and about always holding Jesus’s hand.
Darla is survived by her loving parents Hayley and Bradford Tennant, her sister Jeanette and her five brothers, Ruben, Vincent, Walter, Silas, and Luke Tennant of Casper, Wyoming, as well as her paternal grandparents, Larry and Georgi Tennant, of Glenrock, Wyoming, maternal grandmother, Jane Larsen and her husband, Dwayne, of Casper, Wyoming, aunts and uncles and numerous cousins. She is preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Ivan Hasenauer.
