Tange Lynn Auterson

September 22, 1964 - July 16, 2018

Tange Lynn Auterson began her life’s journey on 22 Sept 1964 in Orange, California.  She was raised in a loving, happy home with her brother, Tom.  She spent happy times with her grandparents Tom and Alice Auterson, her aunts and uncles and cousins in California.
Oregon was the next trip into her future at eight years of age.  There, she developed a love for the outdoors.  There were great times camping, collecting shells, rocks and fishing anywhere.
She married young and was blessed with two precious sons, Michael and Joshua Jones.  She had great sorrow when at the age of eight, Joshua Jones was in a tragic drowning accident.  She was able to go on in faith, as she had accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior and accepted his forgiveness.
The day came, after many occupations, she was employed with the UNISEARCH Corp.  She was so happy working for and with this great group of people.
Through all her years, she grew to be a loving, giving, joyful woman.  The giving person that she was, was her great desire to be an organ donor.  We are blessed to know that with her passing, she has given the gift of a healthier and better life to many others.
We are joyful in the assurance that she is now home at last in Heaven as of 16 July 2018.
In all things give thanks for this is the will of God in your life.  1st Thess. 5:18
Survivors are her beloved kitty, “Baby Girl”; mother, Janet L. Auterson, brother, Thomas M. Auterson; son, Michael W. Jones; grandson, Jackson Jones plus many relatives and friends.
She is preceded in death by her father, S. Jerry Auterson; grandparents, Holgar and Pearl Tange, and Tom and Alice Auterson.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to: Center for Hope and Safety (605 Center St NE, Salem, OR 97301) or, any “No Kill” animal shelter of your choice.
Thank you to Virgil T. Golden Funeral staff for all their compassion and help.
A celebration of life will be 4 Aug 2018 at West Salem Park (corner of Rosemont Ave NW and Plaza St.) in West Salem, beginning at 10:00am.  Please come in colorful attire and a joyful heart.

I will miss you very much.  You were a valuable and dependable co-worker that will be greatly missed.  You would be humbled at the outpouring of accolades and thoughts from so many of our clients and colleagues.  Their expressions of how much they will miss working with you are still coming in daily and are a testimony of the many people you have touched.  You became much more than a co-worker, you were my friend and sister in Christ.  For that I am thankful ...…and it is in that knowledge I celebrate :-)  Until we meet again...…..

It was an honor to know and work with Tange.  She made my job as a paralegal so much easier and always made me look good, even when I didn't know what I was doing.  Thanks Tange, you will be missed by our whole team at Davis Wright Tremaine.

What a joy it was to get to know you, and knowing that we will talk again when Jesus calls us home
