Tana Rose (Tallchief) Miville was born January 15, 1957 in Hillsboro, Oregon to George Eves and Vadyn Grace (Thomas) Tallchief. She grew up in Hillsboro before moving to Oklahoma in the mid 1980’s. She was proud of her Osage heritage from her father’s side of the family.

Her hobbies included knitting, drawing, crocheting and raising her “yorkies” and other furry pets. In her past time, she loved watching her favorite TV shows and hearing Elvis sing her favorite song “Love Me Tender”.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Miville; and parents, George and Vadyn Tallchief. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
