Tehya Marie Lynn was born to Christina McDougall and Jeremy Clark on July 12, 2010 in Detroit Lakes. Tehya was a beautiful, loving child who will always be remembered for her heart-melting smile. Tehya had a way of making everyone feel welcome. Whether she knew you or not, she greeted everyone with a warm smile.
She also loved to cuddle with her family, and was often found crawling up to snuggle and give kisses. She had a joyful personality and loved to sing and to dance; especially to her Dad, Jeremy's singing and other pow-wow music. As soon as she heard the music start, her face would light up with a delightful smile and she instantly began to her bounce to the beat.
Her memory will forever be cherished in the hearts of her loving family.
