Ava was the sweetest girl you could ever meet! She was so thoughtful, kind, and caring. She always put everyone’s feelings above her own. Not a day went by that Ava didn’t have a smile on her face, regardless of how she felt. She loved her life, her friends, and most of all her family. We will never forget the kindness and love she gave to everyone she touched. We will never forget all the good times and wonderful memories with our sweet Ava. She was our Angel on earth and now in heaven. We will always love you and never forget you Ava Shea Tunheim! You are ALWAYS in our hearts!


Ava had a zest for life and loved to sing and dance! She also enjoyed cooking, playing basketball and volleyball, crafts, camping, side by siding, hunting, boating, and shopping! She was a people person and loved anything that involved people and her family. She also loved spending time with her Grandmas.


Ava will be forever in the hearts of her parents Nathan and Allison Tunheim, brothers; Christopher and Tobey, sister-in-law Iris, Grandparents; Lyle and Darlene Tunheim, Vicki Fisher, and Charles Odom. She will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, and cousins whom she loved dearly.
