Cheryl Ann Tangren-Madden, 1943-2010

“Outlaw Grandma”

On Nov. 8, 2010, Cheryl Ann Tangren-Madden passed away peacefully in Grand Junction, Colo. Cheryl was born in Moab, Utah, in 1943 to Gloria Eberle and Robert Tangren.

She lived most of her life in Moab, a place she loved more than any other. She owned and operated the Outlaw Saloon in Moab until she retired in 2004.

She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Jane Eberle (Nanny), and both parents. She is survived by her loving husband, James (Jim) Michael Madden; son, Michael Scott Reardon, of Vail, Colo.; daughter, Stacey Lynn Reardon, of Salt Lake City, Utah; grandchildren, Michael Jakob and Grace Ann Reardon, of Carbondale, Colo.; brother, Robert (Bobby) and Diane Tangren, of St. George and Moab, Utah; and sisters, Linda Bynum, of Moab, and Toni (Donald) Knowles, of Boulder, Colo.

Cheryl (Outlaw Grandma) was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. Throughout her life, she focused on caring for those less fortunate than herself. In retirement, she enjoyed painting, cooking, reading, and sharing creative projects with her dear grandchildren.

Her loving family and many friends will miss her and her delightful sense of humor. At her request, she will be interred near her Nanny Eberle in Grand Valley Cemetery with only immediate family present.
