Tanya Hood Mason

January 4, 1959 — May 7, 2024

Marrero, LA

Tanya Hood Mason passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 7, 2024 at the age of 65. She was born on January 4, 1959 to the late Odie and Sue Hood. Tanya leaves behind her loving husband of 49 years, Billy Mason; two daughters, Susan Mason Diaz (Victor) and Shelli Mason; two sons, Scott Mason (Jessica) and Shane Mason (Jamie); eight grandchildren, Shae’ (Joseph), Seth, Sage, Loren Jr., Violet, Eric Jr., Egypt, and Xander; two great-grandchildren, Sullivan “Du-Man” and Jaeden “Jae Jae”; one sister, Denise Hood Spinks (Toby); two nieces, Jessica and Jordan, and one nephew, Jacob.

Tanya was a devoted stay-at-home wife and mother, who was such a generous soul and loved to spoil everyone. Watching her children and grandchildren play sports was her passion, spending much of her time at the ballpark. She was also a collector of many things such as Disney, Elvis, and especially salt & pepper shakers, to name a few. Most recently, she enjoyed spending time outdoors with her beloved turtles and tortoise.
