Tanya Roberts“The longtime partner is planning a celebration of her life, but before that he plans to honor her on the spot in Los Angeles, close and dear to her heart.
Lance O’Brien tells TMZ … the late model and actress will be cremated and he will scatter her ashes on the hills behind their home in Laurel Canyon, where she roamed regularly with her dogs.
Lance says Tanya will walk 4 miles with 2 favorite dogs 5 times a week and adds … they miss their mother a lot.
Tanya’s partner tells us that it has been an extremely difficult week, but he is trying to make plans with his family and friends for a memorial service or other way to honor her.
We broke the story … the actress, best known for “The Show of the 70’s” and “Charlie’s Angels” died Monday night, potentially from UTI which spread to the kidneys and liver.
News of her death had been strangely announced prematurely the day before, the result of what appeared to be a major communication error between Lance and Tanya’s representative after Lance visited her at the hospital on Sunday night.
The way he described it … she was does not respond to a fanbut he thought she had woken up when he arrived in her room.
Lance says the hospital staff told him it was just a reflex, and then her eyes closed and she was outside. He left her room, thinking she was dead … until the hospital called Monday morning to say she was still hanging.
