Tiffany Anne Schultz Porter

May 3, 1985 - February 23, 2009

Donor, Minnesota

Tiffany was an absolute joy from the moment she was born. She always had a smile on her face and an infectious laugh. She loved to swim and go shopping, especially to buy purses. She enjoyed watching the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Wild. She worked in health care and cared deeply for others.

Tiffany's smile and laughter could light up a room. She will always be our hero. She was truly unselfish until the day she died.

Tiffany was always a very giving person and had decided she wanted to be an organ donor and give the gift of life after she had passed her driver’s license test in high school.

She graduated from cosmetology school after high school and met the love of her life Nick, and was happily married on July 14, 2007. She had decided to change her profession and go into health care, and became a certified nursing assistant because of her passion for helping others.

On February 20, 2009, she experienced sudden symptoms of a severe headache which was caused by an acute subarachnoid hemorrhage. Her passing left a huge void for those of us who were fortunate enough to have her in our life.

She donated her wonderful, giving heart, both kidneys and tissue.

After she had passed away, we were contacted by her heart recipient. He had sent us the most beautiful letter of appreciation and we feel a connection that words cannot describe. It was such a relief to hear from him, to know how much he appreciated Tiffany’s gift of life.

We love you forever and miss you everyday.

Bruce and Taryn Schultz
