Tara was born on Dec 7, 1977 in Kamloops, BC. She moved to Kelowna when she was 3 yrs old and spent many wonderful years growing up there. She went to OKM secondary school for 2 years and then transferred to KSS from which she graduated in 1995. She then moved to Vancouver, BC and went to the Blanche Macdonald Centre to become a Make-up artist and Esthetician. She worked for many years, had 2 beautiful boys Jake (10yrs) and Brody (5yrs) and moved to Maple Ridge, BC. Her most recent wish was to go back to school to become an Education Assistant. She spent many hours helping at the boys’ elementary school in Maple Ridge. She had a huge love for her family and close friends. She travelled back and forth from Maple Ridge to Kelowna frequently to see them all. In her final days, she was surrounded by her loved ones. She will be sorely missed.
