Born June 11, 1978, she was a daughter to Burton (Carol) Amon and Donna (Scott) Amon. Tara was the kindest most supportive individual who would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. Although she had some struggles throughout her life she overcame them with resilience and was an amazing mother and grandmother. Tara’s grandchildren brought her great joy and meant the world to her. Tara found her calling in life and became a great CCA worker whom the residents loved and will surely miss.

Tara was predeceased by her maternal grandparents Emile and Mariette Deveau; as well as paternal grandparents Phil and Estella Amon; she was also predeceased by her common-law partner Sandy Murphy; aunt, Cheryl Earle;uncle, Bob Earle; and cousin, Chris Amon.
