Tara was a passionate athlete, meeting many of her cherished friends through playing volleyball, taking part in several marathons, and swimming competitively.

She would meet Rick through the University of Calgary swim team, and marry shortly after graduating, on June 2, 1979.

Her enthusiasm for sport carried on through all of her children as a proud “hockey mom”.


Through her early career as a high school teacher, Tara left a lasting impact on many of her students as they similarly transitioned into adulthood.
