Tara’s Service or as we like to call it “Tara’s Grand Encore “ will be held on Tuesday 16th March at the 

Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre Penrith, inside the Q Theatre.  Doors Open 10.30 for 11.00 start.


Tara has requested that where possible everyone wear either Yellow, her most favourite colour

or Green in reference to Tinkerbell.


Following the service we have requested a private burial for Tara, by invitation only, we hope you please respect our wishes.

We would however, love everyone to join us afterwards at the Penrith Golf Club, 1939 The Northern Road, Penrith for light refreshments, which will commence at approx 2.00pm.


Flowers are most welcome at the service, or you may wish to make a donation in memory of

Tara to Canteen, envelopes will be available at the service.


Please join us to honour our Beautiful Tara, she deserves the most special send off we can give her .


Matthew, Melissa and Annika

    Dear Tara/Tink
    Words will never describe how deeply broken my heart is!
    You were one amazing young lady, a shining light who lit up a room with that infectious smile of yours.
    Your determination, love of drama in particular, your intelligence and maturity and your beautiful caring, generous, mentoring nature was absolutely impeccable!
    I can’t thank you enough for being the person you were and for being a beautiful part of our lives.
    The way you cared and looked out for Charlotte like a big sister was truly appreciated and although she wasn’t often in touch with you she thought of you always!
    You will be missed so much by so many who loved you especially your immediate family and I am soooo deeply saddened for their great loss!!
    I will always remember the times we shared and treasure them forever!
    Fly high our beautiful Tink, R.I.P. and I hope you get to finish what you started here, in Neverland!
    Gone way tooooo soon xxxxxx 💛💚💛💚💛💚

    Dear Tara
    Absolutely gutted for your family.
    Such a gifted, beautiful young lady who excelled at anything you put your hand to.
    I can still see you in you as a toddler walking around the room at Donna Jeans Danceforce. You then danced your little heart out for years with the big girls and the young ones. You were a tiny little floss who was outgoing, brilliant and smile that left you feeling warm and fuzzy.
    You looked like a beautiful butterfly in your year 12 graduation dress.
    You will be missed however your presence will always be here with everyone who new you.
    Love and hugs to your family sweetheart. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    Love Michelle, Adrian and Patricia.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Dear Tara,

    You were such an inspiration and although you are no longer with us, your memory will live on.
    You made the best brownies according to Shane and he’s eaten a lot of brownies over the years!
    You entertained Brianna when she was younger while I was having a dress fitting or talking to your mum it has been a pleasure getting to know you and your family over the years.
    I will never forget how sweet you were and all the wonderful things your mum would share about you.
    The world has truly lost someone special … fly high beautiful girl. ❤️ 🧚

    Much love,
    Jeanette, Shane and Brianna xx
