After graduating from Notre Dame Academy in Waterbury, CT, she attended Bay Path College.

She leaves three nephews and one niece, Ian Powell, Mackenzie Powell, Henry Powell, and Harley Harris, her four greatest sources of joy. In addition, Tara leaves behind her devoted friend, Scott Obara, and her three feline babies, Lexie, Chloe, and Summer. In addition, Tara was the glue for a network of extended family. She will be remembered for her infectious giggle, generous nature, and unwavering loyalty to those she loved. In memory of Tara, dish yourself up some chocolate ice cream, play Round and Round by Ratt loud enough so your neighbors complain, and paint your toenails purple.
