Minacs (Whitley) Tara Anne
Sunrise - July 17, 1972 Sunset - March 20, 2023
It is with profound sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beautiful daughter, mother, niece, and friend.
Tara passed away in her home surrounded in love, with her closest family by her side.
Forever loved daughter of Karen Whitley, David and Debbie Whitley, cherished and devoted mother of Wade (Justin), loving niece of Marcia.
Tara will be lovingly remembered by extended family - the Smith's and Minacs’ and lifelong friends who have selflessly supported her throughout her difficult journey.
A certified personal trainer and holistic nutritionist, Tara dedicated her life to helping so many through fitness, nutrition and mental health. She fought her battle with great strength, courage, and dignity, always concerned about her family.
She leaves us with a certainty of her never ending joy of living.
Tara’s greatest love in life was her son Wade and her family. She cherished every moment with her son. Tara always said “He makes my heart smile.” Their unique relationship and bond of love will live on forever.
Tara, there are not enough words to thank you for your presence, your kind heart and the endless love you gave so freely. Your memory lives in each, and every one of us. We will love and carry you in our hearts forever.
Our family would like to thank all Tara’s PSW’s and nurses (Wen and Mona) for the wonderful care they gave her.
