From the artsy trinkets to her warm hospitality, aunt Tari put herself into what she did.
My only regret of the time I was blessed with sharing with her, is that I did not have more of it.
I love you and will always think of you with your warm smile and straight forward demeanour that made knowing you easy and loving you essential.

Tari was a loving, devoted, and caring wife and mother to Rick to Ryan and Jason. She would glow when talking about her grandchildren She will be missed by everyone who’s life she touched. The memories of growing up with her as a child, teenager and adult are constantly flooding back in waves. She was smart talented and generous to a fault.

I am thankful for the time we had together growing up and more recently last month when we shared meals, stories and laughs when I was in Port Alberni. I really wish I had taken pictures. My condolences go out to everyone in her family and ours that are having to deal with the profound loss. She left us too soon and I miss her

Rick & family- Denise & I are so very sorry for your loss. We both have fond memories of Tari.
Prior to ever meeting her, I had great conversations on the phone from Nova Scotia in regards to my employment @ Westland Insurance starting in January of 2011. She also provided Denise with employment on a contract basis taking photos for Westland Insurance, as well as some gardening work at your home.
Over the years we enjoyed Christmas parties, and visiting at your home. We remember having an absolute laughing fit with the two of you one evening-playing with your Dr. Ho machine!
We hope you will find some comfort in your many memories and over time begin your healing process. She was a gem and is greatly missed. Love & hugs to you and your family, Lori & Denise xoxo
