Tara passed away on March 17th, 2022.

She is survived by her son, Latham Dean, her Mother and Father - Renee and Mark Stilley, Sister and Brother-in-law - Amber Stilley and Joel Denmark, Nephew - Logan Hunter, Grandparents - Donna and Fred Pedersen, Barbara and Larry Stilley, as well as uncles, aunts and cousins.

Tara was born and raised in Mount Shasta, California. After high school she moved to Bend, Oregon for college (and snowboarding) and later moved to Portland, Oregon where she started her training as a flight attendant, a career she dearly loved that allowed her to make friends and share the immeasurable love she had in her heart with so many. In 2020, Tara moved back to Mount Shasta to be closer to family and raise her son, Latham, in her hometown.

Tara was a loving and proud mother who was always eager to share about her son and his accomplishments as well as share endless photos she had of him. She was charismatic, kindhearted, accepting, hilarious, a free spirit and genuinely herself. She lit up all our lives in a way that will be missed forever.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, May 21 at 2pm at the Mount Shasta ski park, 4500 Ski Park Hwy, McCloud, CA 96056

All are welcome.
