FARNHAM—Tara Lynn Wallace passed away in Farnham on September 10, 2018, at the age of 52.
She was the daughter of Linda Bartlett of Sun City Center, Fla., and C.H. Wallace of Virginia Beach. She was the stepdaughter of Ralph Bartlett.
Tara was born in Norfolk and graduated from Englewood High School, Jacksonville, Fla. She received her degree in human studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
She leaves behind her parents; her son, Jason Handy of Salt Lake City, Utah; and grandson, Jacob Adams of Utah; brother, Chad Wallace of Virginia Beach; sister, Azure Bartlett-Strait of Ruskin, Fla.; a niece and two nephews, Lily Wallace of Virginia, Dylyen Tiggle of Ruskin and Kelly Steele of Corpus Christi, Texas; and extended family of Bartletts who accepted her with love.
She was loved and appreciated by people from all walks of life.
Tara came into the world as a first child and first grandchild in her family. She was a beautiful little toe-headed blonde who was precocious, good in school and energetic. She grew into a beautiful young woman who was quick with a witty remark and had a natural talent for writing. She never met a stranger. She was very tender hearted and was filled with empathy for others. Tara will be missed by life-long friends, aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family. She was unique and never boring and will be remembered with love by many who, even though they mourn her loss, know she is at peace.
There will be a memorial service at 1 p.m. on October 14 at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Rappahannock, 366 James Wharf Road, White Stone.
