In Memory of Tara Roe (Smith)

Tara Roe (Smith)This page has been set up to accept donations in memory of Tara Roe, originally from Brandon, MB, who last lived in Okotoks, AB. Tara passed on October 3, 2017 from her injuries sustained in the Las Vegas mass shooting. This message is from her family:
It is with great sadness that we write this. The untimely loss of Tara Roe is not only tragic but senseless. She was an incredible mother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt and friend to those around her and would stop at nothing to help her community and those close to her heart. Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada is a cause that was very important to Tara. She and Connor Thomson grew up together spending the summers at Clear Lake, Manitoba and when he fell ill she wanted to do everything she could to support him, his family and his friends. We ask that in lieu of flowers, that donations be made on Tara’s behalf to Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada. It is very true to Tara’s character that her last requests are as selfless as she was every single day she was alive. She will forever by loved and missed by so many.

Thank you for your gift that will provide hope to so many Canadians affected by a brain tumour.


We are so grateful for your support. Thank you!
