January 5, 1980 ~ December 14, 2021

Born in: Vero Beach, FL
Resided in: Greenfield, IN

Tara Lynn Runyon, 41 years of age, entered Heaven’s Gates on Tuesday, December 14, 2021 in Greenfield, IN. Tara was born to the late Ronald Dean Runyon and Diana Kay Runyon on January 5th, 1980 in Vero Beach, FL.

Even though her time was cut short, she made an everlasting impression upon all who knew her. She was sugar, spice, and some sassy all mixed into one. She loved riding horses, her three wheeled bike, and her golf cart all around our neighborhood growing up. She enjoyed playing with her baby dolls, putting together puzzles, and eating her favorite foods. She loved listening to music, clapping, dancing, and stomping all through our lives and into our hearts.

She obtained her certificate of completion/diploma from Pike High School in 1998. She was also employed with Sycamore in Brownsburg, IN and apart of several community programs that helped enrich her life through out the years.

She leaves precious memories to be cherished by her sisters, Theresa (Jeff) Haemmerle, Tammi (Randy) Escue, Angela (Kenny) Whitaker, and Cricket Melendez; and her many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

There will be a Celebration of Life held at a later date. Please check back for updates.

“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go and prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you myself, that where I am, you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” John 14:1
