Tara Folsom

Tara Folsom, a beloved mother, wife, and friend, passed away on February 8, 2024, in Indianapolis, IN after an extended illness. She was born on November 30, 1975, in San Diego, CA. 

Tara graduated from Chrysler High School in New Castle, IN as part of the Class of 1994. Although attending college for a brief period, Tara devoted much of her time and energy to her family and career. For many years, she contributed her skills and dedication to Ed Martin and Andy Mohr auto sales.

In addition to her professional accomplishments, Tara's proudest achievements revolved around her role as a mother and wife. She cherished her family dearly and took great joy in being there for them every step of the way. Tara was known for her extremely good work ethic, caring nature, and loving spirit. She had a bright light that shone wherever she went and she had the incredible ability to make everyone she met feel like a friend. Tara was loved by all who knew her.

Outside of work and family life, Tara had a few passions that brought her immense happiness. Each year, she indulged in a much-anticipated beach vacation with her loved ones. There was nothing quite like watching the waves crash against the shore while feeling the warm sand beneath her feet. Tara also found solace in working out in her yard. Her home was adorned with an abundance of beautiful flowers both inside and outside.

Tara's positive outlook on life touched the hearts of many. Her contagious enthusiasm and vivacious personality were truly special qualities that will be remembered by all who knew her. Whether it was lending a helping hand or sharing a warm smile with someone in need, Tara was always ready to bring sunshine into people's lives.

The services will provide an opportunity for friends and loved ones to come together and share their cherished memories of Tara.
