Tara Marie Rigg
Chelan, WA
Tara Marie Rigg passed away on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, at home in Chelan, Washington. She was born August 12, 1973 in Portland, Oregon. After a few years, she moved to Manson, Washington with her mother and sister and attended Manson schools. There, she excelled in volleyball and track. During Tara’s senior year, in 1992, she was awarded the title of Manson Apple Blossom Princess.
Following high school graduation, she attended Spokane Falls Community College and did studies to be an elementary school teacher for the deaf. While living in Spokane for a short time, she decided to move back home to Manson, and earn her CNA license.
Tara worked at Regency Manor Convalescent Home and Heritage Heights Assisted Living Center. Being a CNA for many years, she stopped working due to health problems.
Not being one to sit still, Tara coached her daughter’s AAU soccer team, attended church bible studies, and taught crafts at Vacation Bible School. Tara also contributed to Christma bazaars as a vendor, and sang in many Christmas cantatas. In addition, she played Mrs. Claus alongside her husband, as Santa.
Tara was preceded in death by her mother, Olivia Querin of Manson, Washington.
She is survived by her husband, John Rigg and daughter, Olivea Rigg, both of Chelan, Washington; oldest daughter, Alli Crider of Spokane, Washington; grandson, Brenden MacFarland of Tacoma, Washington; her oldest sister, Buffy Huzozick of Gaming, Austria and her father, John Dietrich of Mansfield, Washington.
Tara loved to cook and spend time with her family. She never met a stranger, and unconditionally loved everyone. Her smile and wicked sense of humor will be missed. Tara loved flowers. The family asks for a donation of flowers for her Memorial Service.
