He graduated from Parkway High School in 1979, and worked at Plastipak Packaging in Jackson Center as a fork lift operator.

Tara Lynne Scare

Tara Lynne Scare, 35 years old of Pleasant Mills, Indiana, passed away at 9:20 p.m. on Saturday, April 3, 2010 at her residence of a long-term illness.
Tara was born on Wednesday, October 23, 1974 in Decatur, Indiana the daughter of Philip W. Scare and Teresa S. (Wolfe) Scare, both of whom survive.

Tara was a graduate of Parkway High School Class of 1993; she was voted the one to Dare to be Different and that never changed, remember her prom dresses? Tara was in the National Honor Society and SADD group. She served as President in both the Future Business Leaders of America and Art Club. In Yearbook, she served as Publicity Leader and Vice President for Student Council. She was also voted Football Homecoming Attendant her Sophomore year and Queen her Senior year.

Tara graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in 1998 from Bowling Green State University in Ohio; and was a member of the Delta Gamma Sorority. In her sophomore year she served as Public Relations/Activities Chair and in her junior year she was Vice President of Rush and Recruitment. Although she was not an Official Delt Sweetheart, many of them say that she will always be a permanent one! She assisted in just about anything that needed a creative touch like, posters, shirts and invitations. Her talent is literally painted on the Delta Gamma Sorority House walls. While in BGSU, she studied Italian Art in Rome, Italy in the Summer of 1996.

She was attending the Academy of Art in San Francisco, California working on her Master's Degree in Fashion Design before moving home. We still have many of her story boards from her assigned projects and we just know that some day these designs will be on the runway – for real.

God created the most creative and talented person when He made Tara. She was an independent Artist for all of her life for Ad Agencies and commissioned work. She also dabbled in Radio and Restaurant jobs to help pay rent on a regular basis. It was always a given that she would be the party planner and social butterfly for the big night out. The parties that she put together were always the talk of the town.

Tara was lucky enough go from Willshire, OH to Bowling Green, OH for college then to Cleveland, OH for her first after-school journey in the real world and then all the way out to San Francisco, CA to earn her Masters Degree and then back to Pleasant Mills, IN before going to her heavenly home.

As for hobbies, she enjoyed arts and crafts – anything that she touched turned into Gold. That is why we knew it was her time to go when we saw beautiful rainbows for her to ride to her Heavenly home. She always proved how much she knew about sports by her legendary T-commentary for all televised and live sporting events she watched. She would love to go to any of the Basketball, Baseball and Football events in Cleveland and San Francisco. She loved to dine at the finest places and dress up for the night on the town with friends. It was one of her most favorite things to have a nicely plated dish with a fine wine.

Tara always enjoyed the outdoors and would try to get her hands in the dirt any chance she had. During her college days she would take random camping trips with her buddies and relax by the fire and listen the music of their drum circles. She often found serenity and a religious release when she would walk through the Japanese Rose Gardens in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. During her short stay in Pleasant Mills she enjoyed helping her dad plant then eat all of the fruits and vegetables of their labor.

She was a member of The Bridge Community Church, Decatur, IN and served in the Children’s Ministry with many of her aunts, grandmother and mother. She found joy in this and even was a leader with her sister at Vacation Bible School in the summer of 2009.

Surviving are her parents, Philip W. and Teresa S. Scare of Pleasant Mills, Indiana; grandmother, Dorothy "Dot" Wolfe of Pleasant Mills, Indiana; sister, Trisha Scare of San Francisco, California and 1,000s of Friends and Sorority Sisters all over the world.
