Bert and Debra are heart broken to announce the sudden passing of our beloved daughter Tashanna Marie Ducharme on Feb 2 in Vancouver. She was born June 10, 1978 in Ft Nelson. She was a loving sister to Jared, Danielle and Dagan (Mercedes), and a fun-loving Aunty to Tabitha and Noah.
Tashanna is survived by a large loving family including maternal Grandparents, Jim and Elly Read of Vernon, 19 Aunts and Uncles, hundreds of cousins and many, many friends.
Tashanna was a talented artist with a kind and generous sprit. Her paintings and costumes brought life to many events. She was “mother earth” leading the save the rivers and painted all those stick salmon still seen regularly across Vancouver. Her many costumes and artistic creations will be treasured.
Tashanna led an adventurous life – Never a dull moment – She loved to travel and had seen many parts of the world. Born in a small town she had a big city heart. She was active in multiple causes and rallies in the lower mainland of B.C. specifically those relating to the environment, First Nations, and the social determinants of health. She was an advocate to her core.
We remembered Tashanna on Thursday February 12th, 2:00 p.m. at the Elks Hall in Salmon Arm. It was a casual, colorful affair. Goodbye to our unique, wonderful and cherished CHAOS FAERIE.
