Tara Elizabeth Weir Eisworth
Aspen, CO Colorado
It’s said a smile can light up a room; Tara’s smile lit up the world. Tara Elizabeth Weir Eisworth was born to Marshall and Kristin Weir on Aug. 28, 1973 in Oklahoma City, Okla., where she lived her entire life. She left this world unexpectedly on Nov. 22, 2010.
Tara was blessed to have married the love of her life, Randy, on Dec. 13, 2008.
They shared a love of animals, family, reading and football – of course they were never in agreement as to which team was superior. Tara found her best friend and soul mate in a true southern gentleman and die-hard LSU fan from St. Francisville, La.
Tara is beloved by her two younger sisters, Shea and Meg. All three had a passion for the mountains in Aspen, Colo., where they created many precious memories in the cabin at Fall Creek, on the slopes of the Highlands and at the tables of Krablooniks.
Her little cousins, who fondly referred to her as Aunt Tara, also cherished her. She was a constant presence in their lives and never missed an opportunity to cheer them on at sporting events or in life.
It was the simple things in life that brought Tara great joy, including chocolate chip cookie dough, cake and flowers; but she adored nothing more than her dogs and Sooner football. She was always a permanent fixture on the sideline at Owen Field.
She was a loyal alumna of Casady School. She was a devoted member of All Souls Episcopal Church. Tara took pleasure in helping others, even those unknown to her.
Tara was an avid reader and had a substantial personal library. She collected quotations and always found the perfect quote for the perfect day or the perfect someone. In addition to her love of literature, she sought comfort from writing in her journal. She had a keen memory and could recall even the slightest details from times past.
Tara is survived by her parents, Kristin and Marshall Weir; sister and brother-in-law Katherine Shea Weir and Sean Nevin; sister Julie Margaret Weir; devoted canine companion, Tallulah; in-laws Beryl and George Eisworth; brother-in-law Rysty Eisworth; nieces Isabella and Sophia Nevin; aunts and uncles Teri Taaca, Perry Taaca, Kasey Morrow and Morton Weir; and cousins Derek Taaca, Tiffany and Mims Talton, Erin and Craig Johnston, Liza Taaca, Josh Taaca, Lori Weir, Ashlie Carey, Justin Carey, Tiffany and Thomas Taaca, Brooks and Lydia Talton, and Luke, Henry and Edward Johnston.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Jimmy Everest Cancer Center, 1200 N. Phillips Ave., 10th Floor, Oklahoma City, OK, 73104 or Animal Rescue Friends, 1009 Northwest 75th Street, Nichols Hills, OK, 73116.
The service was held at All Souls Episcopal Church on Friday, Nov. 26 at 1 p.m. There will be a private burial following the service at Rose Hill Cemetery.

Joe Biden became the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday, declaring that “democracy has prevailed” as he took the helm of a deeply divided nation and inherited a confluence of crises arguably greater than any faced by his predecessors.
