Tara Buchholz

Tara Ranee (nee Blue) Buchholz

 

Age 53, most recently residing in Hillsboro, passed away on July 22, 2023 at Mercy Jefferson in Festus, Missouri. Born June 21, 1970 in Delaware, OH to her parents Robert Blue and Wanda (nee Ebright) Blue. In high school she was a "Sweetheart", a "Looker" some may say and she was also the 1988 Prom Queen of Hillsboro High School. She married her sweetheart Joseph Buchholz who passed away in February of 2002. Tara mostly worked in the administration department in the healthcare field and was a member of Redeemer Lutheran Church of DeSoto, Missouri. When she wasn't spending time with family and friends she greatly enjoyed landscaping, traveling, animals, collecting candles and lotions from one of her favorite stores, Bath and Body. She loved her black lab, Max, Heidi the Pitbull/lab, and Fritz the cat - they were in a constant battle!

Sons- Collin Buchholz of Hillsboro, MO and Kyle Buchholz of Hillsboro, MO

Siblings- Brian (Melissa) Blue of Maryland Heights, MO and Liza (Terry) Cozart of Hillsboro, MO

Several Nieces and Nephews
