Beloved wife of 56 years to Norman Forster. Loving mother to Greg, Steve and Cindy. Dearest grandmother to Brittany, Sierra, Tennyson, Ryerson, Ian, Quinn, and Amy.

Tash was a devoted and caring mother and wife who spent many years as a Homemaker. She kept the household running smoothly and always made sure that her loved ones were taken care of. Once all of her children had entered high school, Tash returned to the workforce where she proudly worked as a secretary in the Math Department at Mohawk College.

Earlier this year, Tash moved into a retirement residence in Stouffville, Ontario. She enjoyed the prepared meals, exercise classes, and numerous social activities.

Tash will be greatly missed by her husband, children, grandchildren, siblings, nieces/nephews, friends, and anyone who had the privilege to know her.
