Tiara Marie Duran, 42 of Albany, was welcomed home with open arms by her Heavenly Father on June 26, 2021.
Tiara was born on June 6, 1979, to Teresa Wallace in Pasco, Washington.
Tiara never met a stranger. She made everyone feel so loved and special. Tiara's zest for life was contagious. She had the most beautiful smile that could light up a room and the best laugh ever! Her loud and colorful leggings matched her joyous and bright personality.
In her spare time, Tiara loved spending time with her beloved partner Chris, going on outdoor adventures, hiking, kayaking, visiting waterfalls, trying new recipes, volunteering, and spending time with family and friends: Chloe, Daisy and Truffle. But most of all she loved and adored her children.
Tiara graduated with honors from LBCC in 2016. She volunteered countless hours to many organizations including Habitat for Humanity, CASA, Creative Housing Coalition, American Legion, among others.
Tiara is survived by her mother Teresa; partner Chris; daughter Haley (Paul); son Gabe; sister Andrea; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, family, and many loved ones.
Tiara was preceded in death by her Grandma Maxine and Grandpa Dale.
A Celebration of Life service will be held on July 11th, 3 PM, at Neighborhood Church (2815 Pine St. SE in Albany).
AAsum-Dufour Funeral Home is handling the arrangements (www.aasum-dufour.com).
