On June 13, 2021, God called Tara Antoinette Aliotta into his arms. Tara was born on October 23, 1958 in Long Branch, NJ, and she resided in Lakewood NJ. Tara attended Monmouth University, and graduated with a master’s degree in early childhood education. Tara’s career began as a preschool teacher at Star of the Sea School in Long Branch, NJ, as well as Oakhurst Country Day School in Oakhurst, NJ. She later worked at the Shadowbrook restaurant in Shrewsbury, NJ as an event planner until she retired. Recently, she volunteered her time to serve others at the Church of the Visitation in Brick, NJ.
Tara was a beautiful soul who only saw the good in people. She eagerly went out of her way to extend help to others. She was the oldest of four siblings and is survived by her three sisters, Gemma Nastasi, Tina Joyce, and Dawn Heine, as well as her devoted love Steven Goldsmith. She was very close with her nieces and nephews and they meant the world to her. Her legacy will be remembered, and her loving spirit will always be cherished.
