Legacy Work

Legacy work can take many forms: family genealogy, written or recorded stories of the ancestors, a personal life history, memory book or scroll, chest of mementos, musical composition or collection of meaningful works, symbolic art work, ethical wills, and much more. The product of the work can become a treasured family heirloom, passed down from generation to generation.

The work can be done at any stage: near the very end of life; in one’s later years; or much earlier in life, when one has a desire to consciously plan for the legacy they will someday leave. In this case, the work can be an ongoing process that builds and grows year after year. The work can be done by the individual alone or can involve family members as an integral part of the process. Or the legacy work can even be performed by the family after a loved one’s death as a way to honor their life and memory and aid in the grieving process.

Tara has a passion for this work, and can facilitate the process with individuals or families. She has extensive experience with genealogical research, a love of history and antique photographs, has worked with many different artistic outlets on the subject of memory and legacy, and is currently in training as an end-of-life doula.
