Remembering Tarese Binns

Tarese Binns died at the age of 36 in her home surrounded by loved ones on February 16, 2018 in Salt Lake City, UT. She was born in Bountiful, UT on February 11, 1982 to her father Richard Moyle Binns and her mother Tamara Tuttle Binns.

Tarese loved life to the fullest possibility! Her favorite pastimes were music, swimming, eating, and being part of the party. She participated in many community productions including Jungle Book, The Wiz, and Beauty and the Beast. Tarese attended special primary, special mutual, and Camp Kostopulos. Disneyland held a special part of Tarese’s heart. She raised her hands high on Pirates of the Caribbean, Big Thunder Mountain, and sang to her hearts content on Small World. Another favorite pastime was playing with her nieces and nephews, especially if they would sing or play her favorite Michael Jackson tunes. She also loved dogs; her dog Luke got extra tight hugs and licks. Tarese was greatly loved and left this world a better place because she graced us with her pure love and example of true happiness!

Tarese was certainly a joy to be around at TURN. She was almost always happy. She loved to hug people. Sometimes, she did not want to let go! Her cheerful demeanor was appreciated by everyone that knew her and by folks that had just come in contact with her. She will certainly be missed by all our staff and her peers at TURN's Adventure Center.
