ForeverMissed

"This memorial website was created by Ijaw Women Connect (IWC), in conjunction with the Ijaw Professionals Association (IPA) and the Ijaw Nation Forum (INF), in memory of our Beloved “Champion of Youth Empowerment & Mentorship”, BARR. TARE YERI.

The sad news of Tare’s death came as a rude shock to us all in several Ijaw Organizations. We commiserate with her family for the great loss. We, however, take solace in the fact that she had a vision while she lived and positively impacted on our people, particularly the youth and children. Tare was a brilliant lawyer and committed her life to Youth Empowerment and Mentorship, for the short span that she lived on earth.

We will forever love her and remember the motto. “The Hero Lies in You to Become”.

Tare's Vision that “If each one reaches out to one, the children in the Niger Delta communities will grow to be like you and me tomorrow”' resonates...

TARE, passionate believer in a greater future for children and youths LIVE ON... in your good works!"

TYYYY! THe tyranny of time and multitude of daily hassle condemn us to the virtually annual ritual of dropping you a line. But wasn’t it just yesterday you broke into my mind, teasing a smile out of me as I imagined you would have been feistily weighing in your bit now as your native BAYELSA begins another round of the leadership quest. Just yesterday. All that, not even knowing it was the eve of your anniversary. So you see, there is the annual ritual of remembrance. But there’s also the unforgettability of you that defies the tyranny of time’s passage. Rest on, BirthQueen.

Hello Ebullient,

More than diamonds, memories are for ever. You created more than your fair share of those.

The outpouring at that tribute service for you in Lagos still resonates.

Your NBA Section on Business Law has been giving a Tare Yeri Award for Service every year since you left.

Your light is still shining; the candle of the body burnt out long before the TY legend ever will.

Tare,

Another year, but the same memories: fresh.

We are currently in a lockdown situation, you could never have imagined, forced by an alien called novel coronavirus. I bet that you, Tare, would have been doing two things and more if you were in these times.

You would have found ways of reaching out, giving, to many who had less than you. Another way you would have reached out to everyone else would have been by gisting, laughing and sharing hope, with all your energy.

These are the images that your memories evoke for a time like this.

We miss you and your way.
April 22, 2020

Miss you,every single time we talk about you it’s always laughter and us trying to say the things you would say in different situations,you’re forever in our hearts,forever loved,forever missed.

Rest on Tare!!!!!!

Tare,
Nothing has changed. If you were still here, your passion might have been intensified, your love more direly needed by the increasing hordes of schooless kids, and your bleeding heart may have been broken as the polluted creeks you explored reveal more callousness and cluelessness that have left communities in constant grief and despair.
You're appreciated.
September 21, 2018
September 21, 2018
TY,
Your energy, vim, glow, vibe, and IMPACT will keep lasting in our minds and lives.
Your labours, they were not in vain.
Your people, you remain a heroine and angel in their story.
Rest in the Lord forever.

Happy birthday my sister, I love you much and really miss you. I cannot even put in words what your absence means to me.

L I F E ’S  S O J O U R N E Y

The world indeed is not our home;

We are all sojourner;

Each life’s journey does have its package;

It might look like, Tare Edith Yeri completed her life’s journey so soon;

It all about completing one’s mission on earth;

From all indications, Tare Edith Yeri did complete her earthly mission gracefully.

My encounter with Tare Edith Yeri,

First in Ijaw Nation Forum (INF) chat, as a family with concerns for humanity affair;

Second, at Atlanta, October 2016, furthering the mission of humanity under women organization;

Third at Californian, April 2017 at her hospital bed, and suddenly the journey is over.

Full of life, smile, and soft spoken, yet no tolerance of injustice.

These great memories just slip out in six months;

Lesson I learned visiting Tare Edith Yeri on her hospital bed on the 13th April 2017,

Still vibrant in her spirit of caring for others,

Even in her hospital bed she did outreach to people, and encouraging out encouraging words;

No self-pity, rather we laughed over the Mixed Cultural Dance Steps we will show off on her discharge from the hospital.

Little did I know, that will be my last chance of hearing her soft voice and smile.

Your sojourney you did complete in an amazing way.

To the family, stay strong.

To other associates be strong.

Life indeed is a sojourney, utilize every opportunity given wisely.

Tare Edith Yeri, we do Love and miss you, but Christ Loves you best!

Dein Na Mu, beloved sister.

From: Daerebo Brown-West

My sister, my friend

May 20, 2017

Dear Tare,
It is still a shock to me that less than five hours after speaking with you, I would get a call that you have returned home to your father and my father.

When we met, I was not interested in a friendship, I wanted to keep it simple, just the business of our Ijaw people especially our women and young girls, but you bulldozed your way into my life with your happy, loving and joyful ways. Who can resist that? We became sisters and shared so much. I could always rely on you to follow thru on our many plans. Sometimes you were in a hurry but now I understand, you were on a mission and needed to finish the job. I am heartbroken, I cannot hold back the burning tears that flow every time I remember all the good times we shared and all our plans.

Tare, you came and you lit the candle you were given and it will continue to shine brightly forever. Though your physical work on earth is complete, your heavenly work begins. My sister, as you put on your angels wings, remember us who are still here. May God Almighty grant you eternal rest "Correct Ijaw Babe" as you called yourself. Love you loads.

Today We Laid To Rest Fanny

May 17, 2017

<p>On this day, a classmate call Miss. Fanny passed away just like in the instant case. The entire class gathered in the campus premises after a solemn procession around the school to honour our departed. After which we posed for a group photograph.  You can see our own Tare Edith Yeri played her part by her presence as usual.</p><p>As always Tare is in the center of surrounded by many our others. We all prefer to be round her.</p><p>The Graduating AAU Law Class of "99</p><p>Roger O.</p>
