Tara Ann Lucia, 63, a lifelong resident of Stamford passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Thursday, December 22, 2022 at Stamford Hospital. She was born in Stamford on December 16, 1959 to the late John Walter and Doris Goggin Troy.
Anyone who knew Tara Ann will remember her with a cup of coffee in hand, rooting for her favorite sports teams. She never missed a Yankee game, but she most enjoyed watching her Giants with her husband. She was quite the creative chef, making “concoctions” for dinner daily, then making her family guess the ingredients (teriyaki was always the first one.) She was funny, quick witted, and a very strong person. Nothing brought a brighter smile to her face than being with her children, nieces and nephews, and family.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 36 blissful years, Robert Lucia , her loving children, Troy, Patrick and Bethany Lucia, and her sister, Mary Beth Troy all of Stamford.
Family and friends may call at the Nicholas F. Cognetta Funeral Home & Crematory, 104 Myrtle Avenue, Stamford on Wednesday, December 28, 2022 from 8:30-10:30 AM with a Mass of Christian Burial to be celebrated at 11:00 AM at St. Bridget’s of Ireland RC Church, 278 Strawberry Hill Avenue, Stamford. Interment will follow at St. John’s Cemetery, Darien.
