February 10, 1999 - September 6, 2023
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved angel, Talia Noelle Sweet on September 6, 2023 at the young age of 24. She was compassionate, thoughtful, loving, endearing, funny, and a vibrant soul who put everyone else before herself. She instinctively knew when others were hurting and used her humour and kindness to ease their pain. She loved to make people laugh with her banter and wit and especially loved children who gravitated to her instinctively for connection.
Talia grew up on the Sunshine Coast where she thrived and made lifelong connections through school, volleyball, soccer and dance. She was a product of a wonderful network of family, friends, coaches, and community who helped guide her through her formative years. She went to the University of Calgary after graduation to study Communications but was forced to change her plans during COVID. Her last few years were spent living in Vancouver with her mom while working hard, making new friends and experiencing city life. Talia was the person who would stop and help anyone in need on the streets of the city, she would never turn a blind eye.
Talia is survived by her mother, best friend and roommate Tara; her father Tom with whom she had a strong and loving connection; her brother Tristan who was her silent hero and her sister Teagan (Jaden) who was her closest confidante. Talia is also survived by her grandparents, Sally and Mike, whom she loved and respected. Many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends also played a large role in Talia's life and she will be greatly missed.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Talia at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 16, 2023 at Bethel Baptist Church, 5717 Mermaid Street, Sechelt. Those who knew and loved Talia and her family are invited to help celebrate her life and share memories.
