SMRDELY, Tamara October 7, 1926 – October 12, 2016 Tamara was born in Belarus and immigrated to Canada, settling in Lethbridge. There she married and started her family. The family moved to Calgary in 1958. Tamara worked as a seamstress. She loved singing, dancing, music; she loved to be with people. Tamara was much loved and will be deeply missed.
