Tasha Tudor 1915-2008

I got this email moments ago.  Sad, very sad.  But Tasha lived HER life, HER way.  What an inspiration she was.

It is with great sadness that we must tell you Tasha Tudor, 92, passed away in her Vermont home on June 18, 2008 surrounded by family and friends. We have created an online memorial website and invite all who loved Tasha to share their feelings and memories in the Memory Book section.

Awwww, very sad news. She was quite a gal. I am a fan of childrens books, loved her illustrations! She will be missed.

Hello, my first visit here…And such very sad news! I didn’t know Tasha had passed away. How much she will be missed…but her inspiration will live on! Thanks for the great link. Just wanted to say too, what a lovely blog you have here. The recipes are making me hungry! ;o)

Thank you for this post. I have adored Tasha Tuder`s work for thirty plus years. When my son was three his grandmother sent him a book, The Night Before Christmas with Tasha`s illustrations. I was entranced. Such a loss, but I still have her work to enjoy.

Love your blog. I like “green” free spirits!

I can’t believe she is gone!!

I tried to get to the link you posted, but it isn;t working.


This news was very sad. And I was dissapointed there was not a public memorial, however I found an article online from a newspaper that there will be a public memorial held. I thought as a fan, I would share the information with you.

The public is welcome to join friends and family of distinguished Vermont illustrator Tasha Tudor to celebrate her life.
Fans of the beloved artist, who was known for her trademark Welsh Corgi dogs and her mid-19th century lifestyle, are invited to say farewell at the public memorial service on Friday, Sept. 12, beginning at 6:45 p.m. at the Adams Family Farm in Wilmington.

“There wasn’t a good way for them (Tasha’s fans) to grief and remember and celebrate her life,” said Natalie Wise, officer manager with the Tasha Tudor and Family Inc. “The family would like to welcome everyone to come and celebrate Tasha’s life.”

This will be the first public event since her death on June 18. While there is no charge to attend the ceremony, residents will have to reserve a spot ahead of time by calling 802-257-4444
