Angie Barranco Tarrer

August 14, 1925 - September 4, 2021

Angie Barranco Tarrer, 96, of Beaumont, died Saturday, September 4, 2021. She was born on August 14, 1925, in Beaumont, to Salvadore and Venera Barranco. Angie was a member and volunteer at St. Joseph Catholic Church.

Angie and her husband of fifty-four years, Ray Tarrer, enjoyed traveling in their motorhome to Colorado and as far away as Alaska. “Maw Maw”, as she was called, loved playing Mexican Train and Skip Bo with her friends and grandkids and the many phone conversations with her best friend of over fifty-five years, Rose Coe.

With her passing there is a major hole in all our hearts. The space will never be completely refilled. We are all better people for knowing such an endearing woman, and she will be forever loved and missed.

Our family would like to give a special thank you to Joyce Mitchell for the many years caring for Angie with love and compassion. Mom truly loved you like a daughter!

Survivors include her son, Richard Tarrer and his wife, Sherry, of Pearland and Joe Tarrer and his wife, Rosa, of Houston; daughter, Regina Tenner and her husband, Jack, of Beaumont; grandchildren, Danielle Miller and her husband, Joey; Brooke, Stephanie, and Melissa Tarrer; Brian and Derek Tenner; and Colleen Jaurequi and her husband, Ryan; great-grandchildren, Joshua and Tyler Graf and Meredith Jaurequi; sister-in-law, Mary Sue Barranco, of Monroe, Louisiana; and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Ray Tarrer; son, Samuel Edward (Bubba) Tarrer; and infant daughter, Deborah Elizabeth; brothers, Frank, V. J., and Anthony Barranco; and grandson, Scott Tarrer.

A gathering of Mrs. Tarrer’s family and friends will begin at 5:00 p.m., with a Rosary recited at 7:00 p.m., Thursday, September 9, 2021, at Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont. If you can, wear yellow, Angie’s favorite color.

    This is a family that is not hard to forget. Known Raye and Ange when we were kids not even in school. Raye had the shop on College and since my daddy was in racing, a lot of time was spent there. So happy to congratulate this family on a wonderful mother and daddy who loved them dearly. You have been blessed and you should have precious memories. God bless each of you.

    I am so sorry to hear of Angie’s passing. She really did light up a room and always seemed very happy to see you. She and my grandmother, Josephine Fertitta Giardina were cousins and close so many years ago. Angie will be looking over all her family from her place in heaven.
