Tabby Marie Groover, 20, passed away Friday, March 9, 2018. She was born to Jason Blevins and Laura Groover on Oct, 18, 1997, in Kokomo.
Tab was the sweetest, most outgoing, funniest, most beautiful soul you could ever meet, and anyone who met Tab knows that. She never judged a soul and always saw the good in everyone. She was a prankster and loved joking around. If you ever laid your phone around her, later on you'd come to find a bunch of silly pictures on your phone with tons of silly faces. Her smile and laughter were contagious. As a kid, Tab wanted to grow up and be an "animal cop" to help the neglected animals -- she loved animals. But as she got older, she realized her dream was actually to open her own bakery. She followed this dream of hers all the way to her dream college, Sullivan University in Kentucky.
Tab had a TON of friends, it was impossible to be around her and not feel the love and positivity beaming off her. You couldn't go anywhere without her running into someone she knew. She was so loved. She was the hardest-working person you've ever met; she got that from her mom. Three days after returning home from college she had a job, and a second one within a week. But Tab LOVED working, she LOVED being around people, being included. She LOVED being the center of attention. Tab just LOVED life. She volunteered at KHS candy shop and many sporting events in the concession stands. Tab was determined to make a good life for herself. She worked hard and long every day to try to get where she wanted, and she was doing such a GREAT job, we are all so proud of her. She never let anyone down. One thing that everyone has told us is that Tab made their bad days, good ones, and the good ones, great ones. It was impossible to be upset around Tabby. She was everyone's own personal ray of sunshine, she ALWAYS lit up a room. Tab was the best friend anyone could ever ask for, your own personal diary, no matter what she had going on she was ALWAYS there for her friends and family when they needed her. Tabby gave her all in everything she did, giving up for her wasn't an option.
