Novinska, Tari Lynn

Tari Lynn Novinska, age 70, passed away on Saturday, March 29, 2024, at Talamore Living Center in Sun Prairie after a long illness. Tari was born on June 24, 1953; the first child of Howard and Jeanette (Biefer) Wagner. She grew up in Livingston and was a 1971 graduate of Iowa-Grant High School.

Moving to Pulaski in 1979, Tari worked as an HR Coordinator for F&M Banks until their closing. Her second career was an Assistant to Athletic Department in the Pulaski School system until her retirement. She was also the proud partner of Vern’s Hardware in Pulaski from 1993 to 2016 and was a member of Assumption BVM Catholic Church. Tari loved to follow Wisconsin sports and was a longtime supporter of Pulaski Athletics. 

Tari Lived her life to help others. Even as her health was failing, she always wanted to know what she could do for you. When her health was failing, her Wagner family and cousins stepped up and made sure that she was well cared for, the Wagner way.

Tari is survived by her children, Tyson (Carrie) Novinska of West Allis and Tamra (Jeff) Bickel of Dodgeville; grandchildren, Army Sgt Jaidon Novinska of NY and Clara and Richard Bickel of Dodgeville; two brothers, Al (Karen) Wagner of Lake Hallie and Todd (Sonja) Wagner of Sun Prairie; and her former husband and friend, Vern Novinska.

A graveside service will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday April 7, 2024, at Rock Church Cemetery in Livingston, WI, followed by lunch at My Turn North.  Soman-Laron Funeral home in Montfort is assisting the family. For online condolences, please visit www.larsonfuneralhomes.com.
