Alisha Darar

November 10, 2004 — August 6, 2022

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alisha Ousman Darar on August 6, 2022 at the age of 17 years.

Alisha was born in Regina, SK on November 10, 2004. She is survived by her siblings Nick, Ishmal, Dwayne, Emilio and Antoinette, mother Lillian Groom and father Abdisalan Darar, as well as her grandmother Jennifer Hudson. Alisha’s connection to her extended family, Heather and George Kerr including their extended family, will be forever cherished.

Alisha spent much of her life residing in the Portage la Prairie area, she attended Yellowquill School during her younger years and most recently attended Portage Collegiate for high school. Alisha was known for being fun, having a great sense of humor, and being a loveable person with no fears. Growing up Alisha enjoyed Brownies, 4H Club, Hip-Hop dance classes, and attending Diabetes Camp each summer. Alisha showed great enjoyment listening to music, doing arts and crafts, and spending time with those she loved. She was a social person who loved meeting people wherever she went, she would make people feel valued and loved. Alisha was always able to make others laugh or smile through her clever remarks and conversations. Her ambitions as she neared adulthood included pursuing counselling type work to help youth who may have had similar experiences as herself, she showed great ability and enjoyment working with both children and seniors.

"Alisha, it was a privilege to have you in our lives and we will always love you. Fly high Alisha.”
