It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce that our beloved Calandra Madrid Tallabas passed on July 29, 2023 at her home, age 45. She was such a beautiful child, born to Michael and Lucinda Tallabas on August 26, 1977. She is alongside her mother in heaven now, whom she loved dearly.
Calandra is survived by her son, Orlondo Tallabas, whom she adored with all her heart. As well as her father, Michael Tallabas, her grandfather, Antonio Tallabas, her brothers and sisters, numerous aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews.
She attended St. Jerome Elementary School, graduated from Xavier High School, and attended UofA. Calandra was a beautiful and intelligent woman, she had a great sense of humor and bubbly personality. She was very loving, creative and kind, ready to help her family and friends whenever needed.
