She was born November 2, 1964 in Algoma. Tammy was a loving wife and mother with her most prized accomplishment being her family. She was especially proud of her sons and being “Grammy Tammy” to her grandchildren.
Tammy had a wonderful sense of humor, with dirty jokes being her specialty. During her working years she spent her days as a caregiver and nights working as a bartender. She loved ALL kinds of people and being the life of the party. Tammy’s favorite holiday was Halloween and often decorated and dressed up to celebrate her most cherished time of year. Before her illness, she loved to cook for her family. She was most known for her “Tammy pieces” of dessert. Tammy adored her cats. She came to love and follow Tractor Pulling for her boys and was the Salzsieder Pulling Team’s number one fan.
