Memories Timeline


  1. Bismarck ND
    So sorry to hear of Tammy’s passing. Tammy & I worked together 30 years ago at Adams, Inc. She helped me with my wedding. I moved to Bismarck and we lost touch, but always thought about her when I would go back to Fargo. When we worked together, Tammy made me this awesome birthday cake, it was a huge butterfly! We had a lot of fun working together. You are in my prayers.

  2. Avon INI have many fond memories of Tammy. She made life in high school bearable and our trip to New Orleans was a blast because of her. She was truly a blessing.

    Harriet, Terry, Tom and Family,

    We are deeply sorry for your loss. Tammy certainly had a spot in her heard for the children. Kids always seemed to make her smile (especially redheads!) We know that she looks down on them now and is still smiling.

    We will pray for peace during this difficult time.
