Tammy was a beautiful person and the life of the party; she had a laugh that was contagious and could get anyone going. Tammy was the embodiment of rock ‘n’ roll; leather, high heeled boots, and all. She loved concerts and was an avid Matchbox Twenty, Chris Cornell, Kid Rock and Lumineers fan. During the spring and summertime she loved to garden and always had the most beautiful yard on the block. She loved making bouquets out of the flowers that she grew. Tammy was a talented poet, writer, and a skilled crafter. She was a natural home-maker and decorated beautifully for the every holiday; always bringing a certain magic to every special occasion. Tammy was an excellent cook and baker and never let a guest leave hungry. She loved planning and throwing birthday parties for her loved ones and always made special occasions feel truly special.
