Tammy was a 1993 Graduate of Triton High School, Erwin, NC. She had many friends that she cherished. She worked for Dunn Daily Record in early adulthood before her health proved that would not be a life option for her. So she gave as much time as possible to Volunteer work with many groups. Some close to her heart like Cub Scout Pack 210 of Tuscarora Council. Where she helped on everything possible, including attending campouts with scouts and their families. Those boys and their families loved Tammy. She loved them more. Tammy never had her own children, however God blessed her to be in the lives of so many children. Tammy enjoyed going to the beach, dancing and riding motorcycles. Tammy loved her God, loved her family and her furry babies Daisy and Molly. She cherished her mother, sister, nieces and nephews.

We will miss her so very much! Rest assured she will be sitting in heaven watching over us all, awaiting our arrival when that time comes.
