Tammy was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to many.

Tammy was a very simple woman who was also an amazing and caring person and a dedicated caregiver and loved her job caring for others. She worked for many years as a caregiver for so many. Tammy attended Eastgate Church in Dayton.
Tammy pursued many interests, some of which included her love of listening to old school country, R & B music, and Maxwell with her daughter Roselind, being outdoors, and going to waterparks. Her favorite hobby of all was spending time with her family and shopping for her grandbabies. Tammy enjoyed playing card games, the marble and dice game, Aggravation on a handcrafted board made by Timothy Morse. She also liked spending time in Galveston and Kemah, drinking coffee all day, coloring, and watching movies and old-time TV shows with her fiancé Eric. Tyler Perry movies were her absolute favorite.
