Tammy was a loving mother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. She had a vibrant personality, loved to love and most of all cherished being with her family. Her sons Preston and Justin, were the greatest joy in her life, and her smile will be irreplaceable. She never met a 'stranger" and was easy to make a friend wherever she went.

Those who knew Tammy, loved her instantly. She had a big heart and touched so many of us with a lasting impression that will never be forgotten. She was an extraordinary and one-of-a-kind person; loved by everyone who was fortunate enough to know her. It was a great honor to have her as part of our lives; words cannot express how much she was loved and how much she will be missed. We know that everyone who knew her will forever have a place in their hearts for the goodness and kindness she brought. This will forever be treasured. "To live in the hearts, we leave behind is not to die." Thomas Campbell.

Tammy, born and raised in St. Mary's County, MD was a homemaker who enjoyed cooking, having cookouts and sharing dinner with family and friends.

She loved everything about the outdoors, yard sales, fishing, crabbing, camping or just hanging out at the beach. Tammy attended Leonardtown High School, owned and operated a cleaning business.
