Tammy was a strong person who endured many trials in her life. At 19, Tammy was critically injured in a car accident. After a prolonged recovery period, she graduated with an associate degree from Belleville Area College. At 47, Tammy was successfully treated for a brain tumor. The “apple of her eye” was her son, Jason, who she loved dearly. Tammy was loved by all and will be missed.
