Tammy was preceded in death by her parents and the love of her life, Kevin Myles Davis.
Tammy loved to read, do crossword puzzles, listen to rock music especially Bob Segar, country music and dancing. She loved NASCAR, Rusty Wallace was her favorite driver and she even got to meet him in person while she was pregnant with Kevin. Tammy loved her son Kevin and there wasn't anything she wouldn't do for him or he wouldn't do for her. They loved fishing, going to the beach and to races as a family. There was no greater love in her life than Kevin Myles Davis but unfortunately things worked out different for them although she never stopped loving him.
Tammy had a passion for learning and school, so much so that there were several nights while we were going up to bed, if we made a little too much noise, she would jump out of the bed, get dressed, fly down the steps past all of us, running out the front door yelling she was late for school. Rod always had to go get her. Tammy was always in a hurry, from the time was was brought into the world until the end of her life, she was a spitfire, always in full speed. As a small girl, she loved having her hair in her 'palm tree' ponytail and kept her hair in her favorite 80's style until she passed. Tammy was great with numbers, doing taxes and book keeping and she had an amazing talent cutting and coloring hair.
Tammy was a precious girl and a beautiful woman. We love and miss you terribly Tammy. Rest in the arms of the Lord.
A private ceremony will be held in January 10, 2020 with a celebration of life gathering in the future.
