Everyone who knew Tammy knew her love of softball. A proud moment in her life was when -at the age of 12 she played baseball with Dixie Youth Baseball. She was the first female player in the state to accomplish this and was featured in Sports Illustrated. She then went on to continue to play numerous softball and co-ed leagues, making life-long friends along the way.
Though she loved softball, baseball and band, Tammy’s favorite role was that as a grandparent. She treasured her time with her grandkids and loved being their Memaw, never failing to show them how much she loved them every chance she got.
Tammy had an optimism and love of life that was contagious to all those around her. She was the definition of a people person and was the one that “got things done.” To know Tammy was to love Tammy. There will forever be an empty spot in our hearts and an empty chair on the front porch.
