Tammy spent her teenage years at Patrick Henry Girls Home in Bedford where she graduated top of her class from Liberty High School. Tammy went on to attend Sweet Briar College and Averett University. In 2010, Tammy met the love of her life Cynthia, in a Walmart in Norfolk as they were arguing over a forklift. On Aug. 13 they celebrated 10 years of marriage.
Tammy was a lover of animals and had an assortment of furry friends that found their way to her. She also enjoyed spending many hours fishing with her relatives on the local riverbanks as well as on the Chesapeake Bay. Tammy loved stalking out the Bingo halls where she always seemed to win more than she lost. Her luck ran out with the cancer diagnosis.
Special thanks to American Cancer Society of South Boston and Centra Hospice.
