Born Gatanny Lynn Tripp, her family dubbed her Tammy and that is what they called her. She came into her “family” in 1974 when she met Rhonda in school. They immediately bonded as sisters and remained lifelong friends. Tammy was kindhearted and her favorite color was pink. She loved stuffed animals and putting together jig saw puzzles. Tammy loved animals and especially the babies. She will be truly missed by those that knew and loved her.
Tammy is survived by: four siblings; her closest and lifelong friend, Rhonda Vancil; and her adopted aunt, LaGuin Barnett as well as a host of friends that she made through the years.
She was preceded in death by her parents.

You have gone into the heavens
Where we cannot see
There is no shadow of doubt
That’s where you’d rather be
Nothing to prove, no one to please
Now rest and be at ease
