Like so many my heart is broken that you are gone. It just doesn't seem real. There are not enough words to simply describe the life you lived. You were generous, kind, funny and fiercly loyal to those you loved. I will always remember your kind smile no matter what you were dealing with. Sending all my love and prayers to Tim, my cousins, your children, grandchildren and great granchildren.
I love you so much Tammi and will miss you until we meet again❤

I met Tammie about 12 years ago. We both were working as CNA"s at Restmor Nursing Home in Morton. We quickly became the best of friends, always acting silly and laughing. We loved working together. When she moved to Texas we would still get together whenever she came back to Pekin for a visit with her family. We texted monthly and were planning to see each other in the next couple of months. We both loved bragging and sharing pictures of our grandchildren. I was completely devastated when I heard of her passing. My thoughts and Prayer are with all of her family. They were everything to her. Until we meet again my friend!

Oh how do I describe the best sister anyone could have. When I lost my mom at a young age Tammie did her best to be there. She never held a grudge against anyone. I can't even describe what my heart feels like knowing we will not laugh act goofy or just be crazy sisters again. Sister I love you and will miss you so very much. I'll see you on the other side.

Love you Forever and Always
Your baby sister

I will miss my beautiful cousin. I will never forget her cooking at work when I stopped in and took a piece of what I thought was Salisbury steak. I took a bite and spit it out while she laughed her butt off. She never told me it was liver. She was fun person and I will miss her with all my heart. Love you Tammie Calvin and can't wait until we meet up again.
