Tammy lived by the quote “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.”  and that is what she did.  She let her family know it was going to be ok by dancing one last time threw the rain.  Know matter what Tammy went thew she always put her family first.  She loved her grandkids and kids more than anything in the world.  She was proud of them all.  Tammy loved to go camping and take day trips with her husband.  Tammy loved spending time with her sisters and all their shopping trips.  She loved taking her grandkids on adventure days and making as many memories as possible.  She also enjoyed sewing and making things for her family.  

Survivors include her husband Randy; children Jason Root and Jessica (Michael) Beam; grandchildren Rodney, Rowdy, and Ruby Sue Beam; sisters Penny (Dale) Welch, Peggy (Mike) Murphy, Pam (Chuck) Friend, and Jodie (Rick) Underwood.  Along with many nieces and nephews, and dear friend Lori.

In the words of Tammy Sue Root “It’s been a great journey”
