The entire family was blessed to have you as a teacher at one time or another, even some of our grandchildren for a short time. Our hearts are broken knowing that you are no longer with us here on earth. God gained a very special angel and we lost a very beautiful friend and mentor. Praying that God wraps His loving arms around your family and grants them the peace that surpasses all understanding. Because He promised us, we know that we will see you one day in heaven. May God watch over Tammy, her children and all who loved her and and may He comfort them. So blessed to have known your mother, grandmother, loved one, friend. Sending love and hugs to all of you. Doug and Vickie White and family.

What an amazing lady with a beautiful soul. She always had a smile on her face and words of wisdom to share. Even if you hadn’t seen her in years, when you did, it was as if you just talked the day before. She has touched so many people and their hearts over the years; the number is beyond what we could imagine. She will always have a special place in my heart ! Until we meet again! Much love and a prayer for peace beyond understanding to Tammy and her family.

Heaven just got a little brighter!

I met Fran a year ago when she helped with our play rehearsal during the entire rehearsal period. I was very nervous about my first musical solo. Fran was so supportive and encouraging. She laughed at our scenes no many how times she saw them. A wonderful woman!

May God’s perpetual light shine upon Fran. She taught my English section at North Baltimore. She was an inspiration. She always stayed in touch. I’ll cherish the prayer blanket she gave me. She tried to cultivate the good in others. She definitely left her mark on the world. She will be sorely missed. I have been constantly beseeching god and praying for God to wrap his arms around her and provide those left to mourn in the wake of her tragic passing. Prayers for more peace and comfort.

Tammy and family,
Sorry to hear of your loss/our loss of your mother. She was a great lady and will be missed.

Those schoolmates from that generation are quickly shrinking. Besides my mother and others, there are few left---what a great group! Jerry Greiner

Our deepest sympathy on the passing of your mom. She truly brought sunshine to everyone she met. Not only were we neighbors at one time with her, we also had the privilege of interacting with her at church events. She was always so kind and had a smile on her face.
