She enjoyed being outside, watching her children’s sports and spending time by the lake.

Tammy is survived by her children Austin Mackedanz of Rochester and Alyssa (Aaron) Eiynck of Avon; granddaughter Peyton; siblings Bob (Mary Kay), Ron (Jackie), Deb (Dave) Schmitz, Sandy Schwartz, Gary, Tim, Terry (Dale) Schwartz and Don “Ozzo” (Sonja); and sister-in-law Sharon Mackedanz, as well as generations of nieces and nephews.

Tammy is preceded in death by her parents and brother Tom.

A special thank you to the staff at the Good Shepherd Community and CentraCare Hospice for the tender care she received.
