Tammy worked as a dental assistant until the birth of her second child. She then decided to stay home with her family and grow Sam’s Produce into the thriving business that it is today.

Tammy married Dan Sam on May 6, 1989 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Arkansaw. This union blessed them with four children. Tammy enjoyed feeding her birds, especially hummingbirds and orioles, taking care of her hanging flower baskets, watching Hallmark movies and spending time with her family.

She is preceded in death by a son, Brett.
