I never really knew your beloved Tammy. However, she participated in my meditation circle and invited me to her fb messenger. I was grateful for the opportunity to get to know her. She is deeply loved by a lot of people. In April just after we lost Aileen I was in the hospital with covid pneumonia, Tammy sent me a persons message. Encouraging me and sending out prayers. I was deeply touched.
May you all find comfort in one another and keep her spirit alive for Ira and the others yet to come.

I met Tammy through work and have the honour of calling her my friend. She was one of the strongest smartest Warriors that I have ever met. To be honest, I was a little bit scared of her and would often tell her that haha. I'll always remember her as funny, smart, caring and compassionate. I've had some dark times in my life and she always there for me.

She loved you guys so much and was very proud of all of her kids and grandson. Her love for her family was very much seen and felt. Thank you for sharing her with us. My deepest condolences to you all, she will be greatly missed. I'll keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have enjoyed working with Tammy for many years. She showed the utmost skill and dedication in doing her work. I had one extremely important file with her that would never have been completed without Tammy going the extra distance. In fact,there are very few people in Canada who know their way around reserve land titles as well as Tammy. She was an expert in her field. We had some great (and long) chats over the years that I will never forget. The love she had for her family was always at the forefront. She will be missed.

Gary I read the news of Tammy’s passing. My heart is broken. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Family and friends pass and this is a normal process of life but there are some who are much harder to stop missing. I can count on one hand who those people are in my life and Tammy is one of them. She felt like a long time friend and family from the minute I met her at the genealogy group quite some time ago. A true friendship grew from that minute forward. We had made plans to meet for Indian taco when the province loosened up and now I will have a hard time doing that on my own for the first time. I just want to tell you the impact that Tammy had on me along with Renee and Mr. Monture in all of the knowledge and love they shared with me in their welcoming way while I was working on my family history. She was so proud of her family. Know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Kathy

Heartfelt condolences to the family. Tammy was a warrior and admired and loved by so many. She touched the lives of countless people through her yers at INAC as well as in her personal life. She could make you laugh with just a comment or funny anecdote and she could make one shiver with one stern look. Thanks to Tammy my experience at the INAC office was entertaining and she showed me the ropes eg. If taking an unauthorized smoke break, ALWAYS carry a clipboard or folder so you wouldn't draw suspicion. Her laugh was contagious and her smile could light up a room. I will miss our chats for sure. May you rest in peace my dear cousin.

My sincerest condolences to Tammy's family, and her friends. For many years, I worked with Tammy on land-related files. Without a doubt, she was a stalwart employee, a never-ending supporter of doing a good job, but most of all a caring mother and wife who loved her family. Tammy was always bubbly and easy to talk to. She will be missed and we can take comfort knowing that she is now resting peacefully…

My thoughts are with Tammy's family and friends. When I started working at ISC I worked on so many land files in records and Tammy was always there with the answer when I needed it. She will be missed. I'm glad our paths crossed even just for that time.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of this amazing woman. Tam and I worked together for 11 years at INAC and shared some great laughs. Even through her pain, she continued to post on the genealogy site to bring families together and share history of our Nations. Tam had great knowledge of many things but her greatest joy in life was her family and of course, her grandson Ira. She always listened to my show and requested Pop-A-Top for Auntie Pat. The sorrow we feel here is matched by the rejoicing in the Heavens reuniting with her loved ones. I love you Tam and I hope that your family takes solace in the fact that you were so loved in this world by so many people.

Gare and family,

A very sad day upon hearing of the loss of Tam C., a great friend and an awesome neighbor, always keeping an eye out for things that didn't seem quite right on Mohawk Road. Most times I would stop by for a quick minute but it usually turned into a half hour or more, with lots of laughs and catching up on the latest news. She possessed a wealth of information and helped with tracing our family's roots. When we had our beagle pup he liked spending time over there and she welcomed him into her home to hang out with her pup. Fly high with the eagles Tam, you will be missed by everyone who knows you and loves you.

With deepest sympathy. Tammy was amazing & kept in good spirits throughout her illness. She was a true warrior and never complained. I remember all of the work she did on the Mush Hole gatherings & the old photos she was collecting. She helped many people. I take solace knowing she’s with her Father - I know she took his crossing very hard & really missed him. She is missed but never forgotten. Lotsa love to the family.
