Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
IN LOVING MEMORY OF:
Tammy Lynn Anderson:
1/28/1963 – 2/1/2018
Loving Mother, Daughter, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Great Aunt, and Friend.
Family was important to Tammy, and more than anything, she loved her children and grandchildren.
She was also a lover of everything nature has to offer, and one who’s simple insight should be an inspiration for us all. Tammy loved going to Squaw Creek and watching Bald Eagles in the winter and taking walks at Burr Oak Woods. She loved camping and going to the lake with family and friends. She would often go to Lake Jacomo to pick up trash and feed carrots to the buffalo and elk. She loved anything and everything related to Native American history and culture. She also loved cats, even fostering them for awhile.
She had a great sense of humor and a “rapid fire” laugh that could catch one off guard, but quickly became infectious..
She is survived by her children Eric Anderson and grandson Aiden of Gladstone, Missouri, Alyssa Anderson and granddaughters Lanie and Ava, and grandson Vincent, of Blue Springs, Missouri. She lovingly referred to her children as her, “Greatest gifts” and “The best thing that ever happened to her.”
She is also survived by her parents John and Marie Doss of Raytown, Missouri, who she came to live with and lovingly cared for, for the last nine years.
She is survived by her five siblings Michelle Steelman, Brad Casterline, Melinda Harms (brother-in-law Richie Harms), Lori Cochrane and Wes Doss (sister-in-law Kathy Doss). She leaves 12 nieces and nephews and 18 great nieces and nephews. She also left behind two special cats who found new homes; one with her son Eric and one with Lacy Dehnert, who Tammy referred to as her “adopted daughter”.
Her family is especially proud that Tammy was a “Gift of Life DONOR” through the Midwest Transplant Network, and as far as we know, two people received a kidney from her. As one cousin put it, “What a beautiful way to leave for heaven by giving the gift of life.”
Donations can be made in Tammy’s name to Great Plains SPCA or Salvation Army.
Donations can also be made in Tammy’s name to any personal favorite charity you may support that helps humans, the earth, or animals.
