Tammy Jo Kerby, 65, of Beach City, entered eternal rest on January 28, 2024, in Beach City, Ohio. She was surrounded by her loving family.
She was a graduate of Dover High School with the class of 1977. Tammy led a remarkable life that touched the hearts of many. She devoted herself to caring for others as a home health aide, bringing comfort and compassion to those she served. Of all her clients, one held a special place in her heart - Walter. Tammy cherished the time she spent with him and cared for him as if he were family.
What truly defined Tammy was her role as an adoptive mother to many. She embraced the joys and challenges of motherhood with open arms and showered her children and their friends with love and support throughout their lives. The selflessness and unwavering care she consistently displayed will forever be remembered.
Outside of her caregiving responsibilities, Tammy found solace in various hobbies and interests that brought joy to her life. She had an adventurous spirit and loved the exhilaration of riding Harley Davidsons on open roads. Dancing was another passion that allowed her to express herself freely while embracing the rhythm of life. Music flowed through her veins like a heartbeat, providing comfort during both happy and challenging times.
