Tammy Terry, 58, of Grant, passed away on March 14, 2023, at UC Health in Denver, Colorado.
Tammy was born on June 6, 1964, in Colorado, to Kenneth Roger and Bonnie Jean (Smith) Green. She was a proud graduate of Perkins County High School.
Tammy began her career working at Woodstock Pizza, moving on to various convenience stores in Grant. She then dedicated her time to the Co-op before eventually taking a position as a 911 dispatcher for Perkins and, later, Keith County Communications.

Tammy's love for nature and the outdoors brought her immense happiness and contentment.
