Theresa J. Tammaro, 84, of Becida, MN died Monday, May 13, 2019 at her granddaughter’s home in Laporte.
She was born on September 29, 1934 in Moose Lake, MN the daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth (Adamac) Jurek. She married Richard Tammaro on December 8, 1956 in Virginia, MN. For those who know Terry, knew how much she loved and adored her family. They meant the world to her. She enjoyed spending time at home being waited on hand and foot by dad and Joe, doing crosswords, word search, and watching TV, and loving on the cat’s and dogs, kids, grand kids or whoever happened to show up that day. If you were fortunate enough to have met her, you received a hug when you met, and a hug when you said goodbye, that’s just how she was, and pretty much how most everyone will remember her. We as a family knew the purest form of love which she gave unconditionally, always giving, and expecting nothing in return, so she was never disappointed. She spent her final days at home surrounded by Amanda and her family who so graciously kept around the clock vigil, and Dad, who remained steadfast every minute by her side, until our Lord needed another saint whom he came and hand picked, and brought home to be with him. She will always remain, and be held in the highest regard for the love she unselfishly gave, to those who were blessed to have known her. She will be so greatly missed.
She is survived by her husband, Richard Tammaro of 62 years; 4 sons, Michael (Dorothy) Tammaro, Scott (Annette) Tammaro, Bruce Tammaro, and Joe Tammaro; 11 grandchildren and great grandchildren; sister Marcella Holms, and life long friend of 70 years, Greta Denny.
She was preceded in death by her parents, son Ricky, daughter-in-law, Susan Tammaro and her sisters and brothers.
