Tamara (Tammy) Jaye Harchanko was born June 30, 1963 in San Diego, California, and died unexpectedly Oct. 16, 2021 in Mt. Pleasant, Utah.
Tammy cannot be described in just a few words. She was a woman of great passion. She lived life to the fullest, and did not let speed limit signs, laws or rules hold her back from doing what she loved. Her greatest desire was flying down the highway on her Harley Davidson. Speeding down the straightaway of whatever road she found herself on was her addiction, and she did it whenever she could without shame or regret.
If you would have asked Tammy how she wanted to leave this world, it would have been with her sister as two old biddies in an old house surrounded by her cats.
Tammy loved having a drink, making a drink and living life in the moment. She didn’t ask for much, but she gave all she had. She always had a way of making you feel loved and important. Tammy knew what you needed, even if sometimes you didn’t. Everyone in her life mattered, and she did everything in her power to make others feel valued and needed.
Tammy left behind a son, Alex Smith, whom she loved more than life itself; a loving sister, Neven Hannon; and her best friend, Veronica Pinkerton. She was not only a mother, a sister, an aunt, a niece and a cousin, but also a friend to many.
Tammy is gone from this world, but her life is not over. She is in heaven with no speed limit signs or red lights holding her back.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, Nov. 4, 2021 at 4 p.m. at the Ephraim Church of the Bible (380 South 400 East, Ephraim).
