She was a member of the Pine Grove Baptist Church where she was the church pianist from a young age until 2010. She also served as a church pianist at Inwood Baptist Church in Grand Ridge, Florida. Tammy retired from Florida State Hospital in Chattahoochee, Florida, in February 2013, after 37 years of service. She played competitive coed volleyball and played in several Florida Panhandle Tournaments on all levels. Two of her favorite tournaments were The Annual Florida State Hospital Staff Day and The Annual Greensboro Fourth of July Volleyball Tournament. She was a rodeo champion barrel racer, pole racer, and buddy pickup racer and was awarded many trophies. Tammy had many horses during her lifetime, but "Star Dust", a quarter horse that she trained herself, was her favorite horse of all time. Next to God, Tammy loved animals and had many dogs throughout her life. A few to mention include Bo, Snowflake, Tango, Petey, Lucky, Sarah, and Ralph. Tammy is survived by her mother Yvonne Hindman, of Quincy, Florida, her husband of 46 years, James W.
