Tammy L. Woellner

March 10, 1971 ~ June 3, 2018 (age 47)

Tammy L. Woellner, age 47, of Wausau, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, June 3, 2018 at Ascension Good Samaritan Health Center in Merrill.  Tammy was born on March 10, 1971 to Mike and Kathryn (Bailey) Leder in Joliet, IL.  Her mother, Kathryn, survives.

Tammy attended and graduated from Merrill High School.  She had worked at Laura Lee’s (now Ballyhoos), All Aboard and Lincoln Wood until she was unable to work.  Tammy then became a stay at home grandma, spending time with her precious grandchildren, who were a priority in her life.  She also volunteered at the Open Door Shelter in Wausau.  Tammy was a giving and caring woman that would make you feel comfortable just talking to her.  She was also a great cook, making her specialties for her family and friends.  Tammy aimed to please people and was selfless by nature.  She was strong- willed, funny and had an engaging personality.  Recently, Tammy would enjoy spending time outdoors caring for her flowers in her yard.  She will be sadly missed.
