Tamara Jean Brown, lovingly known as “TT” by many of her nieces and nephews, reunited in heaven with so many loved ones on June 7th, 2021 at the age of 48. She was born on July 19th, 1972 in Great Falls, Montana where she grew up and graduated from CM Russell High School in 1990. After high school, she attended Miles Community College, Miles City, Montana and Dickinson State University, Dickinson, ND. where she received her degree in Accounting. She was born to the late Wallace and Patricia “Babe” Remsen and grew up with five close siblings. Tammy married the love of her life, Brent Brown, in 2000. Together, they had two children, a son, Dillon and a daughter, Megan. She was preceded in death by her father in 1993, her sister Brenda in 2003, her brother in law Daniel Baker in 2020 and just recently her mother in May of 2021.
Tammy had a unique gift of spreading happiness wherever she was and whomever she was with. It did not matter if she knew someone for her entire life or simply 5 minutes. Her glorious smile and infectious laugh would light up any room. She had a beautiful ability to make connections with many people throughout her life. Tammy loved deeply and was never afraid to show it. Between her whistles, loud cheers, and sloppy kisses, she never went unnoticed and we are all so thankful for that. She showed so many of us what it meant to love unconditionally and really did not care about who she embarrassed. Her love was always more important than impressions or appearances.
Tammy’s love went beyond her love for people. She also had a fondness for animals, especially dogs. She even nicknamed herself, “The Dog Whisperer”, as she always thought she had a connection with them as well. Besides spending time with family and friends , Tammy loved spending hours decorating especially for holidays. She also loved planting flowers and her time at the lake. She always reminded us that our dad and sister were with us and that they would send us signs in the form of white feathers. Whenever we find a white feather, we will think of you together with your family in heaven shining down upon us.
Tammy is survived by her husband Brent, her son, Dillon, her daughter, Megan, her mother and father-in-law Sharon and Calvin Brown, her brother-in-law Jeffrey Baker and his wife Lisa, her brother Randy Remsen and his wife Rhonda, and her sisters, Rhonda Taylor and husband Todd, Sandy Bush and her husband Chuck, and her twin sister (favorite sister) Pam Schelfhout and husband Francis. She was also adored by countless nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles.
Please join us to celebrate her life Saturday, June 12th at the Stevenson Funeral Home, Dickinson, ND. at 10 am. In honor of the beautiful person Tammy was we are asking donations be made to her children, a mental health organization in your area or plant a tree in her memory. There is no darkness that can eliminate the light that will always shine within her. When you remember Tammy, remember the laughter, remember the joy, but most of all keep her light shining forever. Wild Thing, you will always make our hearts sing.
