Tammy Lynn Sykes died Friday, January 19, 2018. She was born in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada on March 28, 1970 to Grant and Joan (Hendry) Norman. She was preceded in death by her father and a sister, Karen Flanigan. She is survived by her mother, her daughter, Bella Sykes, her son, Stephen Sykes, and her grandson, Marques.
Tammy’s family moved to Amarillo when she was eight. She graduated from Amarillo High School and later received her LVN certification from Amarillo College. Tammy loved her family and devoted her life and energies to their well-being. In her professional life she was known as a loving and hard-working caretaker.
Her family and friends often enjoyed her special dishes from the French-Canadian cuisine learned first-hand from her mother and grandmother. She embraced the role of a lifetime with her grandson, Marques – his “Nana”. Tammy was so many things to those who knew and loved her. Her honesty, humor, and compassion, will be missed.
Memorial services will be at 3:00 p.m., Saturday, February 3, 2018, at Boxwell Brothers Ivy Chapel. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.
