We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Blanchard Family Funeral Home
On the 14th of September 2021 Tamra Lea Krzykowski beloved wife, mother, sister, daughter and gaga passed away snuggled up at home surrounded by the legacy she helped build. She was strong beyond belief and fought triple negative breast cancer for 5 years before the cancer took her from this world. For someone so small in stature she could bring down mountains with her will alone. All through her life she never gave up hope and regardless of how hard things became, she always believed in a better tomorrow. Tamra and her husband Ben built an automotive and wrecker business from the ground up over the course of 35 years. She was an intelligent, powerful and generous person, but she loved children most of all. If you want to honor Tamra, look to the children in your life for it is them that she lived for. She helped raise all four of her siblings through the years even when she had three children of her own to look after. She gave everything to her kids, ensuring they never went without. Tamra was not someone you could easily forget and she touched the lives of so many people. An endless source of wisdom and sound advice, she was always available to help.
Tamra is survived by her husband Benjamin, children Jeremy, Brian and Mindona, mother Helen Marie Simmons and sisters Tiffany and Teisha Simmons, grandchildren, countless other relatives and friends. She is preceded in death by her father John Edward Craig, brothers, Willard (Buddy) and Dana Simmons, grandparents Sidney and Jennie Huntington and numerous dogs who were lucky enough to call her mom.
A celebration of life and potlatch will be held on Saturday September 25th 2021 from 2-6pm at 1950 Rogge Ave for family and friends who would like to gather to remember this amazing woman.
