Tammy Parker Linker, 53, passed away on Friday September 16, 2016 in Bedford, Texas. A true-Alabama girl, Tammy resided in Glen Rose, Texas with her husband, Mike, and son, Cole. After graduating from Geneva County High School (Hartford, AL) in 1981, Tammy attended the beloved University of Alabama and Troy State University where she earned degrees in Chemistry and Physical Science. Her school accomplishments led to a long-career in the chemistry field.
Tammy brought smiles to everyone with her contagious laugh and personality and with her genuine love for others. If you knew her, you loved her and will never forget her (especially during football season!). She was a giving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. Tammy always gushed over her family and proudly shared her love for The Alabama Crimson Tide with anyone she met.
Tammy will be missed greatly by her family and friends; however, we gain peace knowing that she loved Jesus Christ with all of her heart. Tammy knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that Jesus Christ was with her on the sunniest of days and the darkness of any storm.
