April 4, 1960 – April 29, 2016
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Tammi Rother, loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend to many. She was born in Edmonton, Alberta. In 1988 she married the love of her life, Bill Rother, and together they raised their three beautiful children. She enjoyed various activities, such as mountain biking, water skiing, scuba diving, hiking, motorsports and gardening. Tammi is survived by her husband Bill Rother; to whom she was married for 28 years, her daughters Tawny Rother, Lindsay Bartko and Angelica Moline, five brothers and sisters, five grandchildren and one Mexican mutt. She is predeceased by her father Max Merkley, mother Virginia Merkley and brother Brian Merkley. Tammi will be forever loved and missed by all those who knew her. There will be an “Afternoon in The Sun by The River” at The Farm to follow this summer.
In lieu of flowers, those wishing to do so, may make a donation in Tammi’s memory to the Ovarian Cancer Society of Canada (831 – 470 Granville Street, Vancouver, BC V6C 1V5). Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at www.MyAlternatives.ca. Arrangements entrusted to: ALTERNATIVES FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES ® Vernon 250-558-0866 & Armstrong 250-546-7237
