Tamarra A. “Tammy” Plante, 37, Watertown

WATERTOWN, NY —  Calling hours for Tamarra A. “Tammy” Plante will be 1 to 3 p.m. Friday, June 25, at the Reed & Benoit Funeral Home, Watertown. The funeral service will precede the calling hours at 3:00 p.m. which will include the eulogy service given by Pastors Myron Jamerson (The Rock Church) and Pastor Jeffrey Smith (The First Baptist Church). Burial will take place at a date and time convenient to her family.

Tamarra died unexpectedly on June 15 due to the use of Heroin, a problem that has plagued our little city here in the north country. No one is immune to its effects on human life.

Tamara Anne-Marie was born Feb. 22, 1984, at the House of The Good Samaritan hospital in Watertown. She was educated in the Watertown City School District and received her GED.

She worked at many places in Watertown, including her Nana’s fruit stand on the Wednesday’s farmers market and selling flowers on Water St. Tammy also spent many hours volunteering her time to the New Zoo in 92’ for her uncle Dr. David Plante, helping her Nana and her Uncle Joe with the Tropical Rainforest Outreach Program, and her mom, at the Arsenal St. Cemetery.

Tammy had been a loving, vivacious spirit of a woman. She did things her way or it was the highway. Many times she would stand up for the lowly and never hesitated to speak her mind.

She is survived by her parents, Kathy Plante-Hunt and Scott Hunt; her grandfathers, Joseph Plante and John Hunt, Watertown; a brother, Daniel J. Hunt, Chaumont; a sister, Katy M. (Plante) Henry, Dallas, Texas; and her four children, Xavier, Watertown, Brooklyn, Shy, and Kataya, Adams. She is also survived by four uncles, Joe, David (Teresa Dewey), Christopher, Timothy (Kathy); an aunt, Kimberlee Trainham, Daytona Beach, Fla.; and many cousins, Matthew, Tasha, Stacey, Ariel, Sarah and Emily Plante, Heather and Ryan Trainham.

She will be especially missed by her Nana, Kay Plante.

We will miss her sassy personality, her choice in music, her flair for style, her artistic nature in finding beauty from nothing.
