Tammy Reeve - 1964-2014


Kasilof resident Tammy Reeve, 49, passed away on April 12, 2014.

She was born Sept. 1, 1964 in Great Falls, Mont. to the late Phillip H. Bruce and Sharon E. Ryan of Anchorage. Tammy moved to Alaska at age four during her father's service in the Air Force they moved around the state until she was 13 years old settling on the Kenai Peninsula, and eventually called Kasilof her home.

Tammy spent her life advocating for people who experienced mental illness and developmental disabilities. She relentlessly fought for the rights of others. She held a PhD in psychology, master's in mental health, bachelor's in psychology, and an associate's degree in paralegal.

Aside from her continuous drive to make herself more educated, she was a very free spirit and willing to put others interests above her own, she was an amazing friend to all those that were lucky to hold that title. Tammy was known for the love she had for her family, nature and animals. She would ride down to the beach on her four-wheeler to collect shells, rocks and trinkets. She found beauty in all aspects of life, including the people she touched. She was an amazing mother and grandmother and will be dearly missed by us all.

She is survived by her longtime companion of 27 years Daniel (J.R.) Poissant; mother Sharon E. Ryan; sister-in-law, Dawn Poissant; brother-in-law, William Cox; mother-in-law, Launie Poissant; her children Sarah Reeve (Daniel Cooper), Shaun Reeve, Maria Reeve (Angel Mendoza); her sister, Erika Bruce and her brother, Phillip H. Bruce II (Gary-Ann); and her grandchildren, Alaura, Lukas, Nathan and Izzabella; and lifetime friends, Darrel Mason and Steve Haugstad, Karl Gattenby and too many other close friends to list.

Donations can be sent to Wells Fargo in Soldotna, for the Tammy Reeve family.

Funeral services were held April at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Seward.

Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
