TWIN FALLS | Tammy Lee Miller Lashley, 41, of Twin Falls, ID, passed away on Wednesday, February 10, 2016 at home.
Tammy (AB) was born on April 4th, 1974 at Great Falls, MT, to Larry Wayne Miller and Bonnie Rae Miller. She graduated from Mountain Home High School in 1993, and married her beloved husband Brad Lashley in Boise, Idaho during 2006. In the employment department, Tammy liked to try new things from making pizza at "Little Caesars" to being the Office Manager at several different companies. Although, she was not in the military she experienced the travel associated with a father that served his country. As a 'Military Brat' she lived in Montana, South Dakota, Belgium, Germany and Idaho.
Her true passion was taking care of people. She loved making dream catchers and experimenting with different hairstyles. Every month she could be found cutting, trimming or coloring her hair. She loved children and animals. Her favorite animals were horses, owls, and her grumpy cat lil girl, AKA Grandma. She LOVED to shop and follow the latest trends. Her favorite activities included exercising, watching Horror movies with her husband, and taking walks outside. She enjoyed her tattoos and piercing's and always sent her sister, Kari, pictures of her latest tattoo. She was extremely proud of the tributes to her family through her body art. Most of all, she loved her family. She loved spending time with her husband and nieces and nephews, and they adored her in return.
Tammy was reliable and true to her word. She was always available to help others, especially her friends and family. She had a true gift for sensing the feelings of others around her and was a counselor and friend, offering a kind word and her caring advice. She helped a great deal of people through the struggles in life. Tammy's greatest attribute was her propensity for taking care of others.
Tammy had a way with animals. Her calming nature would bring wild animals to eat from her hands. In addition to her kind spirit, one of her most profound character traits was her neatness. A trait she inherited from her father, she spent a great deal of time keeping things in order and even going as far to help clean her friend's home when she was invited. If she came over for dinner; she'd be in the kitchen helping to clean up the mess. She embraced her Native American heritage, seeking knowledge of her heritage and ancient traditions. She dedicated a wall to the native artifacts that had meaning to her and even took up the ancient art of weaving dream catchers.
