Tamra was born November 18th, 1964 in Codington County, South Dakota to Lorraine Macht and Vernon Wagner. Tamra moved with her family to Ontario, California where her mother met a married Edward Vasquez. Tamra married M. Scott Murphy and had two children, Colton M. Murphy and Travis W. Murphy. Tamra and Scott Separated, and Tamra remained to be a single mother untill her boys became of age. In her spare time, Tamra enjoyed drawing and coloring her art, watching movies, and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Tamra had a close relationship with her two sons, and an amazing relationship with her grandchildren. Tamra loved having “Grandma Days” with the kids, who endearingly called her “Nana Lou”.
She is survived by her two sisters - Alex and Roxanne, one brother - Mike, and her two sons - Colton and Travis, and her grandchildren – Boston and Marleigh. Tamra joins her parents, and her brother Terry in Heaven. In her final moments, her sister, two sons and close friends were with her. She passed peacefully.
In this time, I ask you to recite the Lord’s Prayer, in her memory as this was her favorite prayer.
