Tammara Ann Taylor Gunn was born in Evansville, Indiana at Wellborn Baptist Hospital and attended Horton Watkins High School in Ladue, Missouri. She leaves a strong legacy of people because of her devoted work as a beautiful daughter to Phil Taylor and Patricia Harper Shingelton, a supportive wife to Douglas Gunn, a loving mother to Taylor Mariah Sims Hellman and Marissa Sims, and a wonderful grandmother to her eldest daughter’s 3 kids.
She loved color, fashion, cosmetology, crafting, and travel. She had a magical way about her. Such as the power to predict fashion trends before they began, taking simple things and combining them into something extraordinary, or comforting whole rooms with a familiar laugh or warm smile. Even strangers were drawn to the beauty of her love and spirit.
The very last place she visited before she departed this Earth was her favorite place, a butterfly garden. She spent the whole day feeding, watching, and releasing butterflies. To say that she loved butterflies was an understatement. She felt that they were holy, whimsical, and kept her close to God. They reminded her of the transformation she went through, and that she was redeemed and set free.
As all her family and loved ones have to say goodbye and can only be reminded of her laugh and smile through their fond memories; it will help to think of the butterflies. The butterfly is God’s way of reminding us that there is hope in grief, and when a caterpillar is no more, a butterfly exists in beauty and freedom. After all, what is death to a caterpillar, but life to butterfly? Tammy became a butterfly January 12, 2021 at 1:57 P.M.
