Tami Lynn Sturgeon

March 13, 1969 — March 24, 2024


Tami Lynn Sturgeon, 55, a beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend, passed away tragically and unexpectedly on March 24, 2024. 

 She was born in Ekalaka, Montana on March 13, 1969 to Gary and Kathleen Tobin. 

Tami grew up in Gillette, Wyoming and spent much of her early years with dear family friend Cathy Argue. Tami was always a natural caretaker. With love and devotion, she focused much of her time helping take care of her little sisters Teri and Tina. 

 Tami’s life truly began on March 13, 1993. On her 23rd birthday, she met the love of her life, John Sturgeon. The two were married on December 10, 1993. After many years of difficulty in starting a family, they welcomed their twins Calvin and Samantha on November 27, 2000. Tami was a devoted wife and mother. Many years were spent watching Calvin and Samantha play hockey. Tami never missed a practice or a game. 

 Tami worked for nearly 16 years as a paraprofessional at Conestoga Elementary School in Gillette. She enjoyed working with children and those in need, and loved sharing stories and photos of her family and dogs with her dear coworkers and friends. 

 Tami and John spent most of their time outdoors. She loved visiting the Davis Ranches in Camp Crook, SD. Many years they enjoyed snowmobiling, hunting, camping and riding the back roads. She loved planting flowers and feeding the neighborhood deer and antelope for the last 10 years. Tami was happiest outside spending time with the people she loved. Above all, she was so proud of her son Calvin, as he studies at the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine to become a physician, and her daughter Samantha, (in addition to) her son-in-law Philip, as they begin to build their life in Tennessee. 

 Tami is survived by her husband of 30 years, John Sturgeon, her son, Calvin Sturgeon, her daughter Samantha Henry and son-in-law Philip Henry. Her mother Kathleen Tobin and Lee Smith, her sisters Teri and Mike Atkin, Tina Thomas, Becky and Cliff Edwards, her sister-in- law Kathy Miles, lifelong friend Jennifer Davila, and her nieces and nephews: Tiyanna, Tevyn, Taylin, Chaycee, Carter, Turner and Brian - in addition to many other loved ones and friends. 

 Tami is preceded in death by her father, Gary Tobin, her uncle Jack Willson, and many other loved ones. 

 Tami will be missed deeply every day by all who love her.
