September 29, 1965 - March 22, 2021
Tammy Hale, age 55, of Montrose passed away early Monday morning, March 22, 2021, following a sudden illness.
Tammy was born September 29, 1965 in Delta, Colorado to Don and Detra Gordon. She graduated from Montrose High School in 1984, developing a love for the arts. She went on to study fashion design and pattern-making at the Art Institute in San Francisco.
Tammy loved traveling and enjoyed nature-both flora and fauna. She continually grew her skills and explored many different mediums of art, including painting, spinning and weaving natural textiles, jewelry making, sewing, quilting and other homestead crafts. She worked as a graphic artist at Habitat (clothing) Inc. She later owned a studio where she created custom draperies, window and other soft coverings. Her work was featured in Architectural Digest. Throughout her life, she was an avid reader and researcher.
She met the love of her life, Steve Hale, and they were married March 4, 2006, and lived on the family ranch. Tammy enjoyed the wildlife, including deer and elk, bear, foxes, wild turkeys and all small animals, as well as watching the baby calves being born in the spring. She also loved tending her flower and vegetable gardens.
Later on, Tammy and Steve joined the Montrose Farmers Market, which further allowed her to showcase her talents.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Detra Gordon; her Aunts, Thelma Mae Davis of Colorado Springs and Georgia Mae Wilkie, along with several cousins.
She is survived by her loving husband, Steve Hale; her father, Donald Gordon; her aunt, Phyllis (Edwin) Reeder and families; a brother; nephews: James Gordon, Robert (Sydnee) Gordon and family and niece, Sheila (Nathan) Schneider and family; three step-children: Caleen Hale, Rebecca (Scott) Walker and Robert Hale, along with three grandchildren; sister-in-law, Elaine Hale (Mike) Jones; and her life- long friend, Virginia Brown.
Funeral services will be held Saturday March 27, 2021, at 11 a.m., at Crossroads Victory Church. Burial will immediately follow at Grand View Cemetery.
