Tammy Jo Peterson

Tammy Jo Peterson, age 56, peacefully passed to her eternal home on Monday, June 15, 2020 under the care of the staff at St. Rose Care Center in LaMoure, ND, and CHI Hospice.

Tammy Peterson was born on July 9, 1963, to Christ and Verna (Park) Vande Hoven in Carrington, ND. She attended elementary school in Carrington and finished her high school years in New Rockford, ND and was a graduate of the Central High School Class of 1983. After her graduation, Tammy moved to Jamestown where she held various jobs until her Parkinson’s no longer allowed her to do so.

On September 22, 1988, she married Clifford Peterson; together they shared the pure joy in the birth of their son, Clifford Jr.

Tammy will be remembered for her spunky demeanor and always wanting to tell or hear a good joke, her zest for competition whether it be at Norwegian golf, Kings in the Corner, Bingo or Trouble, her continued desire to never give up on believing that someday she would be well enough to return home, along with her true compassion for her family and friends.

A sincere thank you to the staff at St. Rose Care Facility. Tammy entered there in April 2017 with sadness in her heart and a longing to return home. You welcomed her into your gentle and compassionate home, treated her with respect and filled her life with humor and laughter, all while sharing your families with her as well. Your little “Walmart greeter” and “hall monitor” truly blossomed under your care and friendship. Hope her memories left you with laughter in your hearts and a smile on your faces.

Tammy is survived by her husband, Cliff (Jamestown, ND); son, Clifford Jr. (Valley City, ND); siblings, Roger (Ann) Vande Hoven, Larry (Belinda) Vande Hoven, Terry (Dora) Vande Hoven, Kristy (Barney) Heitkamp, Chuck Vande Hoven, Stacey (Michael) Gussiaas and Kerri Heid; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and aunts.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Alice Huling; brother, Dale Vande Hoven; nephew, Travis Vande Hoven and five infant brothers.

Her Visitation will be Friday, June 19, 2020, 9:00AM – 3:00PM at Evans Funeral Home.

A Funeral Service for family and close friends will be Friday, June 19, 2020, at 3:00PM in Evans Funeral Home, Carrington.
