Tamara was the manager of Back to the Basics in Los Lunas from 2000-2017 and touched many lives during this time. Tamara was a person who would give her last dollar and the shirt off her back to a stranger if she felt they needed it more than she did. Tamara was always eager and willing to help people in any way she could.
Tamara was known as a brave, strong, outgoing, and enthusiastic woman who was always making jokes and having fun. She was the kind of person who could walk into a room full of strangers and make friends with everyone she met. She loved to be with her family and beamed with pride when she talked about her children and grandchildren. The legacy of Tamara's liveliness, selflessness, and courageousness will live on in her children and grandchildren. Tamara would do anything for her family and friends. She was well-known and respected in the community to which she dedicated her life and will be greatly missed.
