Tammy Lynn
Agnew

Tammy’s family and friends will gather to remember her on Friday, November 18th, 2022 at Banner Church, 1500 S. West Lane in New Berlin beginning at 4:00 PM and concluding with a Celebration of Life Service at 6:00 PM.  In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family are greatly appreciated.

Tammy Lynn Agnew (nee Husom) was called by God to Eternal Life on November 11, 2022, age 55 years.

Beloved wife of Thomas Agnew. Treasured mother of Evan (Adam) Kruschke and Jordan (Sylvester Gray III) Wachowiak who she shared with Corey Wachowiak.  Loving daughter of Denise (the late Bruce) Anderson. Adored sister of Tracy (Tom LaChance) Husom, Kymberly (Nick) Gierach, Brandon (Rachelle) Anderson. Caring daughter-in-law of Julie Wu. Cherished step-mother of Rochelle (Justin) Halstead, Erica (Brennon) Manske, and Thomas Agnew IV. Dear Sister-In-Law of Israel (Barbara Barrey) Malachi, Paul (Rachel) King, and Philip (Terri) Agnew. Proud grandmother of Parker and Ellie Kruschke, Leona Gray, Wesley and Henry Halstead, and Violet and Iola Manske. Further survived by loved aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, cousins, and many dear friends.

As a child, Tammy attended Mount Olive Lutheran School, and went on to graduate from Juneau High School in 1985. She made many strong friendships from her time working at Sentry Foods, St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Muskego, Starbucks, and Children’s Hospital. She was a long-time member of St. Paul’s and Banner Church.

Tammy loved being a homemaker. She always made sure to keep a spotless home, loved to keep up with the latest interior design trends from her “instagram ladies,” and enjoyed cooking delicious meals for her family.  She also loved to make beautiful things such as watercolor paintings or taking an old piece of furniture and making it new again.

She loved her family more than anything, and was especially good at spoiling her kids and grandkids. She never forgot a birthday, and was always willing to help whenever someone needed it (or even when they didn’t). She loved going to listen to live music with her husband, Tom, and enjoyed spending time with her sisters and girlfriends. She was a strong woman of faith, and dedicated lots of her time to the church. No matter what life threw at her, she always trusted God.

Words that come to mind when thinking of Tammy are optimistic, caring, warm, welcoming, generous, fun-loving, silly, and faithful. Tammy touched so many lives, and anyone that knew her could see how special she was.

We welcome all those who knew and loved Tammy to come share fond memories of her as we celebrate her life.

    My family and I had the luck of sitting with Tammy and Tom at my niece’s wedding (Morgan and Bryce Coppersmith) Morgan and Bryce: Evan’s and Adam’s dear friend from childhood and today. We hit it off talking about our love for family and how fun it was that their granddaughter and our daughter shared a name, Parker, and both stood up as flowers girls in the wedding. She spoke highly of her family and the love she shared with them and the joy she felt that they were so close by. We could tell that she had a very bright spirit and a tender heart after one meeting. Many condolences. Kate, Eric, Parker and Wesley Moore. (Morgan Coppersmith’s Aunt and Uncle and cousins).

    Tammy was a sweet soul, I felt this about her the first time we met. She had a warm and inviting smile that put you immediately at ease. Taken way to soon from her family and friends but I know she now sits in a place of peace and beauty and love. Every time you say her name or share a story Tammy will be with all of you only as far away as in your hearts. My deepest sympathy for all of her family.

    This is so sad to see……she is so young. I had the honor of being served by her smiling face, every day at Starbucks on my way to work at Hiller Ford in Franklin. I hated the car biz, and she would always tease me about it…..made my day! We also had St.Paul’s Lutheran church in common. Sorry for your loss of his incredible lady.
