Tammie Dianne Finger
Tammie Dianne (Sanders) Finger, 60, of McAlester, passed this life peacefully, on Sunday, September 15, 2019, at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, after boldly and courageously battling cancer.
Tammie was the youngest of five siblings born to James and Rosa Lee Sanders in San Diego California, on August 4, 1959.
Tammie began singing at the age of three, belting out songs and performing for the family. She loved to sing and perform and grew into a beautiful, talented woman.
She soon began vocal music lessons and developed an amazing voice, entering several pageants and winning many talent competitions. In high school, she played Mother Abbess, the nun, in the "Sound of Music" and beautifully sang "Climb Every Mountain". She was blessed with the gift of singing and made it look easy.
Tammie married Joe Finger on October 20, 1995, in McAlester.
She will be remembered for her beautiful voice, her sense of humor, and love of family and friends. She was selfless, always putting others above herself.
Tammie's sweet and loving nature will remain with us, reflected through her daughter, Mary, whom she loved dearly. Her family and many friends will miss her, as everyone loved her.
Tammie is survived by her husband, Joe Finger, of the home, and daughter, Mary Finger, of McAlester; sister, Sandy Raburn, of Madill, and Deena Morton, of Broken Arrow, and several nieces and nephews.
