Tammie Lynn Yaeger


Surrounded by family and friends, our little Tammie Lynn Yaeger, beloved wife, mother, sister and daughter, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 4, at her home in Bandera. She was born January 8, 1963 in Copley, Ohio, to Harold and Lilly Bennett.
Tammie bravely fought cancer for nearly a year and a half before her passing.
She moved to Marco Island, Florida at an early age, where she grew up with her four sisters and eventually met her husband, Harlow Alonzo "Lon" Yaeger III. Tammie gave birth to the light of the couple's lives, son Harlow Yaeger IV, in 1987. The Yaegers lived in several parts of the country before settling in their favorite state - Texas.
Tammie will be remembered for her kind spirit and genuine love for both people and animals. It was often said that she had never met a stranger, and the countless friends and loved ones she leaves behind prove that statement true.
Tammie is survived by her husband of 26 years, Lon Yaeger; and son Harlow of Austin. She is also survived by her father, Harold Bennett; and four sisters, Tonya Webb, Terina Cherry-Foster, Anne Feinman and Jamie Bakke, along with an extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and brothers-in-law.
A memorial service will be held at 11 am, Saturday, March 15, at Purple Sage Ranch in Bandera, located off Highway 16 South. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Cowboy Capital Pet Assistance League (CCPAL) or to the Arthur Nagel Community Clinic of Bandera County.
We are all better people for having breathed the same air as our precious angel, Tammie.
