Born in Wilmington, DE on December 4, 1958, she was a daughter of the late James J. and Elizabeth (Berghof) Walker. Strong in her faith, Tammy was a proud member for many years of the Holy Family Catholic Church.

Above anything else, Tammy cherished the memories she got to make with her family.

Priestley, Sr.; children, Nicole N. Priestley-Magana and Michael A. Priestley, Jr.; grandsons, David M. Priestley, Michael A. Priestley III and Aaron Priestley; great-granddaughter, Baylee Priestley; siblings, Janice Reuling (Richard), Colleen Lenoir (Jack), Brian Walker and Shawn Walker; and many nieces and nephews.
