   Tammy worked as a teacher assistant and custodian for the Chariho school system for 33 years. She had such compassion and love for all her coworkers and students. Along being a hardworking individual, during her free time she enjoyed her DIY home projects, and scoring a good deal at the thrift shops. She loved being outside in the fresh air doing yard work and  enjoying an evening stroll at her favorite place, the beach. If you know Tammy Pride, you would know how much she loved her Cadbury eggs during Easter and her New England clam cakes and chowder in the summer.  She beamed with such positivity and happiness, and always kept you laughing and smiling. “Family First”  and “Text me when you're home” were her most said phrases as love and family were what was most important to her.
