Tammy was born on December 10, 1963 in Compton, CA to Carolyn Ramberg and Bill Beckum. She passed away on February 26, 2018 at her home in Tuthill, SD due to health issues.
Tammy was a very giving person, always putting things of others first. She loved to collect rocks, make jewelry, bead angels, and relax her in truck and observe the beautiful nature around her home. She grew up in Carlsbad, CA and would always talk about the beautiful sunsets on the ocean. She was raised by her mother, Carolyn Ramberg, and her adoptive father, Patrick Wedmore, in Carlsbad. She attended high school in Carlsbad and later on received her GED. She then went on and attended OceanSideBeautyCollege until she found out she was pregnant with her first daughter, Tiffany Rogers.
Tammy left California with her husband, Harlen Bettelyoun, shortly after her first son, Travis, was born. Tammy spent a lot of years in Tuthill, where she raised three children. She loved chatting with her friends over coffee and always talked about how dear her grandchildren were to her. She was involved with the Bennett County Community Action for several years and played an important role in the community. Tammy was a daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and sister and will be dearly missed by the many people who knew her.
Tammy is survived by spouse Harlen Vernon Bettelyoun Jr.; mother Carolyn Remburg; siblings Deborah Beckum-Hoornstra, Daniel Beckum, Woodrow Wedmore, and Jenny Wedmore-Bower; children Tiffany Rogers, Travis Bettelyoun, Heather (Bettelyoun) Peterson, and Harlen V. Bettelyoun III; grandmother Beth Tapp; grandchildren Christine Peterson, Abigail Bettelyoun, Xander Peterson, and Elizabeth Bettelyoun.
