Tammy Sue (Woods) Butler, age 57, of Celina, passed away on Monday, July 25, 2022, at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton.
She was born October 12, 1964, in Celina, to Gerald Arthur "Buss" & Vina (Hicks) Woods. Her father preceded her in death on August 17, 2007, and her mother survives in Celina.
Tammy is survived by her husband, Michael Butler. Mike and Tammy met through a dating website and agreed to meet for the first time at Subway in Celina. Mike, who was from Delphos, and not familiar with Celina, did not realize there were two Subway locations in Celina. He went to the Market Street Subway and Tammy was at the Walmart Subway. Each thought they had been "stood up" by the other. But they contacted each other by phone and met up. After dating for a few years, they were married on October 19, 2020.
Tammy leaves behind her children, Ashley Steinke and Joey Rider of Celina and three grandchildren: Shaun, Harmony, and Anthony Steinke.
Also surviving are her brothers: John (Marisa) Woods and Edward Woods of Celina, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, extended family and her therapy dog, Jasmine.
Tammy was a 1984 graduate of Celina High School. She retired after working many years at the Huffy Bicycle Plant and as a cook at Behm's Restaurant.
Favorite activities were spending time with her grandkids and decorating.
Calling will be held at W.H. Dick & Sons-Hellwarth Funeral Home in Celina, on Thursday, July 28, from 12:00 Noon to 2:00 and 3:00 to 6:00 p.m., with the Funeral Service to follow, beginning at 6:00. Ronnie Hagaman will officiate.
