Tammy McQuerry Burk, 57 of Altoona passed away on November 21, 2019.
Born May 7, 1962 to Karol and Harold Larsen in Des Moines.
First and foremost, in Tammy’s life was her family. She adored them and loved spending time with them any chance she could. She enjoyed shopping, traveling to beautiful places and summertime.
Especially the beach. Tammy loved the sunshine. If it was laying out or swimming she was out there.
Tammy worked for Unity Point for over 25 years. She loved her career and was very good at it. Tammy’s coworkers were important to her. They were her second family.
She enjoyed going to work every day.
Tammy is preceded in death by her father Harold and brother Michael.
Those left to cherish her memory are her spouse of 25 plus years Ray Burk; mother Karol Larsen; sister Pam Mally; daughters Erica and Erin McQuerry. Grandchildren Kaliyah, Trevyn, Landyn, Tom Jr., Mikayla, Cody, Isaac, Evan; great grandson Kayson; nephew Jeremy (Amanda) Mally; great nieces Chyler and Madison; Mother in law Mary Lou Burk; step sons Scott (Tina) and Tom. Tammy is also survived by many friends who will miss her dearly.
