She also especially loved Halloween.  She is survived by her mother Barbara Reitz; children Travis (Mindy) Reitz, Dustin (Janna) Smith, Nichole Ryff-Pitts, Joshua (Carrie) Ryff, Matthew (Tara) Ryff and Makayla Forichette; 20 grandchildren; her siblings Rob ( Julie) Reitz, Ron (Brenda) Reitz, Crissy (Chad) Cook, Cory ( Jenn) Reitz and Heidi (Billy) Bush and multiple nieces and nephews.  Tammy passed away on October 12, 2020 at Herington Municipal Hospital.  She is preceded in death by her father Richard.  A private family Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.  Yazel-Megli Funeral Home, Herington is serving the family.  Memorial contributions in Tammy's name may be directed to Dickinson County Hospice.  Please sign her online guestbook and leave a memory of Tammy at www.ymzfh.com.
