Share Obituary!

Tammy Lee (Gingrich) Adams, 62, of Enola, Pennsylvania, passed away on Saturday, May 18, 2024, at Hershey Medical Center surrounded by her loving family.  

She was born in Harrisburg, PA, to parents Patricia and David Gingrich Sr.  Tammy graduated from East Pennsboro Area High School, class of 1979.  Prior to her retirement in 2019, she dedicated over 35 years of Federal service to the Department of the Navy as a civilian contract specialist.  Upon retirement, Tammy continued to be the ultimate Mimi, spending her days picking berries, visiting the farm, and having pool days and sleepovers with her granddaughters.

Tammy enjoyed spending time at the Enola Sportsmen’s Club, where she was active in the Ladies Auxiliary.  Never on time for anything, she was always on “Tammy Time”.   She loved traveling, people watching, fall festivals, PB&Js from Whistle Stop and road trips with her girl gang.   

In April 2022, Tammy was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.  She courageously fought through 12 rounds of chemo and radiation and was blessed with a Whipple operation in February 2023.   Since then, she made memories with trips to the beach, State College, and Disney World.  She was a Whipple Warrior and remained No Evidence of Disease upon her too-soon death, leaving her family and friends heartbroken. 

Tammy is survived by her father David Gingrich Sr. of Enola, and her daughter Jessica McFarland (Cliff) of Mechanicsburg, PA; her granddaughters Anna and Josephine; her brother David Gingrich Jr. (Tina) of Enola, PA; her sister Tracy Reed (Robert) of Dillsburg, PA; many nieces and nephews including  Angie (Charlie), Nick and Nathan Payne; Amy (Dylan), Dylan Jr, and Taylor Buckwalter; Christopher (Jackie), Kai and Lani Gingrich; Leah Gingrich; Tommy and Angel Reed.

She was preceded in death by her mother Patricia Gingrich, and her sister Terri (Gingrich) Weaver.  

In honor of Tammy’s passing, she would appreciate any remembrances and donations be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

Services will be held Thursday, July 18, 2024, at 11:00 AM at Summerdale United Methodist Church located at 203 Second Street, Summerdale, PA 17093.  Visitation will be 10:00am-11:00am prior to the service.

The Sullivan Funeral Home is honored to serve the Adams family.

  1. Tammy’s family was friends with our family. Sometimes we would be invited to swim in their pool. We weren’t close over the years but every time I’d see her she had a smile on her face. She was a beautiful soul.

  2. Tammy was a sweet, kind lady. I went to high school with her and played softball with her. She was the best third baseman I ever knew. She could grab a line drive down third and whip it over to first quicker than anyone else. So many great memories with her. I just loved her laugh and smile. May God give comfort to Jessie and her whole family. She will be missed but a never forgotten!

  3. Tammy was a beautiful friend who I’ll miss forever! We had way too much in common, and I will forever be grateful for knowing her.! ♥️💔

  4. Heaven has a new beautiful angel.

  6. Tammy and I were good friends in High School and did a lot of stuff. The last I saw her was at our 30th High School reunion. She had the greatest personality and a winning smile. I will always remember her. Deepest Sympathy to the remaining family

  7. Tammy was such a lovely person. She was so gently and caring. Played many years of softball with her and created great memories. God bless to all and my deepest sympathy

  8. Tammy was my Team Lead at DLA Maritime Mechanicsburg and we got to know each other over the years until she retired. When I had to have outpatient procedure, she drove me to and from the hospital and stayed with me while I waited for the procedure to begin.. I’m sad to say, we did not keep in touch as much as we should have after she retired. My heartfelt condolences to the family. Tammy was an awesome person who would talk non-stop about her family and how proud she was of her daughter. My thoughts are with you.

  9. She was a good friend!!! That will be missed, prayers sent from my family to hers!!!Tammy was always happy and quite girl growing up she will be missed!!!

  10. Tammy was always one of the kindest, sweetest, and just nice people I have ever known. We didn’t see each other as much as we should have but I know what a loss she is to her family. My deepest condolences to all who loved her.

  11. I met Tammy, in 7th grade, while attending East Pennsboro Middle School. She was so friendly and easy to talk to. She taught me so much about being a good person. Her philosophy was pay it forward with no expectations of reward,
    which I continue adhering to. Rest easy, dear friend. 💟
