Tammy (Presnell) Freeman

December 9, 1965 ~ March 2, 2018 (age 52)

Tammy Presnell Freeman, age 52, of Marion, passed away peacefully at the John F. Keever Jr. Solace Center in Asheville on Friday, March 2, 2018.  Her family was at her side during her final moments.  One of ten children born to the late Gilmore Presnell and Georgia Davis Presnell of Marion, she was born on December 9, 1965 in Spruce Pine.  A true Parrot Head, she was a devoted fan of Jimmy Buffett and loved beach life.  Tammy played hard but also worked hard.  She loved being outdoors, working her garden and enjoying the beauty of nature.  She was also an avid reader and would often be found absorbed in a good book.  More than anything, though, she loved her family and friends, all of whom are saddened by her passing and will miss her deeply.


Tammy leaves behind, in addition to her mother, two children, Rickey Ledford of Marion and Chante Freeman of Asheville; seven brothers and sisters, Sandra Gurley of Swannanoa, Roberta Randolph of Dysartsville, Janice Woody of Marion, Cleo Woody of Marion, Dianna Chrisawn of Avery County, Curtis Presnell of Marion and Patricia Presnell of Marion; and numerous nieces and nephews. Tammy's canine companion, Bella. A memorial service will held Saturday, March 17, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at First Christian Church in Marion with Pastor Don Mitchell officiating.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to CarePartners Hospice and Palliative Care McDowell, PO Box 25338, Asheville, NC 28813.
