March 21, 1968-December 30, 2022
Tammi-Lee Smith (Palmaruk) ended her journey and left this Earth in the early morning hours of Friday, December 30, 2022. She fought a valiant and graceful battle against a brutal and merciless enemy, yet passed onto whatever comes next surrounded by many loved ones and wonderful medical attention at the Mindemoya Health Centre. She is survived by her husband, Will Smith. Her daughters Brittany Borton (Digger Wyman) and Stephanie Borton. Her brother Dean Palmaruk (Kathy) and her niece Julie. Her sister Lynn Zula (Mike) and her sister Jani Borton (Barry). Her grandson Greyson Wyman, her best friend Lila Sloss (Richard Bayer) and her fur-child Franklin Dakota Smith. She is predeceased by her sister Jodie Palmaruk, her parents Bill and June Palmaruk, her brother Nick Palmaruk, and her adopted companion, Hurley Chihuahua Smith. Tammi loved life and loved living on Manitoulin Island. She was a proud Canadian and very proud of her family. She fell in love with fishing 12 years ago and became quite good at it. She’s been in love with music her entire life, especially the band Rush. The nature around her was sacred and appreciated. The friends she had in life were equally so. Godspeed, baby. We will all be together again. Friends and Family gathered at Simpson Funeral Home on Saturday January 7, 2023 from 1-3pm. Donations in Tammi-Lee’s name can be mailed to Pet Save Manitoulin, 2256 Union Road, Evansville, Ontario P0P 1E0.
