Tambra "Tami" Ann Nelson-Ulizio
July 10, 1963 - April 9, 2000
Beloved daughter of Cari Nelson (Texasgal)
This will be a permanent memorial page for Tami.
Tami was family oriented. Nothing was more important to her. When she passed away she left a husband Shawn and three children, Shannon, Michelle and Michael. Plus her brother, DJ and me.
She loved her flower garden, tended to it daily, tulips were her favorite flower, along with all her colorful flowers. She had an envious green thumb.
She was left-handed, and I had told her as a child that a lot of artists are left-handed, so in first grade she began drawing cartoon characters freehand and I thought she had an artistic talent. She never followed up on that, I had wanted her to go to art school, but she wanted to get married, so I had no arguments there.
Tami had a flair for fashion and color and loved doing interior decorating, her home was warm and homey in the southwest motif, but she was always making beautiful changes.
Shawn and Tami were married almost twenty years when she left us.
She never could say "no" to a friend in need, no matter how put out it would put her, she never met a stranger, she would talk to anyone, she loved jokes and fun, she loved to laugh, her laugh is just like mine. She was such a happy girl it just made you feel good to be around her. She had such a happy and uplifting personality. She was not just my daughter but my best friend.
Not only was she beautiful on the outside, but her heart and soul were just as beautiful on the inside. She had no enemies except for the illness that took her away from us too soon at the age of 36.
She is now one of God's biggest helpers now, I just know it, He picked the right one for that job.
Rest in Peace and beauty my darling daughter.
