The Honorable Tammi Fredrickson, 53, of Coon Rapids, Minn., beloved wife, mother, sister, friend and avid REO Speedwagon fan, passed away June 3, 2019.
Tammi was born in Sudbury, Ontario, and spent her childhood years in Capreol, Ontario, and then Hibbing.
Appointed as a judge in the Tenth Judicial District by Gov. Tim Pawlenty in 2006, Tammi served her community until her death. She is a former city attorney for Coon Rapids. Tammi graduated from William Mitchell College of Law, J.D. (magna cum laude) and the University of Minnesota, B.A. As a judge, Tammi was most proud of co-founding the Anoka County Veterans Court (helping vets access resources available to them and address their outstanding legal issues) and training and mentoring new judges across the state of Minnesota.
She is survived by husband, Tom; children, Kate and Mike; sister, Wendy (Rob) Hayes; and mother-in-law, Dee Dee.
Tammi leaves behind friends too numerous to mention including the Investors, the Island Lake crew, the Thursday Night crew, and many friends made through her children’s youth sports. She also leaves dear family throughout Ontario, including Toronto, Sudbury, Cornwall and Parry Sound.
She was preceded in death by parents, Ross and Eda; and father-in-law, Glen.
A special thank you from the family to the University of Minnesota Oncology and Palliative Care teams and the staff at J.A. Wedum Residential Hospice.
Funeral: Reception to be hosted by the family will be shared at a later date.
Memorials: In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center, The Breath of Hope Lung Foundation, or to the discretion of the family.
