Tammie Jo (Griffiths) Antenan, 46, of Springfield, IL, formerly of Virden, IL, rose to Heaven on Monday, August 27, 2018.  She was the daughter of Brian and Sharon (Irish) Grooms of Virden, IL.  Tammie’s wedding day, October 8, 2011, was the happiest day of her life!

Tammie was a 1991 graduate of Virden High School.  She was employed for 15 yrs as an employee/manager of McGraw Enterprises. She was a people person and had a huge smile for everyone she met.  To Tammie, family was everything. She enjoyed the simple things in life, like porch sitting at dusk with Al, to their long leisure rides around the lake, and of course, shopping with her mom.  Tammie was an avid collector of frogs in every size, shape, and color.  She will also be remembered as a great cook.  Tammie adored and cherished her grandchildren, a part of her will remain with them forever.
