In my eternal Heart, beautiful "Sunshine Woman" - you will reside .. leaving with it, the remembrance of your light-filled smile .. your gift of powering through any challenge.. of opening your heart to those in great need with welcome and strength ..& for your authentic LOVE -- that goes beyond words. I will miss our 'tea times' of inspiration and philosophy of Being. May I share -- that your gift to me .. was the importance of 'leading with your Heart' .. finding balance each and every day and always, always... ALWAYS.. 'just saying it like it is'. I cherished our times of working side-by-side in support of our homeless and your leading by example. Your radiant inner beauty will be remembered deeply; as well .. imprints of compassion, love and service celebrated! Thank you for your sacred invitation to join with you and your beautiful family in Coeur d/ Alene, .. for it was a privilege beyond words to bring my harp at your bedside .. and hold you in a gentle presence of peace whilst 'singing your spirit home'. I love you Sunshine Woman! My heart-filled blessings, thoughts and prayers to you, Larry .. and beloved family. I am walking with you in this time of sadness .. with my heart open. Each of you .. were the absolutely CENTER of her joy shared!

My heart is broken for everyone in Tamie's life, especially her family. But the wonderful person that she was goes beyond family. She was so much to so many. She was giving, loving, caring,focused determined all for the betterment of her clients. My deepest sympathy to her family. And sympathy for all her clients, co-workers and fellow farmers as well. Tamie will be so missed by so many. It has been said that no one is irreplaceable. None of us can say that about Tamie.

I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the Martinsen family find comfort and strength in Jesus promise along with our heavenly father Jehovah of the earthly resurrection found at John 5:28, 29, when death will be eliminated forever found at Revelations 21:4. Truly, what a glorious and almost unbelievable day that will be! It's a reality though for God cannot lie!

Tamie, Tamie — such a gentle name for such a fierce defender of the homeless; sitting at that desk, in your tiny office, battling the paperwork and procedures of the bureaucracy — like a modern-day “Joan of Arc”; caring for those in need of shelter. Your corner spot at the Farmers Market — for it will forever be “your corner,” to so many of us. That patch of grass and graceful tree, keeping the memory of your kind smiling face, loving eyes, gentle ways with people; yet powerful in all you did — like “Mother Teresa.” Thank you for your years of service to this community and your dedication to so many families. I almost wrote Rest in Peace — but, knowing you, I imagine there’s already a “things-to-do” list and work to be done from your new vantage point.

Farewell my dear, sweet, angel, Tamie. Our hearts are breaking over your passing- I will never forget how you and the amazing staff at Bluehaven took Aaaron and I in when our lives were so difficult!! You taught me how to recognize domestic abuse and I will cherish our friendship throughout the past 8 years. I'm so grateful to have seen you at the fundraiser where you once again so eloquently spoke about the program at bluehaven- You gave me so much throughout the years and helped so many others to put together their lives as well. I believe you are in a better place and you will be thought of for years to come. We send condolences to your family! God bless you my girl- think of you everyday!! Love, Emmy and Aaron Keiser

Tamie, I loved, loved, loved you. I remember first meeting you at The Cupboard Cafe with baby Cassidy. Our connections grew over the years. I'm relieved for you. You will be greatly missed for all that you did in our community. PEACE. "They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies. Nor can spirits ever be divided, that love and live in the same divine principle, the root and record of their friendship. Death is but crossing the world, as friends do the seas; they live in one another still...." - William Penn

Tamie, my friend, confident and co-worker, you are gone way too soon. I will truly miss our weekly conversations about our children and grandchildren. Oh, how you loved Sage and Ari, and loved being "grandma". Your priority was always your family, your boys and Larry, but you also carried many, many lives from our community on your shoulders. You had enormous ? shoulders!! I love you and will miss you so much. XO

I am so sad to see that Tami has passed. She will be remembered as the "Mother to Many" in the homeless community, always a smile and a kind word to everyone she meets. I will hold my red silk/wool scarf closer knowing that a great lady made it. God be with the family and all those that knew and worked with her. Alice
