Tamme Anne Marcotte

Tamme Anne Marcotte, Chancellor, SD, gently passed away on June 10, 2017, at her home following an illness. She was 59.

Tamme Anne Gavin was born December 24, 1957, in Sioux Falls, SD, to Edward and Earline (Fiedler) Gavin. She attended Sioux Falls public schools, and was active in gymnastics and 4H horse competitive events. Tamme was a member of the Honor Society, and graduated from Washington Senior High School in 1975, one year early.

Tamme was united in marriage with Richard J. Marcotte on February 24, 1996, in Sioux Falls, SD. The couple enjoyed living on their acreage in the Chancellor area, where Tamme could surround herself with her horses, and many cats and dogs.

Years ago, Tamme owned and operated her own leather apparel shop in downtown Sioux Falls. She later became a sales associate and decorator at HOM Furniture in Sioux Falls. A highly talented designer and decorator, Tamme was a much sought-after consultant in her field.

Tamme was filled with energy and lived life to its fullest. In her free time, she enjoyed planting and caring for her flower gardens. She had a passion for horses, and enjoyed riding in the area and in the central Black Hills.

Blessed with an outgoing and warm spirit, Tamme will be forever cherished by all who knew her.

Grateful for having shared her life are her husband, Rick Marcotte; mother, Earline Gavin; granddaughter, Kaylee McKenney; and her brothers, Aaron Gavin and David Gavin. She was preceded in death by her son, Heath Westphal; her father, Edward; brother, John; and her sister, Rita.

Funeral Mass will be 11:00am Friday, June 16, 2017, at Christ the King Catholic Church, Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The family will be present to greet friends from 5:00 to 7:00 Thursday evening at Miller Westside Chapel, 6200 W. 41st Street in Sioux Falls.
