Obituary for Tam Salsberry

Tam Salsberry, 65, of Toledo, Ohio passed away on July 2, 2022. She is survived by her spouse Tamra Keil, as well as her brother Todd (Cam) Salsberry of Hudson, Ohio and her adoring nieces Clare, Madeline, Audrey and Eve. She also leaves behind many grandnephews and a grandniece, all of which she showered with adoration and PEZ candies, keeping alive a tradition started by her mother almost 40 years ago. She is preceded in death by her loving mother and father, Barbara and Thomas Salsberry.
Tam was a graduate of the University of Toledo and UT Law School. She and her mother opened Barbara Brown dress shop and worked side by side for many years, enjoying owning and operating the business in downtown Waterville until its closing. Not one to toot her own horn, Tam was extremely creative and enjoyed hobbies such as woodworking, knitting and cross stitch where she could let her artistic talents shine. She and Tamra, her partner of 22 years most enjoyed spending time in their home together in the Burnley Wood neighborhood, where Tam loved to walk her beloved dogs Bob and Kirby.
Her friends will remember her for her wit and willingness to find humor in anything. Her cherished nieces will remember her giant smile, joyous laughter and her youthful sense of fun. Tamra will remember her unwavering loyalty, support and companionship, her fantastic sense of humor and her daily joy for life.
A gathering of family and friends will take place July 30, 2022 at Coyle Funeral Home, 1770 S. Reynolds Road from 1-3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Toledo Humane Society in her honor. <>. Please view Tam’s Memorial Video tribute and leave a condolence message at
