Tammy Heidbreder



Tammy Marie (Casey) Heidbreder, 49, of Lebanon, and formerly of Belle, passed away Sunday, April 30, 2023, at the SSM Health St. Louis University Hospital.

She was born Nov. 19, 1973, a daughter to the late Kenneth Casey and Adatha Crider (Casey) in Rolla. Adatha survives of her home.

She was a 1992 graduate of Belle High School and, while working, took classes and obtained a bachelor’s degree in social science and a masters degree in education in family and community service.

Tammy was united in marriage to Billy Heidbreder, Sept. 8, 2012, on a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks. Billy survives of their home in Lebanon.

She always gave her best at every job she had. She worked her way up to a managers position at Kmart in Rolla and used that experience to help open the Staples Store in Rolla. Tammy spent years working at the Phelps County Bank in Rolla, but the job she loved the most was her current job as a senior property manager for Hamilton Properties in Lebanon and Marshfield senior apartments. She loved helping the people that lived on the property and was always willing to listen and lend a hand to anyone in need. She gained a lot of friends who were like her own family there.

Tammy enjoyed being outdoors, planting flowers, mowing grass, and taking UTV rides with family and friends. She was very talented when it came to any kind of crafts. Capturing pictures of family and friends at gatherings was a passion of hers. Tammy had the biggest heart. She was always looking and finding ways to bless others. Her family and friends were very important to her. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by father, Kenneth; and grandmothers, Edna Tyree and Mary Ridenhour.

Tammy is survived by mother, Adatha; husband, Billy; son, Caleb Carroll and girlfriend McKenzie Zeigenbein of Lebanon; step-son, Cory Heidbreder and fiancé Katelynn Palmer of Springfield; step-daughter, Layni Heidbreder of Owensville; and sister, Kimberly Baker and husband Terry of Rolla; along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends.
