Tamara was born in Fort Dodge, Iowa, to James B. and Kathryn L. Rickert. Welcomed home by three older siblings--Sandra (8), Terri (6), and James (4)--and four loving grandparents--Harry & Edna Harlan and Herman & Ella Rickert.

She attended Reinbeck Public Schools and was active in vocal and instrumental music, sports, and technical education from 1966-1979 until her graduation and then Iowa State in 1979. She then went to Wartburg, graduating with a degree in business administration in 1983.

She married David Lee Geer in 1988, and welcomed two daughters Stephanie Jo and Jessica Lee. Tami has been a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, and teacher for many years, and for that she deserves to be included in this plaza for heroines.
