    Tamara Anne Smith Hare, age 56, passed away peacefully on November 13, 2018 in Wilmington, NC. Tammy was born on June 21, 1962 to Charles Lindbergh Smith and Dorothy Aileen Smith in Fayetteville, NC. She was the youngest of three children. She was a 1981 graduate of Terry Sanford High School where she met Alton Hare Jr. They were married in 1980 and had their son Alton in 1984. Her daughter Amanda was born in 1993. During her life, she resided in Shallotte, Fayetteville (Hope Mills), and, most recently, Wilmington, NC.

    Her favorite pastime was spending time with family and friends. She loved spending time at the beach and at church. She was a member of many congregations. She was actively involved in The Bridge Church when she lived near the beach in Shallotte. She loved going to the movies, reading a good book, and of course the beach. The next movie she was going to see was Bohemian Rhapsody. She enjoyed lunch dates with friends, shopping, church, and family. She kept in contact with many friends from high school, especially members of the band. Everyone knew she was the best clarinet player. She was looking forward to an upcoming reunion.

    She is survived by children Alton (Melanie) and Amanda; brothers Ron (Denise) and Lin (Annette); nephews Daniel, Michael, Ron Jr (Ashley), Justin (Kathryn), and Matthew; and granddaughter Lyla. A wake will be held on Monday, November 19th from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM and a memorial service begins right away at 2:00 PM. Both will be held at: Brunswick Funeral Home (5229 Ocean Highway W, Shallotte, NC 28470). In lieu of flowers, please donate to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (, 3803 N. Fairfax Drive, Suite 100, Arlington, VA 22203)

    We will all carry your memory in our hearts. She will be dearly missed.
