Tammy Dermody: Walton’s Funerals & Cremations

Meet Tammy Dermody, President of Walton’s Funerals & Cremations.
Tammy Dermody


How did you first get into your profession?
It is a family business that I worked in over the summers since I was 16 years old. I have always been close to my father and wanted to follow in his footsteps, as he is so compassionate and kind.

If you had to choose another profession, what would it be?
Executive Director of a non-profit organization, helping children who are at risk.

What do you wish you would have learned at the beginning of your career?
That when you come across a difficult situation, do not react right away. Take the time to assess the situation from all sides, then make an educated and well-thought out action plan.

If you could take back one sentence you’ve ever spoken, what would it be?
That I could not do something. I believe that with hard work and determination anything can be achieved, so always follow your dreams even if, at times, they seem unachievable.
