Tammy (Bednorski) Gass Passes On
May 24, 2012
Dave Mikalofsky submitted: Tammy (Bednorski) Gass was killed Wednesday while riding her bike near her home in Wausau, WI. One of the strange mysteries of life is that her first husband Gregg perished on the same road just a few miles and a few years ago doing the exact same thing. She leaves behind 2 kids and 2 step-kids and a husband. A very sad day.
An avid road and Mt bike cyclist who participated for a number of years in WISPORT races, did the same in WORS,and the Chequamegon 50. She also enjoyed spending the winter months skiing the trails of Nine Mile County Forest and Winter Park in Minocqua.
