MILWAUKEE – The Greenfield Fire Department, Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office,
and Milwaukee Fire Department, are partnering on an effort to assist a local family
that was struck by tragedy during Sunday’s snowstorm.
Tammy Gawlitta, age 39, of West Allis, was involved in a rollover crash on the
freeway that took her life. Good Samaritans stopped to try to save her as her
three‐year‐old daughter stood nearby. Department rescue personnel arrived and
also attempted to save her life.
Gawlitta leaves behind a husband, Michael, and four children, aged 14, 10, 6 and 3.
Her oldest child special needs. Both parents had recently been laid off from their
jobs this holiday season difficult. A Milwaukee Fire Department Lieutenant is a close
relave of Tammy Gawlitta.
The Sheriff’s Office and Greenfield and Milwaukee Fire Departments are asking their
members for any amount to a trust account the family has opened to offset
funeral and other. The three agencies would also like to ask the community to
consider a donation to help family.
Donations are being accepted at all branches
of Associated Bank for the Tammy Gawlitta Benefit Fund.
