It seems that nearly everyone in Boerne[,Texas,] has a Tammie Jo story, and taken together, they paint a picture of a woman almost too impossibly caring, too impossibly devoted to her community. But, they say, that’s why she was a role model long before she landed that damaged jetliner.
Longtime friend and fellow church member Staci Thompson said a deep Christian faith has guided the way Shults lives.
Shults has taught nearly every grade level of Sunday school at their church. She’s volunteered at a school for at-risk kids and turned a cottage on her family’s property into a temporary home for victims of Hurricane Rita and widows.
“She would tell you everything she has she’s been given from God, so she wants to share it,” Thompson said.
