She has lived in Superior since 2001 with her three children: Jami, 13, Mikayla, 8, and Riley, 4. Tami and her family previously lived on a farm between Hardy and Byron: They de- cided to move to Superior after a fire cofiStimed their home. Tami is the daughter of Larry and Judy Mikkelsen. Ruskin. and the niece of Gale and Marie Mikkelsen, Superior. Although the Mikkelsen's lived in Ruskin, she began attending Su- perior Public Schools in the 7th grade when her older brother was enrolled in Superior schools. "It just made more sense to my folks to have both of us in the same school system," Tami explained. She graduated from Superior High School in 1990 As it turned out, Tami believes moving back to Superior has been a positive for her family "The school system here is just fantastic," she said. Mikayla has some health issues that the school has gone above and beyond in working with me on." Tami also does interior and exterior holase painting. In her free time, she enjoys time with friends and family, hunting, fishing and water and snow skiing Welcome to Superior, Tami! FUNERAL HOMES 750 N Commercial, Superior, Neb. 402-879-3900
