Tammy Faye Messner Passes Away (1942-2007)

Tammy Faye Messner (formerly Tammy Faye Bakker) died Friday after an 11-year struggle with cancer. She was 65 years old. In the 1980’s Tammy Faye appeared with her then husband, Jim Bakker, on the PTL television program, “The Jim and Tammy Show.” Their marriage and ministry fell apart in a well-publicized scandal after Jim was convicted on fraud and conspiracy counts connected with lifetime memberships at the Heritage USA theme park. Jim later wrote a book titled, I Was Wrong, in which he apologized for his misdeeds.
