In Loving Memory of Tamera Tinsley

Sunrise: Jan. 18, 1969 - Sunset: August 12, 2023 Tamera Tinsley, better known as “Tammy T” was born in Seattle, WA to Jewell Russell and Edward Tinsley. Mom was homegrown and organic, with her roots reaching deep into the Central District. But her love branched out throughout the entire city. She’s best known for her sweeping sense of humor, her illuminating smile, and her infectious laughter. Tammy T modeled authenticity. She showed you can be, transparent, imperfect, and yet, still serve a perfect God. One thing for certain is our mama loved the Lord! She taught her children to love Christ. Tammy modeled being Christ-like by loving who you are, right where you are. That’s real. That’s agape love. Growing up our house was the Kool Aid house. Everybody and their mama was invited. Our snack drawer stayed full, the chicken stayed getting fried, and when you left you were filled with food and love. If you really knew our mom, you knew she liked to be treated to go out and eat too! (haha) You can hear her now saying her famous line, “Cut me in or cut it out!” as she would invite herself to a good time. We know you share our sentiments as a piece of our heart was cut out in her departure. We have to be resilient and confident that to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. While we mourn her loss, we find peace in knowing her spirit lives on through the countless lives she touched. If you know and love Ms. Tamera Tinsley please come celebrate her life with us on Tuesday, September 19, 2023 at 11:00AM @ Seattle Christian Church, 4402 S Graham St, Seattle, WA 98118.
