Obituary: Brothers, Tami Lynn


Our sweet Tami Lynn, who with great courage and a beautiful smile, fought health issues for five years following complications from a Hobo spider bite.

Tami was born in Dallas, Texas on May 7, 1963.

She was interested in sports throughout her life and was a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys and Spokane Indians Baseball.

Tami’s love of children inspired her to create “Tami’s Tiny Tots”, an in-home daycare she operated prior to her illness.

Tami is survived by her mother Pauline D’Andrea, sister Penny (Mark) Neste, nieces Marisa (Gergely) Kota and Nicole Neste, nephew Brett (Marci) Neste, aunt Lucinda D’Andrea, uncle Michael (Claudia) D’Andrea and numerous cousins.

A celebration of Tami’s life will be held at a later date.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
