Tammie Ruth Arnold

Published 10:56 am Monday, June 20, 2022

Tammie Ruth Arnold of Elizabethton was called home unexpectedly on June 18, 2022 following an extended illness. There will never be another like Tammie. She had overcome so much in her life and still showed everyone around her so much love.
Tammie graduated from Tennessee Technology for Business Administration. She was the epitome of perseverance. Her laugh was contagious and boisterous. She will be remembered for always hugging and saying I love you before leaving, her back tickles like only a momma can give, singing in the car with her girls, and always joking with her husband. She loved her family and the Lord something fierce. She will never be forgotten and will always live on in the hearts of those who love her.
She was preceded in death by her son, Nathaniel Luke (McGill) Arnold; her mother, Wanda Ledford; special father figure, Murphy Carrol; and sister, Cathy Richardson.
She leaves behind her loving husband of almost 35 years, Andrew Arnold; three daughters and son, Heather Arnold (fiancé Michael Crow), Nikki Arnold and Ashley Arnold; a granddaughter, Lydia Jade Arnold (Mamaw’s Angel); her second momma, Hazel Casey; four sisters, Sherry Darnell, Lisa Smith, Norma Lee Sanchez and Elizabeth Arnold; special nieces, Cayla McKinney, Caitlin Adams and Princess Mills; nephews, Drew Peters, John Smith and Allen Smith; three daughters she claimed as her own, Jamie Banner (Pritchard), Ashley Johnson and Amanda Pearson; special friends/family, Debbie Banner, Lisa and Darrell Crow; and so many more loving friends and family.
A service to celebrate Tammie’s life will be conducted at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 21, at Tetrick Funeral Home, Elizabethton. The family will receive friends from 5 to 6 p.m., prior to the service. The graveside service and interment will be conducted at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 22, at Washington County Memory Gardens. Active pallbearers will be selected from family and friends.
