We remember Judy & Don Benson and family at the death of older daughter, Tammy Bryant. She was living in the Jacksonville area and had suffered with many health issues for many years. Although she occasionally visited several years ago, most folks at St. Matthew’s have never met Tammy.
In addition to her parents and younger siblings Roger and Heather (a regular worshiper with her mom), Tammy is survived by two sons, Anthony, 30, and Sean, 18. Some longtime folks at St. Matthew’s will remember Sean, whom Judy brought for worship and other activities.
Tammy was a member of a small Presbyterian church close to her home. Her funeral will be conducted there at a time yet to be named.
Rest eternal grant Tammy, O Lord, and let Light perpetual shine upon her. Amen.
