Tammy Nicole McEldowney

Tammy Nicole McEldowney, 34, went home to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on September 9, 2020 in Oldsmar, Florida. She was born on June 10, 1986 to Kermit and Dorothy McEldowney in Ocala, Florida. She was an educator and an administrator at a Christian preschool.

She is survived by her parents; brother, Stephen (Alondra) McEldowney; sisters, Michelle (James) Speicher and Marissa (Will) Pahl; uncles and aunts, Linda McEldowney, Darlene (Dave) Warren, Dale Fackler, Harold Flemming III, Stacy Broughman, Terri (LeRoy) Brown; nieces and nephews, Madison, Hailey, Ralphy, Brantley, Brayden, Amelia, Ian, Amaya, Isaac and Ethan.

Tami dedicated her life as a testimony of faith in God to her students, family, friends, beloved nieces and nephews, and everyone she met. She realized in her battle with cancer that her true mission field was to shine the light of Jesus Christ in death. If just one soul is saved by her loss, she would tell you her death was worth it.

A Funeral service will be held at 12:00 pm, Saturday, September 19, 2020 at Memorial Baptist Church. Visitation will be held one hour prior to service at 11:00 am. Interment to follow at Forest Lawn Memory Gardens. Pastor Michael West officiating. Arrangements under the care of Countryside Funeral Home.

In lieu of flowers, Tami would prefer to be honored by donations to the Memorial Baptist Church mission fund.
