Tammy Lynn Brewer was born in Bentonville, Arkansas, on December 17, 1966, and entered Heaven's Gates on September 1, 2021. Tom and Hazel Brewer and kids of El Dorado Springs, Missouri, met Tammy Lynn at the age of four, there she was, this tiny little girl whom we all fell in love with instantly. 

Tom and Hazel adopted her on March 29, 1974, and they gave her a loving Christian home. Tammy Lynn inherited three siblings: Linda Brewer Smith, Ron Brewer, and Don Brewer. Her school years were at El Dorado Springs R-II through graduation. Tammy Lynn was baptized and a member of the Park Street Christian Church. Every summer, she loved going on trips to Colorado with her parents to visit family and go camping at Twin Peaks by Leadville, Colorado. Tammy Lynn loved her family and we loved her!!

Along the way, her brother Randy Yancey found her, Oh What Joy!! Randall and his wife, Belinda, live in South Carolina. Another brother, Ron Yancey and his wife, Tonya, live in Arkansas. Now the rest of the story by her brother, Randy!

Tammy, Ron, and Randy were separated at a very young age and it was more than 25 years before we were finally reunited together again. I always knew we had a sister out there somewhere and we were all so excited to finally be reunited. In the process of trying to find her we wandered around and found that we had a half-brother, Rick Laughlin and three half-sisters: Cheryl Laughlin, Fran Nichols, and Rachel Copp. We were so blessed to find them and their mom, Lona Laughlin and Diane Holmes. They took us all in as family.

We always enjoyed having Tammy spend time with us; she could be ahandful at times and very stubborn, but she loved everyone and just wanted attention. We all loved her very much. She loved spending time with family, going four-wheeling in the mud; she loved doing crafts of any kind and loved food. Tammy loved going to the beach and shopping while she was in South Carolina with her biological daughter, Elizabeth Yancey, whom we adopted at birth. Tammy entrusted us to take care of her, and for that I will always be grateful.

Tammy was special to all of us and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her. If roses grow in heaven Lord, please pick a bunch for me and place them in my sister’s arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her that we love and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while. Remembering her is easy, I will do it every day, but there is an ache in my heart that will never go away. We all love you dearly and we will see each other again one day. Love you Sis.

Tammy Lynn was preceded in death by her adoptive parents, Tom and Hazel Brewer. She is survived by: Randall and Belinda Yancey, Elizabeth Yancey, Ron and Tonya Yancey, Rick Laughlin, Rachel Copp, Fran Nichols, Cheryl Laughlin, Lona Laughlin, Diane Holmes, Linda Brewer Smith, Ron and Teresa Brewer, and Don and Diana Brewer. She is also survived by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles.
