Tamara Moskaleva

January 15, 1938 — September 28, 2023

Tamara Moskaleva, affectionately known as Baba Toma, was called home by the Lord on September 28, 2023, in Greenville, South Carolina. Born on January 15, 1938, in the heart of Russia, Baba Toma was a beacon of generosity, kindness, and selflessness, illuminating the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Baba Toma was a woman of great intellect and determination. She earned her Master's Degree in Civil Engineering from a prestigious university, a testament to her unwavering commitment to education and personal growth. Yet, her life's work was not confined to the realm of academia or professional pursuits. Baba Toma's true calling was caring for others in the most kind and devoted way, a mission she carried out with grace and humility throughout her life.

She was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, leaving behind a legacy of love and devotion. Her daughter, Irina Chumanov, was the apple of her eye, and her grandchildren, Kristina and Rober, were her pride and joy. Baba Toma was also blessed with five great-grandchildren: Bradley, Marcus, Rebecca, Olivia, and Luca. Each one held a special place in her heart, and she cherished every moment spent with them.

Baba Toma had a passion for gardening that was as deep as her love for her family. She found joy and peace in the simple act of nurturing plants, and her garden was a testament to her patience, dedication, and the love she poured into everything she did. Her garden was not just a collection of plants, but a reflection of her soul - vibrant, nurturing, and full of life.

In the words of the Good Book, "A good name is better than precious ointment," and Baba Toma's name was indeed a sweet fragrance in the lives of all who knew her. Her generosity knew no bounds, her kindness was a balm to many a weary soul, and her selflessness was a shining example for us all. She lived her life with a grace and dignity that was truly inspiring, touching countless lives with her warmth and love.

As we bid farewell to Baba Toma, let us remember her not with sorrow, but with gratitude. Gratitude for the love she shared, the lives she touched, and the lessons she taught us. Her spirit lives on in the hearts of her loved ones, and her legacy will continue to inspire generations to come. May her soul rest in eternal peace, cradled in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father. Amen.
