Tammy Leigh Medlin

December 22, 1968 — June 29, 2023

Tammy Leigh Medlin, an inspiring beacon of selfless love and kindness, passed away peacefully in her hometown of Greenville, SC on June 29, 2023. Born on December 22, 1968, Tammy's life was a testament to the power of positivity and the joy of simple pleasures.
A devoted mother, Tammy's love for her daughters, Jessica Lersch and Candice Gilliam, was a shining example of her nurturing spirit. She extended this love to her sons-in-law, particularly David, Jessica's husband, whom she considered her own. Tammy's heart was big enough to encompass her grandchildren, Curtis Lersch, Samuel Lersch, Evan Gilliam, and Haleigh Gilliam, filling their lives with warmth and kindness. Her siblings, Diane Moore, and Randy Medlin knew her as a sister who was always there for them, a steady presence of love and support.
Tammy's parents, Arthur, and Loretta Medlin, preceded her in death, leaving her with a legacy of strength and resilience that she carried throughout her life. Her beloved dog, Una, or "Poo," as she lovingly called her, was also waiting for her on the other side. However, her faithful canine companion, Bitty, remains to carry on her memory.
Tammy was a woman of simple tastes, finding joy in the sweetness of honey buns and the fizz of a cold Coke. She loved the sun's warm embrace by the pool, a glass of wine in her hand, and the freedom of the open road in her 4Runner. Her passion for work was a testament to her belief in the dignity of labor and the joy of accomplishment.
In the words of Helen Keller, "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart." Tammy embodied this sentiment, her life a testament to the beauty of love, kindness, and selflessness. She touched the hearts of those around her, leaving a lasting imprint that continues to inspire.
Tammy's life was a masterclass in living fully and loving deeply. She was a woman who found joy in the simple things, who cherished her family above all else, and who faced each day with a heart full of kindness and a spirit of generosity. Her memory serves as a reminder to us all to live with love, to savor the sweetness of life, and to face each day with an open heart and a kind spirit.
As we remember Tammy, let us carry her legacy forward. Let us strive to be as selfless, as kind, and as loving as she was. Let us find joy in the simple things, cherish our loved ones, and face each day with a heart full of kindness and a spirit of generosity. In doing so, we honor Tammy's memory and ensure that her light continues to shine brightly in our hearts.
Tammy Leigh Medlin, a woman of incredible strength, love, and kindness, may have left this world but she went to be with true love the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, but her spirit lives on in the hearts of those she touched. Her life was a testament to the power of love, the importance of family, and the joy of simple pleasures. She will be deeply missed, but her legacy of love and kindness will continue to inspire and guide us.
