Tammy Leigh Bennett passed away on Friday, April 30th at Bristol Regional Medical Center.

Tammy was a lifelong resident of Kingsport, Tennessee. She was a member of the 1985 graduating class of Sullivan North High School. She will be remembered for her big heart, infectious smile, and making sure no one left her presence without her reminding them she loved them.

She is survived by her mother; Mentoria Williams, daughters; Kayla Bledsoe (Darin), Haley Bennett, grand-daughter; Brynn Bledsoe, brother; David Williams (Teri) and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and special friends.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff of Bristol Regional Hospital--especially Dr. Jessica McCracken, Katie Buchanan, and the entire ICU staff.

There will be a private family memorial service celebrating the life of Tammy.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Bennett / Williams family.

Even though me and Tammy had lost touch over the years, I will always remember her as a great friend and manager. I worked with her at Houser Shoes many years ago. I met Tammy thru her cousin Janet, when we were in high school, they were like sisters instead of cousins. I love them both dearly!! My heart has been broken hearing the news but I am thankful I will see her again one day. I will be praying for comfort for all of her family and friends!! You will be missed my precious friend!! I love you very much!!!!!

Ms Williams, Kayla and Haley,

I was devastated to hear the news about Tammy. I just want you all to know how much you impacted me. All of you have the sweetest souls and I’m sure Tammy was just the same. Your kindness, love, and respect for one another was evident to everyone who met your family. That is a rare quality these days and it was such a blessing to meet you all. Your entire family has been heavy in my heart and prayers. I will forever remember Tammy and the beautiful family that surrounded her.
And Kayla, if you read this, please know what a strong and powerful woman you are! I know without a doubt that Tammy knew you were there and never left her side. You have an inner strength that is beautiful to behold and I pray it will never be lost. You and Haley will both be in my prayers. Much love to you all!

I am so sorry to hear about Tammy, she was such a sweet person and will be greatly missed. I got to know her when our daughters cheered together at Premier Cheerleading then reconnected when we both worked together at AOA. We had some good times and will never forget the April Fool's prank that was pulled on her, she loved her family. May God give you peace during this time.

Prayers for you all. Tammy was such as sweet, loving soul. She was always such a bright and vibrant soul and she will be truly missed. She used to braid my hair as well.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of knowing Tammy during the many years of coaching Kayla in cheer. I remember her bright smile and her ability to always make someone laugh. Your mother was an amazing lady. I pray that you feel God’s love during this time and that you know your sweet momma is always watching you.

To Tammy’s family, my deepest condolences for your loss of Tammy. I worked with her at The Urology Clinic of Bristol. Tammy was one in a million. Our office is truly going to miss her sweet personality and loving heart. She was always wanting to help her coworkers, smiling brightly with her beautiful smile and making sure she told you she loved you as we left at the end of the day. Tammy loved her family so much and would talk all the time about you. Our office will never be the same. She is a part of our family forever. May you find comfort and peace in the days ahead and know she is one of God’s angels now.
