OBITUARY

Tammie Goff

July 3, 1959January 6, 2021

Tammie Leah Allman Monroe Goff (61) born July 3, 1959 in Parkersburg, West Virginia, the daughter of Nina and Norman Allman, made it to her eternal home in Heaven on January 6, 2021. Surrounded at home by her loving family, Tammie made the journey into Jesus’ and her Daddy’s arms. After enduring a courageous two year battle, she finally succumbed to an incurable cancer.

Tammie is survived by her ‘Snookums’, the love of her life for the last 30 years, Terry Lynn Goff, of Washington, WV. Mommy: Nina Jean Smith Allman of Mineral Wells, WV. Mother and Father-In-Law: Dorothy Lillian Maxson Goff and Roger Wayne Goff of Washington, WV. Children: Sons, Matthew David Monroe (Donna) and Andrew Michael Monroe (Rachel Valencia) of Washington, WV, and treasured bonus daughter Crystal Jade Goff Squires (Jason Longwell) of Parkersburg, WV. Grand Angels: Madelynn Leah Monroe, David Matthew Monroe, Bryant Michael Monroe, and Brantley Austyn Squires, and bonus granddaughters Cierrah and Regan Longwell. Siblings: Debbie Jackson of Maryland, Lisa Small (Marvin) of Mineral Wells, WV, and Eric Allman (Michelle Hess) of Vienna, WV. And multiple aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, and her village of friends.

She is preceded in death by her Daddy, Norman Roosevelt Allman who died on November 1, 2020 of COVID-19, husband David Matthew Monroe who died in 1986, stepson Terry Lynn Goff Jr. (TJ) who died in 1983. Daddy’s Little Girl will be having a reunion in heaven with her Daddy and all her loved ones who preceded her including special Aunt Ireta McCoy who died on July 6, 2020.

Tammie graduated from Parkersburg South High School in 1977. Tammie was Vice President and Office Manager of Goff Brothers Machine and Fabrication Inc. of Washington, WV. However, her favorite title was being Nana to her precious Grand Angels who were the light of her life. Nana was their biggest cheerleader and fan for whatever activity they participated in. She was lovingly known as Nana to her many friends and relatives.

Tammie dealt with the many obstacles in her life with grace, determination, and courage while always having a smile on her face; she definitely was a warrior princess. Fight, Fight, Fight was Tammie’s Motto! From a young age Tammie battled childhood illnesses, suffered the loss of her high school sweetheart at 27 years old leaving her with her two young sons under the age of 5, but finally found true love again and formed a blended family with Terry, Matthew, Andrew and Crystal. Terry was Tammie’s rock through all her joys and life’s journey and struggles. To know Tammie was to love her, she never met a stranger and everyone loved her spitfire, sassy personality. She lived life to the fullest and was always lending a hand and helping others until the very end. Wherever Tammie went there was a glowing aura around her. You couldn’t miss her blonde hair, bright colorful vibrant wardrobe, dark tan, bright pearly white smile, and her bling and rings on every finger; her most treasured adornment was her Nana necklace. However, Nana’s bling and glitz were dull in comparison to her luminous smile which lit up the lives of all who knew her. The world is little dimmer after Tammie’s passing but she will be the brightest star shining down from Heaven. The family has received so many tributes from her village of friends and prayer warriors on social media and text of the incredible impact Tammie made on everyone’s lives. She was a friend to all and loved deeply by everyone she met.

Tammie and Terry were snow birds for the last several years, and enjoyed going to Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida since 1994 where they loved to boat, fish, and just hang out at the beach. Tammie also enjoyed crafting, camping “Glamping to Nana”, traveling, shopping and just spending time with family and friends.

Tammie was a faithful servant of the Lord attending Grace Gospel and Washington United Methodist churches. One of Tammie’s last Facebook message to everyone was that she loved them and that they need to give their life to the Lord – He is the only way!

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the staff and doctors at Strecker Cancer Center of Belpre and Marietta, Ohio including doctors: Kelli Cawley, Rajendra Bhati and Srini Vasan, and special hospice nurse Camilla Meriwether. We can never thank everyone enough for the excellent care “Nana” received during her courageous 2-year battle with cancer.

Hello Everyone: Mere words can not begin to express the loss we feel today. Tammie was such a dear, dear neighbor and friend. A kindred spirit as she was so loving, giving, funny and full of life. Her world quickly became our world and vice versa, as she and Terry so openly shared their universe with us, mere neighbors at the time.

It was evident from the beginning that family was the center of her world. Every chance she and Terry had, they welcomed us with open arms, encircling us with family and friends. On our very first visit (and each visit!) to West Virginia, Ron and I were amazed by the outpouring of inclusion and love from Tammie and family. We had to see everyone, it was a given in Tammie's world. And what a wonderful sense of love and pride we felt from all. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Tammie was such a joy to be with; such an inspiration in her triumph over pain and suffering. She was/is and always will be my hero! I told her this many a time and I truly believe this.
Tammie once told me that she always needed to have a plan, an event or a destination to look forward to on the horizon. Well, I'm sure Heaven won't be quite the same upon her arrival. Events will go on, with inclusion to all, and with her generous outpouring of love and laughter to all.

To her family, Ron and I send our sincere condolences. Take time to remember and grieve but also take comfort in her many daily teachings of past. Especially take comfort in her last teaching that she offered via Face Book. Believe!! Don't take life too seriously that you forget to enjoy little ones and little things in life. Be safe, be patient and be kind to one another. Love and hugs (virtually of course!) to all.

May God bless Tammie and all her family and friends and may he keep her close by his side. Sincerely, Ron and Norma Bowers, Prince Edward Island, Canada

So sorry for your loss Terry and family. Tammie always had a smile, and showed kindness to everyone. For the little time we knew her down here at St. Petersburg, Fl. she was outgoing with love and kindness. She will be missed dearly.

Tammie was a sweet, sweet caring lady! I took care of her at Marietta Memorial Hospital! I took care of her, bathed her, tried comforting her, showed my love for her! and I even cried with her! I knew how bad she wanted to be home with Terry and the rest of her loved ones and I wanted that for her too! I cried with her as I hugged her the day she left the hospital! My heart breaks that she is no longer with us on this earth but I am also am reassured & comforted that she is no longer suffering and is at peace! Prayers and love and hugs sent to her loved ones! She was a wonderful woman! And it was my pleasure to be one of the many who had her as a patient at the hosptial. God Bless you all!

I will miss your smile and kind words:) I was trying to remember how long we have been friends. But, had to be 9th grade, and even though as adults our busy lives made it harder to spend lots of time together, we sure had fun when we were able to! It was like we started up where we left off each time! So many fun memories and some sad ones. But, I was sure glad to have you in my corner as my friend. RIP and I will never forget you until we meet again.

To here family, I am so very sorry for your loss. To lose a beautiful soul like Tammie is so hard. Sending you all many prayers and lots of hugs. She is dancing with no pain now.
