Tammela (Tammy) Kay Vinas (Riedinger)
Tammy passed away peacefully, with her youngest daughter and best friend Jamie holding her hand, on Saturday, February 1, 2020 after a long illness.
Tammy was born on June 23rd, 1960, in Cuyahoga Falls OH to Morgan Riedinger and Julie Thirjung. She attended Cuyahoga Falls schools until she moved to Manchester in her teen years. She was greeted in Heaven by her two precious children, Janice and Jeremy Beall, her father Morgan, sister Terry Ann, and step-sister Kathy.
Tammy enjoyed spending time reading, working in her garden when she could, studying up and becoming an "expert" on all things pertaining to the British Royal Family, helping her friends in need within her online community network, experimenting with new recipes and loved visiting with her grandchildren. She truly made a difference to those in crisis, and we take comfort in knowing her lasting presence will be felt by so many.
She leaves behind her baby girl Jamie Beall who will miss her more than words can adequately describe, her grandchildren who made her smile with every photo and every word spoken; Isaiah, Jadea, Josie, William Jr. and Laila Rose. She will be greatly missed by her adoring Mother, Julie (Mike) Gungle from Akron OH, her 2nd Mother, Nancy Riedinger of Ocean Springs MS, her Partner of 20 years Don Boyle, her loving sisters Tracy Morrison of Canal Fulton OH, Tanya (Rob) Zikoski of Pittsburgh PA, Tina Welch of Tampa FL, Kathy (David) Pasquini of Ocean Springs MS, and Karla Valentine of North Canton OH; and her steadfast brother, Tom (Amanda) McMullen of Abington VA. Many, many Aunts, Uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends will miss her tremendously.
The family would like to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to Suncoast Hospice. Tammy received love and concern throughout her time in their care and we will never forget it. The volunteers, nurses, aides, and others are angels here on Earth. Bless you all.
Tam, we love you. We miss you. Until we see you again dancing on the stage of memories - sleep tight.
Details for the memorial service to honor Tammy's life will be shared at a later date. A service will also take place in Ohio in the Spring.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Jamie Beall in care of Beacon Crematory to help defer service expenses.
