December 3, 1960 ~ December 8, 2017
It is with great sadness that the family of Tamela Epps Levi announces she was called up to heaven on Friday the 8th of December, 5 days after her 57th birthday & just two short years since her diagnosis. Tammy was born in Nashville, TN on December 3, 1960 but spent most of her life in Georgia and the last 11 years in Buford, near her beloved Lake Lanier. The lake was her happy place and she spent as much time as possible on it or in it. Tammy loved to travel and thankfully got to see a lot of the world with her favorite spot being Australia and second favorite being the British Virgin Islands. She loved the water, boating, & dancing the night away with her friends. She was beautiful inside and out, never met a stranger, and always lived by the motto Live, Laugh, Love. She loved her family and friends and if there was a party she wanted to be in the middle of it. Tammy spent a lot of her career in the banking industry and the last 6 years with Resurgens Bank, where her many talents were put to use amongst the tight knit group of employees. Tammy spent most of her life in Georgia rooting for the Bulldogs, but after spending some time at Texas A&M games, she became an Aggie at heart. Tammy is survived by her mother Christine Epps, her brothers Tony & wife Linda Gower and Tyler & wife Diane Gower, sister Tina Fawbush, niece Amber Fawbush, and her loving husband Tony Burgess. She was preceded in death by her father William Herbert Epps, nephew Ricky Fawbush and her Brother-in-law Rick Fawbush. She is leaving a hole in the hearts of everyone that knew her. God has our angel now and she is without pain and resting in peace. A visitation will be held at Wages & Sons funeral home at 1031 Lawrenceville Hwy in Lawrenceville, GA on Saturday, 12-16 from 2-4 PM followed immediately by a memorial service. In lieu of flowers please donate to St. Jude Children’s Hospital (childhood cancer) in her honor.
