October 17, 1959 ~ August 20, 2021

Born in: Taipei, Taiwan
Resided in: Lawrenceville, Georgia

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Tami Sue Plank Singleton (“Mimi”) of Lawrenceville, Georgia, announce her passing on August 20, 2021. Tami was the young age of 61.

Tami was born in Taipei, Taiwan; however, as part of a military family, she travelled and grew up all over the USA. She also lived in Italy and the Philippines.
To say that she was passionate in all that she did is an understatement. She was a phenomenal wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, sister-in-law, aunt and friend. It was said that Tami loved fiercely and all who know her personally would agree! To many she was known as “Mama Tami”.

Tami retired from a career with Target Corporation a few short years ago. She would then embark on a new career, which she dearly loved, as a Special Needs School Bus Driver with Gwinnett County Board of Education. Her life was one of service as she loved to help others in any way she could whether she knew them or not. However, she would say her greatest achievement in life was being the best “Mimi” possible.
She was preceded in death by her father, Fredric R. Plank and sister, Traci Ann Plank. Tami is survived by her Husband of 37 years, Larry Singleton; Janet Plank, mother; daughter, Brandi Waters (Kenny); granddaughter, Kimmy Waters, grandson, Jameson Waters; sister, Laurie Wood (Phil); niece, Alicia Martin (Josh); niece, Ashley Wood; brother, Dan Plank; nephew, Keegan Plank (Ashley); nieces Ryleigh and Rhiannon Plank; great nephews, Toby Martin and Forrest Plank; great niece, Avery Martin; and more friends than be listed.

Family and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life gathering for Tami on Sunday October 17, 2021 at 1:30pm at Harbins Park, 2995 Luke Edwards Rd Dacula, GA 30019.

  1. Love you and miss you Mrs. Tami to say you were a loving ,caring, and such a great person all away around would be an understatement. I loved to hear you call me sugar when I would see you. My heart is overwhelmed with grief. I hope to see you soon as God promises at Revelation 21:3,4
    With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”See you in paradise!

  2. I wish she only knew, how much her love warmed my soul. There is nothing more powerful than a kind heart, and her love made me feel like I am a part of the new world that I came to, and I will never forget. May God rest her beautiful soul in peace and her family know, she was a light that touched my heart and I will never forget and I will be forever grateful.

  3. CandleImageIn the short time that I was in your presence, you have made an impact. I miss you dearly and I love you. ♥️

  4. I think I thought if I signed your guestbook it would make it true or real but I want you to know how much you are loved and how much I miss you . From the time we walked through those doors at Target a little over 20 years ago together, little did I know we would not only be best friends , but sisters . You changed my life and you were always there for me even when I didn’t ask . My heart will always be missing an important piece .You are so special and will be missed dearly and anyone who knew you knows just how REAL you are. Thoughts & Prayers for the whole family during this time of loss . We love you !❤️

  5. CandleImageYou were an angel on this earth, so it’s no wonder you were called back so soon. I miss and love you dearly, Mama Tami. Your light will always shine because it cast the shadows away for so many of us. You’re forever in my heart.

  6. Larry I am totally shocked at this sad news. As you know Tami and I had become like brother and sister since I worked the case on Tracy. God had received one of the most caring and devoted angels. I am totally in disbelief this happened and if you are in need of anything please contact me. GOD’S BLESSINGS TO ALL THE FAMILY AND MAY YOU FIND PEACE WITH OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. AMEN

  7. CandleImageYou were the best neighbor that I ever had. We so appreciated how you watched over us and our dog. I wish that we could have moved you and Larry to Florida with us. I now have a lemon tree. Every time I see it I think of you. I know that you are in heaven watching over us. God must have needed another angel.

  8. CandleImageLarry, Brandi and extended family! We are still in disbelief of the passing of Tami! She was, and will always be, my very best friend. She took me under her wings when we moved to Florida from Iowa and I felt like I had known her forever. We miss her deeply and pray that the coming days, weeks, and months bring you peace and comfort! We love and miss all of you!
