Tammy Barrows Myrick, age 65, formerly of Panton


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tammy Barrows Myrick, age 65, of Knoxville, Tenn., formerly of Panton, Vt., and Portland, Maine, passed away on Wednesday, May 22, 2024.

Tammy was a member of Church Street United Methodist Church, as well as United Women in Faith. She loved hiking, gardening, biking, kayaking, and just being outdoors. In cooler weather, you could find her near the fireplace, reading her favorite book, or studying the Bible. Most notably, she was a Stephen Minister, a caregiver. She was also a Stephen Ministry leader, teaching others about giving care.

Tammy was a natural caregiver. It was a gift from God, and the ministry became her passion in later years. Tammy was preceded in death by her parents, Samuel Barrows and Patricia Smith Newton Barrows. She is survived by her husband, Larry Myrick; sons, Lance (Christine) Myrick and Jim (Gabbie) Myrick; daughter, Sarah Myrick; grandchildren, Alex Corsones and Connor Myrick; brothers, Craig (Kathy) Newton and Sean Barrows; sisters, Cherie Angier and Pam Shafer; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

The family would like to thank the Stephen Ministry, the Health Care Ministry, the Murphy Builders Pathfinders Sunday School, and the United Women in Faith at Church Street United Methodist Church. Also, much gratitude to pastors Catherine Nance and Tim Best.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 8, at 11 a.m., at Church Street United Methodist Church, 900 Henley St., Knoxville, TN 37902. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that donations be made to the Stephen Ministry or the Health Care Ministry at Church Street United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 1303, Knoxville, TN 37901.
