Tommie had a love for life and was devoted to her family. She always had the biggest smile on her face, never met a stranger and was always happy.  In 1977, she graduated high school from North Pemiscot High School in Wardell, Mo. Upon graduation, she started her college career at LSU in the fall of ‘77, then transferred and graduated from Arkansas State University in Jonesboro, Ark.  For the last 16 years Tommie has worked as the executive legal assistant to Taylor Townsend at his law firm.

Tommie was an avid animal lover.  Her love for horses and dogs was like no other. She enjoyed barrel racing and won several titles, saddles and buckles to prove it.  In her free time, she loved to travel.  Her kind heart and loving nature led her to put others before herself. She was known to have the best smile and the best biscuits. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
