Tammy Marie Blackwell of Baker, Louisiana entered heaven peacefully to rest in the arms of her savior on November 26, 2019. She was a devoted wife to her husband of 36 years, a wonderful mother to her two children, and the best “Mawmaw” to her five grandchildren, who she was most proud of. She called Cornerstone Fellowship her church home for more than twenty years and developed many lifelong friendships there. She began working for The Department of Public Works business office in 2013 just prior to her diagnosis of cancer and it brought her so much joy. She was an avid puzzle solver, enjoyed prayer time while coloring pictures, and was a perfect homemaker. She also enjoyed doing hair and makeup for weddings and events as she was a hairdresser by trade. Above all else, taking care of her family was her most favored job. Jesus was her savior and she wanted nothing more than to proclaim all that He had done for her so He would receive the glory. She radiated joy and love everywhere she went. She was preceded in death by her father, David Lyle Hoover Sr. as well as many Aunts, Uncles, and her Grandparents. She is survived by her husband Nalty Lynwood Blackwell Jr.; son Nalty Blackwell III and wife Jennifer; daughter Alexis Metz and husband Jonathan; Grandchildren Kinsley, Kennedy, Jaxson, Lennyn, and Demi; mother Ruth Green and her husband Troy; her brother David Hoover Jr.; her sisters Danielle Rowley and Cody Hoover; her half-sister Crystal Hoover; nine precious nieces and nephews; and many Aunts and Uncles.
