Tamara Stanley Ambrose, 61, of Richmond passed away Monday, November 7, 2022.
Tamara was predeceased by her mother, Ruth; and her brothers, Brett and Todd. Tamara is survived by her devoted husband, Andy; three children, Chelsea, Grady, and Riley; her father, Mortimer Stanley; and brother, Myles Stanley; mother-in-law, Georgene Ambrose; and brother-in-law Paul Ambrose.
Tami asked that her obituary be short- a welcome request because words are puny instruments for measuring humanity at its best. Briefly, here she is; Tami: charming, kind, loyal, brave, resilient, optimistic, wise, loving, generous, snappy, stylish, empathetic, encouraging, and hilarious.
Tami was an attentive listener, loving daughter, wife, mother, friend, sister, grateful taster of life’s simple pleasures, educator, and lifelong reader, learner, and nature lover. She was beloved by her children, adored by her husband, taken before her time, and will be truly missed.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, December 10, 2022, at Affinity Funeral Service, 2720 Enterprise Pkwy, Richmond, VA 23294. The family will receive friends following the service until 1 p.m.
