Mrs. Tammy F. Carrier, age 49, of New Bloomfield, Mo., passed away Sunday, January 17, 2021 at home surrounded by her loving family.

Tammy was born on January 5, 1972 in Gulfport, Ms., the daughter of Allen F. and Nancy F. (Ingram) Light. She was married on September 13, 2003 in Jefferson City, Mo. to Kevin Carrier who survives at the home.

In 1976, Tammy’s family moved to Rolla, Mo., where she was a 1990 graduate of Rolla High School. Right after graduation, Tammy was offered a job in Jefferson City, Mo. through the State of Missouri. For 30 years, Tammy worked her way up through different departments including Organ Donor Registry and Lead Licensing with the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. Most recently, Tammy was working as a Health Program Representative and had planned to retire this year. She cherished many of the relationships of her coworkers through the department and always looked forward to socializing with them.

A woman of strong faith, Tammy was a member of United Pentecostal Church in Jefferson City. She played the piano and was a praise singer with the church. She never failed to spread the word of God and encouraged her family to sing His praises with her.

Tammy had a passion and talent for scrapbooking. She often made scrapbooks for her kids and family that helped capture different events and stages of their lives. Tammy and her mom spent many hours working on scrapbooks together and traveling to scrapbooking shows, making endless memories together. Tammy liked the thrill of racecars and enjoyed going to different speedways in Missouri to watch sprint cars and modified cars race. When Tammy was younger, she could often be found on the ballfields playing softball at first base position and at the kitchen table playing games, especially Monopoly. Most of all, Tammy cherished the time she spent with her kids and family. She was an avid supporter of her kids and never missed an event for them. She was especially proud that two of her sons are serving in the United States Air Force.

Tammy will be remembered for her caring and creative nature, a strong faith in the Lord and love of her friends and family.

Survivors include: her loving husband of 17 years, Kevin Carrier; four children, Tracy Joslin of New Bloomfield, Mo., Colton Carrier of New Bloomfield, Mo., Ryan Joslin of Sedalia, Mo. and Austin Carrier of Montgomery, Al.; her parents, Allen and Nancy Light of Rolla, Mo; one brother, Lawrence Light (wife Heather) of St. James, Mo; two nephews, Brody Allen Light and Cooper Cash Light; and her father-in-law, Donald Carrier of Columbia, Mo; She had a special love and bond for her in-laws and all of her extended family. Tammy is also survived by a good friend who she thought of as a sister, Trish Eichholz.

Tammy was preceded in death by her mother-in-law, Virginia Carrier.

Visitation will be held at Freeman Mortuary from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Thursday, January 21, 2021. The general public is welcome to attend the visitation and her family has requested anyone in attendance to wear a protective mask.

As believers we have hope after the grave. But in these moments that hope doesn't quickly remove your desire to have your loved one here with you. Father God is faithful and as he promises us in psalms 23, he will lead us through the valley of shadow of death. In this place of grieving you will walk through, still missing your loved one, but one day soon Holy Spirit will remind you, "You'll see her again!" May the Blessings of God overtake you...

Kevin and family,
You have my condolences. I will miss Tammy's kind spirit. It was always a pleasure working with her through the years. She was always very kind and polite. May God bless you during this difficult time.

Kevin, Nancy, all family members,
I'm sorry I could not attend Tammy's services because I'm high-risk and i follow my doctor's instructions and stay home. i watched the service online, and really enjoyed hearing Tracy sing.

I wanted to say that though I'd worked with Tammy some at DHSS, I knew and enjoyed her best when we were all scrapbooking together. She fostered a relaxed environment where we could be creative and spend time with friends. I will miss her.
