RANKIN, Tammy-Lynn Rankin  - Attended by her father, brother, friend Deanna & her boys, Tammy entered into a rest that life never afforded her, while holding Paul’s hand on Monday May 20th, 2019 at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville at the young age of 48. 

Beloved wife of Paul Scammell and loving mother to Ben & Jacob. 

She was the cherished daughter of Dan & Rosemary Rankin and dear sister of Tanya, Dan (Roberta) and James.  Dear daughter in law of Marilyn & the late Al Scammell and sister in law of Steve (Lisa). 

Tammy had many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and colleagues who will love her always. 

Tammy was employed by Durham Region for 27 years, first as a Social Service Worker at Hillsdale Long Term Care, then the final 9 years she worked in partnership with Durham Region Police as a Senior Safety Advisor. 

The tireless service she gave to the many seniors over the years did  not go unnoticed.  She was the recipient of the Ontario Medal for Citizenship, the Victim Services Award  of Distinction for the Attorney General and most recently the Celebration of Courage Award from Denise House. 

Her dedication to others was a lifelong trait, earning her the Terry Fox Scholarship Alumni Award in high school. 

She impacted the lives of many, and to all who knew her she will be lovingly remembered. 

A Celebration of Tammy’s Life will be held at ST. JOHN’S ANGLICAN CHURCH, 11 Temperance Street on Saturday May 25th at 10 am. 

In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made to a Memorial Fund for Ben & Jacob’s future.
