Tammie Alysse (Sikora) Sexton
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Tammie (Sikora) Sexton on November 1, 2023. She was surrounded by her loved ones, who are eternally grateful for having known her, despite her time on this earth being far too short. Tammie truly embodied the spirit of a warrior, was fiercely loyal, a loving family member and friend, and a constant source of joy to all who were fortunate enough to know her.
Tammie was born on June 21st, 1987, to Kathy and Bob Sikora, a day that marked the beginning of a life filled with boundless determination and resilience, unwavering love, and dedication to her family and friends. She was one of four children, sisters Kristy and Stacie (Luke) and brother Stephen (Patience), all of whom shared a close bond and friendship. She grew up in Carrick, attended St. Basil's Elementary School and Seton-LaSalle Catholic High School, and then went on to attend St. Francis University, earning a bachelor's degree in education.
Tammie started her teaching career in Maryland before returning home, taking a position with the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, where she met her future husband and love of her life, Barry Sexton. In November of 2022, she delivered a beautiful baby boy named Dominic James. Tammie's marriage was a true example of soulmates destined to love one another forever. Her commitment to and unconditional love for baby Dominic was incredible - a mother's love is a mother's love, but Tammie always went above and beyond. Their family of three was truly her life's purpose.
Throughout her life, Tammie built a large circle of friends. She was fiercely steadfast and loyal, unwaveringly dependable, and truly thoughtful and sincere, always willing to listen, yet unafraid to speak her mind. She had an uncanny ability to bring fun and laughter to everyday activities. A day with Tammie was the best day.
Tammie's memory is a reminder that life is a gift, to be cherished and celebrated, no matter the circumstances. Her strength, love, and determined spirit will continue to inspire us to face life's challenges with grace. While we mourn the loss of an incredible soul, we also celebrate the life of a true warrior, a devoted family member, and a constant source of joy. Tammie may have passed from this world, but her spirit and the love she shared will forever remain in our hearts.
Tammie is preceded in death by her grandparents Jack and Margaret Wolfe and Frank and Regina Sikora, her godfather and uncle Jim Sikora, and her father-in-law Barry Sexton Sr.
