MORRILL — Tambara Lynn Arnold, 30, of Morrill passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 19, 2022. Our family is devastated and shocked by this loss.

Tambara was born Sept. 7, 1992, in Waterville to Carolanne Patterson and Doug Arnold. She graduated from Mount View High School in 2011 and went on to attend Washington County Community College. From there she held a variety of jobs, ranging from customer service, working with special needs, to being a credit analyst for Bank of America and most recently as a transportation broker for Scramco Logistics. She greeted each day with a positive attitude, excelled at every job she held and was loved dearly by her co-workers. She would often share her excitement over her achievements with “I crushed it this month!”

However, her greatest achievement in life would be the birth of her son. From the day he was born Jan. 8, 2017, until her passing, there wasn’t a moment when he didn’t feel the love that she had to give. She kept many of us entertained with the moments of his life that she captured and shared on social media. As much as a mother and son’s bond could be, they were each other’s best friend!

Besides her son, one of Tambara’s greatest passions in life was spending time with her brother Mike, who lives with disabilities. She cared for him deeply and she was always looking for new adventures and experiences she could share with him.

From a young age, Tambara displayed a rare form of compassion and love for all people no matter their color, shape, size or beliefs. Everyone she met mattered to her. That attribute grew to become one of her most endearing qualities with which she touched so many lives.

Tambara’s friends would describe her as genuine with an incredible sense of humor and easy-going mannerisms that were magnetic. She loved a reason to get dressed up, music, working on her body art, and staying busy with new projects. She always showed up for the people she loved and she was always checking in just to see if they needed anything, even if it was just encouragement.

Saying that “Tam” will be missed is truly an understatement. Our world is a lot less bright without her smile to greet us.

She leaves behind to carry on her legacy of love, her son Drake Richard Bradstreet and his father Kent Bradstreet. Her mother Carolann Patterson and her husband Keith. Her brother Mike Arnold. Drake’s grandparents Mark and Cathy Bradstreet. Her stepbrothers Isaiah Patterson, Tyler and wife Jennifer Patterson. Her best friends Christy Cram and Paula Bark. Special friends Malibu Anthony and Shelly St. John. A host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and countless friends, neighbors, coworkers, and those she touched.

“And I’ll take with me the memories,To be my sunshine after the rain.It’s so hard to say goodbye to yesterday.”

A celebration of her life will be held on Sunday, Jan. 15, from noon to 7 p.m. at the All Play Family Center, 49 Searsport Ave., Belfast.
