Tamara L. "Mimi" Day

A Teacher takes a hand, opens a mind, & touches a heart. 

Tamara L. “Mimi” Day, 70, of Kingsport, Tennessee passed away peacefully on Friday, September 9, 2022 with her family by her side. Born in Bristol, Tennessee on September 23, 1951, a daughter of the late Mack and June Hamilton, she has resided in this area her entire life.  

She graduated from Central High School in 1969. She attended Hiwassee College, George Peabody College and graduated from East TN State University.  She retired from Sullivan County School system following 30 plus years of service as an elementary school teacher at Indian Springs. Tamara was a member of Indian Springs Christian Church, working as church secretary for several years. 

She will be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mom, “mimi”, sister and friend who loved to go to the beach, listen to her record player, play with her dog “Mikey”, loved her grandchildren and loved UT Vols (football and basketball). 

The family would like to extend a special thank you to Johnson City Medical Center ICU staff, who helped her unconditionally until her passing. 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Mike Day. 

Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Josh Brown (Tonya) of Kingsport and Jason Brown (Stephanie) of Jonesborough; grandchildren, Joslyn, Jax, Dayton and Carter Brown; brother, Rick Hamilton (Jan) of Kingsport; and pet, Mikey.

The family will receive friends from 5 – 7pm on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at Indian Springs Christian Church. A Celebration of Life will follow with Minister Mike Beverly officiating.  Special music will be provided by Dick and Anita Basham and Paul and Dixie Mahaffey.  

Burial will follow graveside services at 11am on Wednesday, September 14, 2022 in East Lawn Memorial Park.  Those attending the graveside service are asked to meet at the funeral home by 10am and then proceed to the cemetery. 

Pallbearers will be Josh Brown, Jason Brown, Jax Brown, Dayton Brown, Buddy Brown, Will Baker, Stephanie Brown and Rick Hamilton.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing may make memorial contributions to Indian Springs Christian Church, 5536 Kiowa Street, Kingsport, TN 37664

Tamara was such a joy to work with at Indian Springs. Her love for the kids and her beautiful smile were endearing. Our prayers go out to her family for comfort and sweet memories. She and Mike were so much in love with each other and their families. May God bless you all.

Joshua, Jason and grandkids, Stephanie and Tonya , I am so sorry about Tamara’s passing. She was a true friend to all who knew her. She and Mike were true friends for many years. She loved all of you so much and those 4 grandkids were the light of her eye. Love you. Take care of little Mikey. Prayers for you all.

I met Tamara years ago at the church. It was before Mike and Tabby came so it has been awhile. She was always right there to meet you and so very nice and of course there was Mike. He was just a wonderful friend right from the start. I am in SC now so can't be there but I know the church will miss her so much. She was one of the devoted members there so she will be missed job wise and friend wise. Condolences to all the family members and to Mikey.

Tamara Lynn Hamilton introduced herself to me at the fountain at Hiwassee College in the Fall of 1969. We were inseparable for the next two years. Our two hearts became one and we were both each other's first true loves. That was shared in one of our last conversations. She will always be in my heart.
