Tammy Fenelus

November 20, 1962 — June 16, 2024

Upper Marlboro

Tammy Fenelus was born on November 20, 1962, to Mary N. Reaves (nee Ransom) and Sanford E. Chambers in Washington, DC, where she spent most of her life surrounded by family and friends. A beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away peacefully on June 16, 2024, at the age of 61.

Tammy was born and raised in SE Washington, DC. She then later moved to Temple Hills, MD in 1976 where she attended Potomac Sr. High School. During her youth, she attended the Holy Commandment Church of God under the leadership of the late Bishop Thomas Conway. There, she later met her husband. Tammy married the love of her life, Willy Fenelus, on October 8, 1983. She created a home filled with love, warmth, and devotion. Together, they built a beautiful family, raised six wonderful children and cherished 41 years of marriage. Years later, Tammy joined the Bethel Commandment Temple of God under the leadership of the late Bishop Theodore L. Jones. Tammy’s pride and joy were her six children and her seven adored grandchildren. She cherished every moment spent with them, watching them grow and thrive.

Tammy was a devoted homemaker who found great joy in taking care of her family. In 2001, Tammy later joined the Bethel Deliverance Outreach Ministries (BDOM) under the leadership of Bishop Alonzo M. Walker, Sr. She was an active member of her church, where her faith and love for God were evident to all who knew her. Tammy also enjoyed traveling, with Cancun, Mexico, being her favorite destination, where she created many cherished memories with her loved ones. In her downtime, she found comfort and relaxation in watching her favorite TV shows.

Tammy is survived by her loving husband, Willy Fenelus, and their six children: Shannah Bowles, Erica Fenelus, Rebecca Ramey, Willy Fenelus Jr., Dominique Fenelus, and TiLisna Fenelus. She was also a cherished mother-in-law to Brandon Bowles and Darrell Ramey. Tammy's legacy lives on through her seven adored grandchildren: Joseph Bowles, Princeton Bowles, Amara Bowles, Kingston Bowles, Eric Fenelus, Austin Calderon and Ayonna Ramey. She also leaves behind a multitude of other cherished people that includes her 5 living sisters, 2 brothers-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews, church family and friends.

Tammy’s fiery spirit, unwavering love, and dedication to her family will be deeply missed. She leaves behind a legacy of compassion, faith, and familial devotion that will continue to inspire and guide those she loved.

A memorial service to celebrate Tammy’s life will be held at The Sanctuary at Kingdom Square on Wednesday, July 3, 2024 at 11:00am in Upper Marlboro, MD 20772. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Black Women’s Health Imperative in Tammy's honor.

Rest in peace, Tammy Fenelus. Your love and legacy will continue to shine brightly in the lives of those you touched.

The Fenelus Family extends their heartfelt gratitude to all who have offered their love and support during this difficult time.
