Tamara Jeanine Tepe Bright Obituary

Tamara Jeanine Tepe Bright, age 48, of Millcreek, died on Thursday, July 17, 2014, at home, surrounded by family. She was born in Pittsburgh, on October 1, 1965, the daughter of Joseph and Connie Lehner Tepe, of Erie.

Tammy graduated from Yough High School and University of Pittsburgh, with a teaching certificate and B.S. in math. She was a math teacher at Erie County Technical School. She was a member of Our Lady of Peace Church. Her time was happily consumed with all her children's activities. She was one that kept everyone together, which led her to be the matriarch of both the Tepe and Bright families. Her smile will be remembered by many.

Tammy was preceded in death by her maternal and paternal grandparents.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her husband, William, and their four children, Chris, Taylor, Alec, and Erin, all at home. She is further survived by her four brothers, Doug, of Erie, Matt (Diane), of Cincinnati, Ohio, Michael (Jennifer), of Pittsburgh, and Drew Tepe, of Pittsburgh; her sister-in-law, Bonnie Bright (Ed) Polaski, of Pittsburgh; and her in-laws, Bill and Donna Elder Bright, of Pittsburgh.
