Tange Jean Oliver

Tange Jean Oliver, 44, of Russellville, passed away at her residence Oct. 2.

Tange was a 1995 graduate of Phil Campbell High School. She was married to Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver. She enjoyed working at Scruggs Farm Warehouse in Tupelo, and she was a member of the Eastern Brahman Breeders Association.

Tange was a special woman who loved everyone she came in contact with. She had a heart of gold, never seeing differences in people, just wanting to help anyone she could.

She was feisty and loved life, and she always had a soft spot in her heart for any animal. She brought home numerous animals just because they needed taking care of.

She was an exceptional wife and mother and a best friend to all three of her children.

She leaves her family and friends with so many wonderful memories.

Her life motto was “always build a better boat.”

She is preceded in death by her father, John Burns Howard, and grandparents, Mary Ruth Weeks Williams and Flora and Huey Howard.

She leaves to cherish her memory her husband of 24 years, Shannon Mark Oliver; children, Johnna Grace Oliver (Jacob Devaney), Sterlyn Brooke Oliver (A.J. Sanchez) and Brannon “Bubba” Mark Oliver; grandchild, Kash Devaney, and a new grandchild on the way; mother, Jean Howard; brothers, Nickie John Howard (Jane) and Craig Howard (Pam); in-laws, Silas and Annette Oliver; sister-in-law, Sharon Oliver Hatton (Franky); several nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.

She also leaves her beloved Brahman cows, Rosemary, Sage and J.B.

The visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 8 at Calvary Baptist Church in Russellville. The funeral will be at 2 p.m. at the church with Bro. Brian Welch and Bro. Clint Holcombe officiating the service. Burial will be at Blue Springs Cemetery.

The pallbearers will be Nickie Howard, Craig Howard, Jacob Devaney, A.J. Sanchez, Robbie Tidwell and Bradley Tidwell.

The family would like to extend a sincere thanks for all of the condolences and prayers during this time.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation in Tange’s memory to Kruizn for a Kure Foundation, a charity of your choice or to the Tange Oliver Memorial Scholarship Fund c/o Eastern Brahman Breeders Association. This will be an annual Scholarship, and recipients will be those who exemplify the qualities that Tange was known for: kindness, generosity, exuberance and integrity.
