Tabitha Lynn Richardson (Tabby) passed away peacefully at the age of 36, on Saturday, October 9, 2021, in Littleton, Colorado. She was born in Kirksville, Missouri on November 13, 1984, to Kimberly Amann and David Richardson. She is survived by her parents, older sister Amy Vail, daughter, Samantha Davis and half brother, Jason Richardson. She will be remembered by many other friends and family members. She joins her loving step-father Sean Amann in Heaven, who shortly preceded her in death.
Tabby grew up in the Denver Metro area. She loved animals and would always bring creatures home. She dreamed of being a model when she was little. But at 4’11”, that proved to be a difficult dream to reach. She was a beautiful, fun-loving girl, her carefree, spunky and mischievous personality made life with her interesting. Sometimes fun, sometimes scary, sometimes taxing… but always interesting. She was regularly discovering new ways to keep people, mainly her parents, on their toes. Whether it was sailing down the Platte River in a box or driving in the car listening to loud music with her sister and friends, she was an adventure seeker.
She was very outgoing and could talk to anyone, and she often made new friends when she found herself in new environments. When she was just a young girl, she would make friends with homeless people and give them blankets and food. Later in life, she had her struggles. But yet her heart could be so large. When her demons were at bay, she was so thoughtful, caring and giving. Oftentimes she didn’t have much to her name, but was generous still with what she did have. She frequently tried to help people she barely knew, because she understood and shared their troubles.
Tabby had a creative side and frequently expressed herself by writing poems and songs, which she shared with her family and friends. She handcrafted gifts and cards for people; she loved to show them how much they meant to her.
Tabitha spent a few years in Joplin, Missouri. There she met the people at Watered Gardens Ministries, and they soon became her friends. They made a difference in her life, and in turn, she made a difference in theirs. Amongst the pain and struggle, there was joy.
In the end, she was back in Colorado, close to her mother, daughter, and sister.
Tabitha was loved and will be forever missed.
