Obituary for Tammy J. (Swavely) Scrobe

Tammy J. Scrobe, 48, of Fleetwood, was called home by her Heavenly Father on January 23, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of Daniel V. Scrobe III; they were married on September 2, 1995. Born in Reading, she was the daughter of Gary, Sr. and Linda (Duranto) Swavely, Fleetwood. She was the graduate of the following: St. Margaret’s Parochial School (1985), Reading Central Catholic High School (1989) and Alvernia University, B.S.N. (2005). In high school, Tammy played varsity softball/basketball. Tammy was employed at R. H. Palmer Company, Reading as a Candy Packer. As a nursing student, Tammy showed tremendous compassion and kindness to her patients.

Dear Dan and Caitlyn, your wife and mother was always a welcoming face at different events when you were younger Caitlyn! I truly enjoyed running into her and we had similar motherly concerns and commonalities. I am so deeply sorry for all of you. She was an incredible woman!

With the short amount of time I spent with her, I could tell Tammy was a sweet, caring, and loving person. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to take care of Tammy and getting to know her as an individual. I was given the pleasure to meet many of Tammy's loved ones and I could tell she meant a lot to many more. I am so sorry for your loss and my deepest sympathies to your family and friends.

Tammy was a student at Alvernia University when I first began teaching in the fall of 2004. She was, as her memorial announcement states, an incredibly compassionate nursing student, kind and skillful in her interactions with patients of all ages from diverse backgrounds. Tammy had a joyful and faithful spirit that was a powerful presence to those around her who were experiencing challenges (students/peers and faculty alike). I will always remember her with respect and deep fondness as a member of the BSN class of 2005, and send my sympathies to her family and friends. SHALOM. Debbie Greenawald, Chair, Alvernia University Department of Nursing
