Tiffany Irene Engledowl, age 45, of Plano, Texas, stepped into her heavenly home on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, after a courageous and valiant battle with cancer. She was surrounded with infinite amounts of love, the same type she radiated out to the world herself.
Tiffany was born on January 9, 1977, in Texarkana, TX, to her parents, Tommy Engledowl and Debbie Miller Broussard. Born and raised in Texarkana, she was close to numerous cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents, all of whom shaped her into the family-oriented person she became. Her love for family was infectious, and she prioritized her family before anything else. She had a passion for music. She and her husband, Justin traveled the country, seeing as many concerts as they could. However, their all-time favorite band was the Avett Brothers.
Tiffany graduated high school from American Christian Academy and received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Texas A&M University at Texarkana. Tiffany started her career with Zale’s Corporation and worked with many who became great friends. She has continued her career as a Payroll analyst for Michaels Corporation.
God gave Tiffany a special gift, that of being a mama. Each of her four children, Levi, Canen, Harper, and Finley, are the light of her life. Her joy and pride in her children was magnetic, whether it be cheering them on at the ball field during little league or getting “lovins” or “sugars” from them as they sat in her lap. Her purpose was clearly to be a mama to her incredible children.
Tiffany was preceded in death by her brother, James Kelly Engledowl, her grandparents, Raymond and Karen Engledowl, Joe Miller, and Irene Mattson, and her step grandmother, Eulalie Broussard.
