Tommye was born February 3, 1940 in Light to the late Lawrence “Tom” and Elwanda Sawyers, where she grew up and attended Light, Greene County Tech Schools and Arkansas State University. Tommye was a member of Central Baptist Church in Jonesboro. She served the Lord in many Southern Baptist Churches, Bloomington, IN; Danville, IL; Champaign, IL; Louisville, KY; Lafayette, IN, Kalamazoo and Flint, MI; Olympia Fields, IL and Jonesboro.

She loved the nursery and kids, and greatly loved the Sparks in Awana’s, which she led for ten years at Central Baptist in Olympia Fields. She spent many years in Bible Study Fellowship in four different states. Tommye participated in many discipleship programs, Master Life, Parenting by Grace, Covenant Marriage and many more through the years. She ministered to many people over the years, in her service to the Lord. She loved God’s Word, her grandchildren, her family and all kinds of crafts.

They were blessed with three children; Rick Fielder (Pam) of Indianapolis, Indiana, Tom Fielder (Laurie) and Susan Fielder all of Jonesboro; the loves of her life, her two grandsons, Gideon and Sawyer; two step-grandsons and five great-grandchildren.
