Tamara Billingsley Morgan, 44 of Benton, went to be with her heavenly father on Nov. 6, 2014 surrounded by her family.  She was born Oct. 7, 1970 in Little Rock to Don and Hope Billingsley.  Tamara had a strong spirit and fought a rare disease for more than 29 years, and survived many critical situations but never gave up.  Finally her body couldn’t take it anymore and God called her home.  Tamara’s love for life and people was remarkable and she touched the lives of many with her courage and strength.
