Born in Roanoke, VA, she was the daughter of Angharad Lea Carmichael Sinclair and the late Robert Rice Sinclair. As a teenager her family moved to Cincinnati, OH before relocating to Covington, KY where she graduated from high school. Tennette later moved to Roanoke, VA where she lived until moving to Fernandina Beach in 2004. While living in Roanoke she worked as a Barista and Baker for Mill Mountain Coffee.

She then transferred to The University of Florida where she majored in English, with a minor in Education.

Tennette was a lover of new and cutting edge music and through her work at Mill Mountain became acquainted with the latest upcoming performers. She was a friend to all she came in contact with and showed love and patience to all she knew. She loved life, cooking, her many friends, and her family. She will forever be remembered for her indelible smile, big heart and contagious laugh.
