My condolences to the family. She was a wonderful woman who poured her heart and soul into her children. I met her when Tyler was in my class at South Doyle Middle School. I always loved how involved she was and her she instilled her kindness and integrity into her children. My prayers are with all of the family at this time.
My condolences to you and your family on the passing of Tina. Words never seem adequate enough in moments like this. I pray for your family and friends a piece of mind, comfort, and strength through this difficult time.
Where do I begin. We met through “Hats” my brother and who would of ever thought we would be best friends. We shared so much. We know where to hide something or nobody else could ever find it it was our secret. I remember when we told Moms and Pops that you were out of school just so you could come shopping with us when they would
visit. I can’t believe you are gone I miss you every day. Until the very last minute I held on to the grasp of hope that you would get better. I will always love you my best friend.
This young lady was so amazing. During my 19 1/2 years at St. Mary's, she was my go to person at the Credit Union. She never forgot a name. Her smile was infectious and she always made each customer feel special. I absolutely adored Tina "Beana" is what I affectionately called her. I saw her a few years when she was first diagnosed. She was still a "bright light" in a world of darkness. Take your rest my friend "Tina Beana." You will truly be missed. I will pray for Comfort for this family.
Tina's mom, Alma, was one of my lifelong friends growing up in Fountain City. I used to keep Tina and Randy when they were young. The family is in my thoughts and prayers and I'm so sorry for your loss.

I remember Tina as my next door neighbor on Phillips Avenue. I remember sweet Tina as one of the most women I knew as child. I thought she was just so sweet and pretty. She always had her beautiful hair done and makeup. She shared my love of dogs and always let me visit with their dogs and their puppies!

Tina was the dearest and kindest lady that I know. She loved her family so much. My heart aches for them. I will miss you my friend. xo
Tina, what else can I say, girl? You were such a great friend back in the day, and a HUGE part of a most interesting “youth gone wild”!
And most of all, you were my little sister’s best friend; a sister from another mother! You’ve enriched all every life you’ve touched, at least those of us who knew your true value. Alas, the world will be a slightly dimmer, sadder place without your presence. You will always live on however in all of our hearts! Love and respect always, Krisha and Mike 🖤
Tina was a great friend through HMFCU. I was so sorry to hear of her passing. What a brave fight she fought.
