Tina was a kind and generous wife, Mother Sister, Aunt, Cousin and Friend to all. Tina was always ready to share her love of Life, with laughter, joking and cooking with her family and friends, especially at Holidays with great, joyful feasts. Tina especially loved to dance, always ready to "Lindy" when the right song came along. Though not a fan of long hikes in the woods, Tina could get squirrels to eat out of her hand and had a great love for the many animals she raised. Tina was an avid gardener, growing food and canning for her large family. Surviving are her sister, Leticia Lee, Brother-in-law Tom, and nephews Tommy and Ryan.
