Tinamarie Lupo Kneidinger Obituary
Tinamarie Lupo Kneidinger, age 54, of Erie, joined the arms of Our Lord on Sunday, August 5, 2018, after a hard fought battle with stomach cancer. She was surrounded by her loved ones, while listening to all of her favorite songs.

She was born in Erie on January 7, 1964. A daughter of the late Silvestro and Maxine Lupo, who passed away in 2010. She attended St. John- Holy Rosary for elementary school and St. George for middle school. She was a graduate of Villa Maria Academy, class of 1982.

After high school, she worked at Northwest Savings Bank, North American Collection, and the Saint Vincent Urology Center. More than anything else, she found her passion as a homemaker for her husband and three children.

She was a fun, loving, selfless, confident woman, who brought joy to everyone she came across. Her smile lit up a room, and her laugh brought happiness to all. She enjoyed every moment with her family and friends, and preached about the importance of strong family relationships. She was an amazing mother and wife, who showed unconditional love, support, and laughs every minute of her life. Whether it was her children or her nephews, she was the loudest cheerleader in the stands, never missing a game. She loved camping, fires, and telling stories with her loved ones at the family camp, cottage, and Kinzua Dam. She loved her school "club" friends and always treasured the relationship her friends kept. Photography, art, painting, calligraphy, flowers, and listening and dancing to music were some of her favorite things. She never missed a 4:00 p.m. Judge Judy show, and loved watching movies at the drive-ins or at home with her kids. She loved animals and couldn't get enough of her Labrador Retrievers Rocky and Yogi. She always admired the beauty of the world, and took any chance she could to see the sunrise, sunset, moon, fall leaves, or snowfall.

She is survived by the love of her life and husband of 25 years, Frank V. Kneidinger III and children Frank V. Kneidinger IV, Noelle Rose Kneidinger, and Lauren Maxine Kneidinger. She is also survived by her older sister, Julia Brooks (Jim) of Mason, Ohio, and her two younger brothers, Dr. John A. Lupo (Kimberly) and Dr. Robert A. Lupo (Amy) both from Erie, Pa. She is further survived by her many nieces and nephews, including Nicholas and Jessica Pasquale, Alyssa Brooks, Anthony, John, Matthew, and Michael Lupo, Robert and Amanda Lupo, and many in-law relatives she loves dearly.

She will be deeply missed every day, but her spirit will live on in her family and friends, who love her unconditionally. With Nana, Papa, and Tina, we have the best "angel squad" possible, as Tina would say.

Friends may call on Friday August 10 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Francis V. Kloecker Funeral Home, Inc., 2502 Sassafras St. Erie, PA 16502, and are invited to a service there on Saturday morning at 9:45 a.m. followed by the Funeral Mass at St. George Church at 10:30 a.m. Send condolences to www.kloeckerfuneralhome.com.

Burial will be private in Mary Queen of Peace Cemetery to join her parents at a later date.

Memorials may be made to ProjectPeriwinkle.org in support of stomach cancer awareness and research.

The family would like to give a special thanks to Kara Oosterkamp, Tinamarie's sister-in-law, for supporting her and helping the family daily for the past several months, as well as the rest of Tina's siblings, in-laws, and closest friends.
