Christina M. "Tina" Turek Obituary
Turek, Christina M 'Tina'

51, Appleton, passed away Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013 at Cherry Meadows Hospice surrounded by her family, following a battle with a rare aggressive form of ovarian cancer. She was born April 4, 1962 to Robert and Doris (Gehr) Turek in Green Bay, WI. Tina graduated from Appleton East High School and UW Lacrosse. She enjoyed: reading, exercising, competed in several marathons, did the polar plunge in Lake Michigan this year, and working and playing on her computer. Tina also loved to watch Judge Judy and she and her brothers and sister enjoyed the TV show Survivor each season and betting on the contestants.

She is survived by her mother, Doris, Appleton; a sister, Patty (Jim) McCook, Encinitas, CA; brothers: Tom, Kailua, Hawaii, Paul, Coalinga, CA, Dan, Madison, WI, Dave, Yuma, AZ, Bob, Appleton and Pete, Kimberly; one niece, Erin.

She was preceded in death by her father, Robert.

Per Tina's wishes she will be cremated and there will be no formal funeral services.

During her chemo she had her 'Chemo Bears' that were by her side and represented each session: Christopher, Clarence, Carlene, Clarice, Charles and Curt.

There are many people the family wishes to thank: the wonderful caregivers at Cherry Meadows Hospice, Uncle Robert and Aunt Betty Gehr along with Laurie Zeininger and Father Mike Ingold for their support. Also to Marcy Gehr for her compassion and care for Tina and Mom.

A big thank you to her YMCA Heart of the Valley Boot Campers who gave continual support: Jenni Vollmer, Nikki, Bill, Vicky, Shaun and others. And also her caring Tranquil Way neighbors.
