Tina had a lifelong love of horses and successfully showed them on a national level. She treasured her family and time spent with them. Tina was a gourmet cook and a gracious hostess. She had an amazing ability to make friends and shared her quick wit and humor when you least expected it. She was the life of the party. Not only was she beautiful on the outside, but she was kind hearted, loving, giving and true. Anyone who spent time with Tina would quickly learn how strong willed she was. This quality served her well to the very end. Tina will be missed by all who knew her. She taught us to love more deeply, live more fully and laugh more often. Her family wishes to thank her many doctors, nurses, caregivers and friends who helped her. Funeral services will be held 1:00pm Wednesday at First United Methodist Church, Greene with Rev.
