Tina combined a successful career with raising her children and maintaining her home. Tina worked for various state agencies and retired after 33 yrs from the Department of Health where she was a medicaid claims supervisor.
Tina loved to attend the various events her children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews and grandniece participated in. Whether it was basketball, football, baseball, lacrosse, volleyball, softball, cheerleading or dance recitals, she would be there cheering them on.
Tina's greatest passion beyond her family was her home. She was an avid gardener and landscaper. She was also a great interior designer and took much pride in maintaining both the inside and outside of her home.
Tina also loved to host parties and her annual pool party was the hottest ticket in town. She would spend weeks readying her house and preparing the food. She would also make sure the karaoke machine was in good working order and she had the latest music available.
