A celebration of Tina's life will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at 11:00 AM at the Appleton Community Evangelical Free Church, 2490 West Capitol Drive in Appleton, with Pastor John Hartenberger officiating. Visitation will be held at the church on Saturday from 9:30 AM until the time of the services. In lieu of flowers a memorial fund has been established.
Tina would further like to thank the members of her church for all their help throughout both her and her husband's fight against cancer. When you remember Tina, always remember her with a smile, she wanted to leave this world laughing and had no regrets in her life. She always felt that she "had really lived" and she is now at peace with the love of her life.
A special Thank You to the wonderful care provided by Southern Care Hospice and Grand Horizons Nursing Home.
