For most of her life, Tina resided in Lake View, SC. Tina loved the LORD and her family. She gave her life to the LORD in 1991 under the leadership of Pastor Roundtree. Tina was the foundation and joy of her family. Although she faced many illnesses, she never stopped imprinting joy, love, and wisdom into everyone she encountered.
Tina wanted her family to be there for one another, through her example that’s the legacy that she imparted. Tina’s life was so vibrant that she attracted everyone with her radiant smile, and her enduring heart. Tina was the glue that bonded her brother, sisters, nieces, and nephews. Her relationship with each one was special and unique, and she was the cornerstone of their strength.
