Their second daughter Kimberly was born in 1990. In 1992, the family moved back to North Dakota to be near family and the raise their girls.
To know Tina was to love Tina. Her infectious laugh and sparkling eyes were what you noticed first about her. Tina worked for several years as a waitress and once Tina met you, you became an instant friend.
2018 brought change for Tina as she moved to Minot to embark on new adventures and a new job. Tina was employed by Dot’s Pretzels (a job she loved) until her death.
Tina enjoyed being in the outdoors on a nice sunny day, going to concerts, playing darts and all things “Bret Michaels”.
Tina’s favorite pastime was spending time with her two best friends, her daughters Stephonie and Kimberly, laughing and creating so many memories that will forever be cherished.
