Tina enjoyed life with her husband living in the Philadelphia area after retirement and eventually moved back to the Pittsburgh area closer to family.  They enjoyed a home in The Villages, Florida in the winter months playing lots of golf with good friends.  Family and friends were very important in her life and giving to everyone always made her smile.
