After retiring, she moved to Hot Springs where she volunteered time at Potter's Clay and National Park Medical Center .

Tina made life around her beautiful. She enhanced the world with her caring spirit and artistic touch.

Her final, selfless act of generosity was to donate herself for medical science and education.
