Tina was the mother of the late Deanne Morgan Fontes and the grandmother of the late Dean Zachery McCullough. Tina, a mother, a mentor, and a friend to all. She had struggled through the beginning of life as some do. She had become a P.C.A. as the loving nurturing side of her had intended. She was a lover of music and practically married to a radio. If you ever needed to know how to cook a meal she was the woman to call. She would have your back always and take the shirt off her own if you needed it. Carnivals and funky rides were a must as well as a ton of bad horror movies. When you were down and out and needed somewhere to go you would call Tina. Her kindness and generosity knew no bounds and will live on in the epitaph written here and throughout the world with the ones she loves so dearly. As she would say it is not the end but the beginning of a new chapter in life for us all. There are no words left. Embrace the feelings in your bodies, minds, and spirits and just remember Tina loves you all!
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Tina's Life Celebration on Tuesday, February 16th from 11:00 am until 12:30 pm at the McKenna-Ouellette Funeral Home, 327 Hildreth Street, Lowell.
