Tinia was a woman full of color and life. She was always on the hunt for new adventures and fun. Her love of her children and family went far and wide. Through her journey in life, she was able to travel and see the world. The passions she shared with all of her children included one of her favorites, to visit the beauty and wonder of the Sonoran desert. One of her fondest memories in the desert was when she was visiting “Pretty Canyon” just outside of Tucson, AZ where her eldest son Brian lives. The lush landscape filled with cactus and trees and glorious mountains filled her heart with joy. Some of the best memories that Brian had was taking his Mom out on many 4x4 trails in the Tortalita Mountains. She enjoyed adventuring and scouting for the unique wildlife found in the Sonoran desert including jack rabbits, coyotes, javelina and definitely not her favorite, rattlesnakes. It was always something new around every turn of the trail and she loved every second of those adventures. She was a child all over again in the Sonoran desert. There is one special place in Pretty Canyon that she will always be. Surrounded by those gorgeous wildflowers and the never ending beautiful sunsets.
While with her middle son Kyle, one of his fondest memories that they shared was when they would go Black Friday Shopping as a young boy. They would always go to his favorite Toy Store and he would create a large wish list. Magically Santa would bring all of his new favorite toys and everything else that he had wanted some short time later at Christmas. She was a continuous presence in all of his sporting events, and military functions. Tinia could always be seen on the sidelines of all of her children’s events and she was known as one of the loudest voices in the crowd. Shortly before Kyle got married to his wife Alexis the three of them would spend lots of time together. One of her favorite times was when she invited Tinia over for their first dinner together as an engaged couple. One of Tinia’s famous quotes from the dinner was “Man you have a lot of candles Alexis, make sure you don’t burn the house down,” she said. This was her stating the obvious as Alexis at the time had over 30 in their small 600 square foot apartment. Something very special and memorable happened when Tinia visited with Alexis’ parents for the first time. Alexis’ parents live out in the country on 10 acres just south of Tucson, and their property has much native wildlife that visit frequently. Tinia was outside on the patio and screamed very loud. They all ran outside and said “what’s wrong!” She exclaimed “mmm-mountain lion!” and they all were in shock at her reaction. Mountain lions frequent the property almost weekly but she had never before seen one. So, they all laughed for a while at that, and still talk about it to this day.
There were many other fond memories shared by her children like her Daughter Brianna, the youngest of the three. Mom always took Brianna along on her craft store shopping adventures, where they spent sometimes hours waiting in line just to get fabric cut. She always had crafts she wanted to make and fabric she wanted to sew, often times not having enough time in a day to let all of her creativity out. Mom’s creativity and passion to create was unique, and was a skill she spent time sharing with her daughter and granddaughter. Mom would bring over small crafts, paints, and projects to share with her granddaughter, Addison. Together, they played with stickers, painted with water, and colored with crayons. They also loved playing with Play-Doh together, using cookie cutters to make flowers. Addison would ask Grandma to make bouquets out of Play-Doh every time Grandma came over to play, which became a special time for them to sit down and create together. Mom not only created memories with her arts and crafts, but also instilled a passion for creativity in both her daughter and granddaughter that will continue for generations.
