They went through the public schools together and began dating during their time at Garfield High School. Tina and Samuel were married in 1969. They recently renewed their vows and celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on August 23rd, 2019. Tina was always an active member of her community. When her children were in grammar school, she was elected president of the Montville Home and School association.

Tina was an active member of St. Gabriel, the Archangel in Saddle River, Holy Rosary in Greenwood Lake, NY, and St. Edwards in Palm Beach, FL, serving as a Eucharistic Minister. She served and prepared meals for the homeless at the Bergen County Community Action Center in Hackensack, NJ. Tina was a Dame Commander with Star of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre.

While her service to her community and church were noteworthy, her love for and dedication to her family was unsurpassed. Weekends at the Lake House were filled with love, laughter, and big family dinners. She always made holidays magical for her children and grandchildren and her favorite pastime was being surrounded by family.
