Tina graduated Green Bay West High School and chose to remain in the local area, subsequently entering the workforce. Through her many years in manufacturing she met the love of her life, Cecil. As well as developing other meaningful and lasting friendships with people such as Mary and Bob from Appleton Paper where she eventually retired.
Tina married Cecil Skenandore in De Pere on February, 28, 1987. She has two sons, Justice and Chad; Tina never failed to set a steadfast example of resilience, while maintaining a positive outlook, as matriarch, through their family's difficult challenges and life’s many changes.
Tina and Cecil built a horse boarding facility in De Pere where they successfully ran their business for twenty years, enabling her passion for horses to grow. Tina’s imprint extends beyond her travels across the country for horse shows with her son Chad, leaving her mark on so many lives in the horse industry. Over the years, she developed a very close relationship with Jerry Erickson, spending many years of her and her husband’s retirement wintering at his ranch in Texas. Tina's infectious personality is known worldwide through her massive online network of Corgi lovers and horse lovers alike.
Her family and countless friends find comfort in their memories of Tina's unforgettably charismatic and outspoken personality. Private services will be held by Tina's family at a later date.
