  1. candleMom, You have probably eaten 5 pounds of chocolate, danced with the angels, and spoken to most of the people in Heaven by now! We will miss your warm smile, hearty laugh, and kind heart, but I know that the Blessed Mother has welcomed you home. We love you, Mom. Watch out for all of us. God bless.
    Love and peace, Marie and Michael

  2. Today family and friends will pay tribute to an amazing woman, Jane Tinti (maiden name Rock). She imbued her five children and eighteen grandchildren with courage, self-confidence, and great love to be a force of good in the world. With the support of her devoted husband of 65 years, her younger brother, children, and many health care workers who for over 30 years guided her struggles with Parkinson’s disease and other health problems she inspired countless people with her strong spirit and cheerful grace on how to live a full and meaningful life in the face of great disabilities. Personally I have no feeling of loss by her passing but instead reflect with great gratitude the gifts she has bestowed upon me and others she came in contact with, modeling how best to live life and confront adversity. She left this world with love in her heart and an undaunting spirit.

  3. How incredible to have lived a life being loved so deeply.
    66 years of marriage
    5 children
    18 grandchildren

    Grateful to have spent every moment with you and smiling because you are finally free from your body on earth. Now your spirit can run wild. See you in Arizona, Grandma🤍
    Rest In Peace 🕊

  4. candleShe led a very good life. She was very friendly and talkative. She led by example and tried to be the best Catholic woman she could be. Her faith was important to her. She married young (19) and had children right away. She had 5 children at age 28. She was determined to get all her children thru college. She would take her 5 active children thru museums and other educational experiences. With this background dealing with 5 unruly children, she went on to become a teacher’s aide. She had a bit of Tom Sawyer in her because I think that she got the kids (high school) to do her job.

    She battled Parkinson’s since 1990s. Dad took care of her for all those years. The house became a medical facility that included dancing and singing.

    A car accident ended her ability to eat and talk. That must have been very hard to deal with, since she loved meeting and talking to people. Her death was not unexpected. She had many health issues and her quality of life suffered greatly. All she had was her love for her husband, her children, and grandchildren. That was enough for many years. She will be missed, but it was her time to leave this world and enter the next.
