Tia never married but held her brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews close to her heart. Throughout her life she had a happy and positive attitude and was eternally optimistic. She especially enjoyed teasing yet carried herself with elegance and expected good manners and civility from all family members. She enjoyed travel, opera, theater, baseball and especially flower arranging.
Although aging, she continued to live independently in her home until moving to Rhode Island with her extended family where she has resided for more than years. She now joins her brothers and sisters. Tia was our beloved aunt and great-aunt whose memory we shall cherish and who will be missed.
