She attended Central Baptist Church in Gainesville. After graduating from Gainesville High School she had
many jobs, starting at Tom Thumb Grocery in the bakery. She did catering, retail and worked as a florist.
For the last several years Tina worked for the Gainesville ISD as a maintenance technician. What she loved
most about her job was seeing the children and being with her co-workers. Tina always gave her 100
percent at any job she held — taught by her dad to always give your employer your best and to be proud of
your work.

Tina wouldn’t let anyone get anything over on her and stood up for what she believed. She made those
around her laugh and feel good whenever she was around and was always uplifting. When Tina was
diagnosed with cancer she would say, “It is what it is,” and the only time she got sad was thinking of
missing out on watching her grandchildren grow up. Tina is going to be greatly missed by her family and
friends.

Survivors include son Chad Lee and wife Amanda; grandchildren, Cheyenne, Colton, and Sage Lee; brothers,
Leslie and Joey Shell; sister, Missy Barthold and husband Steve; sister, Carol Robertson; very good friend,

and sister-in-law, Angie Shell.
