Due to her declining health, she moved to Atria Weston Place in Knoxville, Tennessee in early 2019. She was diagnosed with advanced ALS in May 2019.

The family extends a special thank you to the employees of Atria Weston Place, Smokey Mountain Home Health and Hospice, and Teresa Cooper of Maxim Healthcare for providing exceptional care to Tina in her final months.
