OBITUARY

Christina Helen Mead

October 18, 1964April 22, 2020

It is with love that the family of Tina Mead announces her passing on April 22nd, 2020 at Oshawa’s Lakeridge Health in her 55th year. She was a trailblazer, ahead of her time, a generous soul and leaves us with such an amazing legacy. Her quest to push envelopes and seek answers to questions was always at the forefront of what drove her to strive and do better; she was always searching for “the why”. Anyone who was lucky to know Tina understood how important her grandbabies were to her. Her mom, Marilyn Campbell, will deeply miss her but seeks solace that Tina is with her father, Jack Mead Sr. Tina is survived and loved by her son David (Ashley), her mother Marilyn, her siblings Cindy (Joe), Margo (Mike), Tracy (Jim), Jack and treasured by her grandchildren Alyssa and Nolan. She was dearly loved by all and will be greatly missed. A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later time and will be open to all.

Tina and I met over ten years ago while getting pedicures. Tina wanted to start a Medi Spa business. I had just started my own renovation company. We shared contacts and kept in touch. I started getting facials fromTina and I realize now that the facials were fabulous but our time together was precious. I cherished our time together and looked forward to every appointment. I will forever miss our conversations. She loved Ashley David and her grandchildren. RIP Tina. I am still in shock that we will not be together again

I am devastated by the news of Tina's passing. I was a client of Tina's and saw her every Sunday for 6 years. She was like family to me. I'll never forget the last time we spoke on the phone, it was Easter Saturday. We spoke for just over an hour and had lots of laughs. She always had such a refreshing perspective on life.

Every week we shared stories and laughed together. One thing that was always clear to me, was the love that she had for her family. I especially loved hearing stories about her grandchildren.

Tina was an amazing person with a kind soul. She will forever be missed and loved.

I was both shocked and saddened to learn of Tina's passing. Having been a client of hers for the past 4 years we shared many stories, mostly about family. Tina got me through a very rough time in my life and saw me through some major family events for which I am forever grateful.
I looked forward to our appointments and learning about her latest thoughts and experiments, as well as hearing all the fun stories about her grandkids whom she loved dearly. She definitely stood out in her field and I am so grateful to have found her. She will be missed by many. Rest peacefully my friend 💗

I was so saddened to learn of Tina’s passing. I know her illness was brief, and I think it was a shock to all of us, but I’m at peace knowing she is no longer suffering.

I have been a client for the last few years and our weekly appointments were something I so looked forward to, especially finding out what her next big theory was — knowing I was likely one of her guinea pigs. Tina pushed the envelope on all things skin, and her quest for knowledge was never-ending. Although the best conversations were surely about what Alyssa and Nolan has been up to, or her ‘boyfriend’ Pete Buttigieg.

My heart grieves for her grandkids, David and Ashley, and all of her siblings and family. Praying for your strength at this difficult time, and I know her legacy will carry on in the hearts of all who knew her.

Marilyn, Cindy, Tracy and Margo - A friend from the Stockdale area text me about Tina passing away. I am so sorry for each of you as I remember how close you were as a family as sisters growing up. I have so many memories and photos of those days when you Cindy, Tracy, Margo and Tina would come up to play with Paula, John and Susan. The photo you shared of Tina with a grandchild is beautiful and it is obvious she was loved and will be always. Also, the photo of Margo and Tina then Cindy and Tina are wonderful expressions of how close you remained. Many years have passed since we moved away nevertheless my memories as well as Paula, John and Susan remain a big part of our lives including Tina. Take care of Mom and each other. Patricia Houde

She loved her family so much and spoke of them often. Blessings to the family my heart goes out to you all.

Tina was an extraordinary person, always smiling and forever giving to those around her, especially her grandchildren. They were her world, as was Dave and Ashley.

Whenever we were together, we enjoyed some truly wonderful chats. I'm going to miss those as well as her bubbly personality. Our sincere condolences to you all.

Our love, Dennis & Shirley

For most our life with saw each other once in a while but when we did we had so much fun. Then I remember when you moved in with us when you where around 17 and at that time you showed me your passion to be someone in this world and educate yourself through your questions and curiousity. Then you moved out to move on with life. Then the best thing that happened in your life came along -David. Our connection was kind of lost during this time but not forgotten. I remember my dad taking David to see the maple leafs and coming home saying David was so shy and quiet, so different then his mom. Weddings and funerals seem to be the only thing that brought everyone together, but when we saw each other the laughs and stories started right away
Two years ago I started coming to see you with Rylee as guinea pigs for you and your search for knowledge. You said you would make me look 30 again and that Rylee would be pimple free by the end of grade 10. You were amazing with both Rylee and myself. You made us feel good about ourselves and how we looked. I loved seeing you every couple of weeks to talk about life and family and oh the laughs we had. Thank you for giving me the gift of seeing you one last time taking you for treatment when again we had a few laughs and a couple serious moments . You told me before getting out of my car that you feel your dad around you and I know that gave you peace. Until we meet again!!!
Your cousin Kelly
