We remember Tina as a mother, wife, sister, aunt, and beloved friend. She lived a beautiful 67 years surrounded by unconditional love. Tina was known for her infectious laugh and smile, impeccable appreciation for music, cheering loud and proud for her home teams, and for her nurturing heart.

As a young woman, her adventuring nature and strong will guided her to a new country where she built a beautiful life and developed everlasting relationships. From a small town in Kanchanaburi, Thailand to Portland, Oregon, her appreciation for life and unwavering love for others spans across nations and knows no bounds. She touched the lives of everyone she met, with sincerity and compassion.

Her coworkers that she came to know during her 29 years with U.S. Bank became much more than colleagues, and closer to extended family. Her customers would often wait patiently in line for her signature brand of friendly customer service and witty sports insights.

Those who knew Tina well may recall the many meals and laughs shared at her favorite restaurants over the dishes that warmed everyone’s hearts. It is always the meals shared together that are most satisfying to the soul and you could guarantee she always shared the best bite from her plate.

Remember Tina as she would have wanted, dancing amongst the crowd at a rock concert or cheering for her home team at the Rose Garden. She was a small woman with a big heart and enthusiasm for everything that life had to offer.

We are deeply grateful for our connection to a life that was lived with such warmth, humility, and passion. We will remember and honor her life today and always by holding close the moments we can recall her smile and laughter. Tina would not want it any other way, as she was a woman that lived in the moment and cherished the process of creating and sharing memories.

The heart and soul transfers as a whisper into a new wonderment but leaves a resounding echo in the spirit of those who remain. We hear things such as 'gone but not forgotten' , but with Tina, we know it is not a mere sentiment nor even an altogether true statement. Tina is not gone, and so, she can never been forgotten. Her smile, unwavering determination, and heart to care for others reflects in her daughter every moment of every day. Her joy and friendship continues on in the laughter of her friends and co-workers every time they recall a time when. Her overflowing life envelops a palette of beauty painted across the canvas in which she traveled, lived, and loved. Tina's world, while now transformed, is one she lovingly left for us to continue to enjoy, appreciate, and marvel. God Bless her soul. And God bless her family and friends who love her.

I remember her for her boundless love for her daughter, Selina.

What can I say, she has that radiant smile that simply brightens your day. I'll always see your smile through Selina, your absolute counterpart. I'll forever cherish those childhood memories, where I was able to take part on so many adventures w/you. It's hard to not become emotional as I remember or last conversation. It was long over due and became bitter sweet. It meant everything to me and I was never able to share that with you. Perhaps one day I'll get my chance as they say time is a healer and time will look after you. I can't wait for that to be true and until then, I love you Tina.

You're with Dad now, continue that eternal smile with him.

I had a chance to work with Tina in the last 8 years before she retired from 29 yrs working at US bank. She touched many hearts with her love and care.
She was a very special person that has been known as "my mom at work." We had fun talk, joked, laughed, sharing foods, shared feelings good days bad days about family. We cried with happiness when we received the special phone call that Tina received her highest reward and recognition for her great service at US bank in 2017 as a Legends of Possible winner. She got to go to Arizona for this honor recognition event with her daughter Selina. I was glad they had a good time.

Our team at 160th and Division loved Tina and we treated each other like a big work family. Tina loved to try different food and was a good cook. We loved her tom yum soup, cashew chicken, fried noodles, steam rice, durian sticky rice and snacks she bought for us to try. By the way, my parents love her durian sticky rice that we could not get it anywhere.
Because Tina loved to try food, she did not want to be on any restrict diet. I got to hear about her sharing "Selina checked on me and wanted me to eat this, not to eat that, etc..." Tina said that but she loved Selina the most and enjoyed every moment she had with Selina either by phone calls, visits, travelling or going to watch Blazer games.
We love you Tina and we will miss you a lot. You will be forever in our memory!

Tina was very near and dear to my heart. She would always greet you with the biggest smile. She was pure love. No matter how hard the day might've been, she never showed it. She always had a positive attitude. She would always treat me with chocolates. She knew how much I needed energy in the afternoon so she would always give me chocolates with that big smile of hers. I loved celebrating the birthdays with her. She was always there for her co-workers and friends. She never wanted to miss a fun occasion of good food and socializing.

We were all proud of her when she won the highest honor at US Bank-Legends of Possible. She deserved that win for her integrity, ethics, customer engagement and campaign contributions. She was so happy to share the big win with her daughter where they could enjoy 5-Star service together in Tucson, Arizona.

Selina, you are her love and joy. She was so proud of you! My heart goes out to you and your family. She will be missed but never forgotten.

Go Blazers! Go Ducks! I can still hear her say those words. Rest in peace, my friend. Until we meet again.

I will always remember Tina's infectious smile. She was an amazing person and I miss talking to her about the Blazer's game the next day. I will always admire her for never being afraid to speak her mind. She was so proud of you Selina. I will miss you Tina and I send love and prayers to Selina and the family.

Love, Ashley

Tina was our next door neighbor for the last 22 years. No one could ask for a better neighbor. Tina would do anything for us. She always got our mail, packages, paper, and kept her eye out when we were gone. She brought us a lot of bread! It was fun to watch Salina grow up into such a wonderful young lady because of her loving mother. We will miss Tina so much.

My tiny Tina will forever be in my heart and memory. I’m obsessed with learning new things to cook and she always gave me ideas and made me crack up in the process. Forever making pho the way she showed me and forever missing her coconut soup. She always supported my love for OSU even if she was a ducks fan! I still wear the bracelet proud. I will never forget the way she would jokingly show off her pearls to me. Such a charm! Forever will be missed, forever in my heart!

My name is Dana I live in the same cul-de-sac as Tina , I remember Tina being one of the first Neighbors to welcome us to the neighborhood. That always stuck with me and made me appreciate her friendship that much more. I believe she was like that with whomever she came in contact with , she will be missed .
