On September 2, 1949, she married Aristedes “Bill” Rego in a little church in the village of Padanaram, located in Dartmouth; Bill predeceased Tina in 2011. While living in Dartmouth she was a devoted full-time mother and housewife. Tina loved sewing, knitting, gardening, and camping with her family. She and her husband traveled the US in their motor home in the 70’s and 80’s. In 1988 they moved to Claremont, NH, to be close to their grandchildren. They enjoyed their little home in the country, where they gardened in the summer and camped in Florida during the winter months, enjoying country music, and singing around the campfire.
She leaves behind a daughter, Bonita “Bonnie” Miles, and her husband Jim, of Claremont, NH; her son Lawrence Rego and his wife Michele of Wingate, NC; three grandsons, Joel Pickering and his companion Kelly Sheehan of Northwood, NH; Jonathon Pickering and his wife Jenny of Weare, NH; Christopher Pickering and his wife Jessica of Bradford, NH; a grandaughter, Molly Rego Hawkins and her husband Brandon of Asheville NC; six grandchildren: Katrina, Arianna, Thomas, Sam, Brooke, and Haley Pickering.
There will be a private ceremony in the spring. Donations may be made to Sullivan County Nursing Home, Activities Dept. 5 Nursing Home Drive Unity, NH 03743
