Tina M. Rodgers

October 2, 1959 — March 13, 2024

Lowellville- Tina Marie Rodgers, 64, passed away on Wednesday, March 13th, 2024 at Shepherd of the Valley in Boardman after a long illness. With a mouth like a sailor and a heart of gold, Tina loved everyone in her life and considered them all family, whether they were related or not. Tina was born October 2nd, 1959, at Sharon Regional Hospital in Pennsylvania to Donald L. Garrett and Nancy Lee (Crider) Garrett. Tina graduated from Lowellville High School in Lowellville, Ohio in 1979. 

Throughout her life, Tina worked various jobs in the restaurant business, most recently at Morgan Oil. She will always be remembered for her generosity and giving nature. Tina had a passion for crafts and spent many hours making flower arrangements for family events. She also painted ceramics, would bake for everyone, and enjoyed bingo, the casino, and scratch off lottery tickets, where she was very lucky more than once.

Tina was a loving wife, sister, aunt, and friend. She is survived by her sister, Cheryl (Bill) Burrows of Lowellville, Robert (Lindsey) Garrett of Campbell, and Brian (Roberta) Garrett of Struthers, many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and all of her family in Edinburg and “up North”. Tina most recently resided in the Lowellville Park apartments, and she adored the friends she made there, especially Sue, Annie, Mike, Rosie, and Sandra. Her favorite thing was coffee with the girls. Though Tina never had children of her own, she loved all of her nieces and nephews as though they were her own, and kept every card, gift, memento, and picture that was ever given to her. She held a special place in her heart for her three great nieces Julie, Joanna, and Kennedy “Boog” who she called “her girls”.

Besides her parents, Tina is preceded in death by her husband Robert “Slim” Rodgers.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation and thanks to the wonderful staff of Shepherd of the Valley in Boardman and Hospice of the Valley for their kindness and compassion in helping to take care of Tina in the last month. They went above and beyond for not only Tina, but also for the family.
