Hello, it's me, Dorothea Earnestine Hall Hilton, but you probably knew me better as Tina. I've always been one to take the bull by the horns, so I thought it fitting to pen my own farewell. Born on a sunny autumn day, October 22, 1964, I have now taken my leave from this world on October 16, 2023, just shy of my 59th birthday. But don't be sad; remember me with joy and laughter, for that's how I lived my life. \n\nAs a loving and resilient soul, I made my journey through life with an irrepressible spirit and a sense of humor that could lighten even the darkest moments. I was a homemaker by trade and a general life enthusiast by choice. From Stockton to French Camp, from the city lights of Las Vegas to the quiet streets of Los Banos, and finally to my home in Porterville, California, I embraced every place and every moment, leaving a little bit of my heart wherever I went.\n\nMy family was my greatest treasure, and I had the privilege of being surrounded by the best of them. My daughters, Kimberly Johnson and Gorgetta Limon, are a testament to that love, and they continue to be my pride and joy. I was preceded in death by my loving father Ted Hilton and loving mother, Dorothea Holmes, and my sister Renee Hilton Hardcastle and brother Little Teddy Hilton, who I am eager to see once again. \n\nI hope you remember me as I was: funny, resilient, and forever witty. I lived my life with gusto, loved with all my heart, and laughed as much as I could. My story doesn't end here; it continues in each of you, in every life I've touched, and in every heart I've warmed. So, celebrate my life, remember the joy, and keep the laughter going. \n\nPlease, take a moment to visit the memorial page, where you can share your memories of me.
