Tina Wittke, our loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away on July 1, 2018, while on a fun Wendover getaway with her husband, Harold, and her daughter, Suzanne, and son-in-law, Alex. Tina passed away in the arms of her loving husband, and if the choice were hers, we know she wouldn't have it any other way.
Tina and her loving husband, Harold Wittke, had an amazing love affair that spanned 60 years. Both were European immigrants who met in Sugarhouse, Utah, and it was love at first sight. Their love and affection for each other never wavered.
Tina was all about family. Her husband and family were the most important things in her life. She was a pure soul, totally without guile, and looked for the best in everyone. Tina was a talker. She loved talking with anyone and truly wanted to get to know them. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
Tina had the pleasure of working with her daughter Suzanne, and, oh what time they had--laughing with all the clients and just enjoying each other every day.
Tina is survived by her husband, Harold; daughters Yvonne Russell and Suzanne Hoggan (Alex); grandchildren Stacy Rolph, Brandon Russell, Archie Hoggan, Ryan Kendall, and Walter Hoggan; and ten great-grandchildren who will miss their Oma Wittke. Tina was preceded in death by her son, James Wittke.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to a substance abuse foundation of your choice. She would have loved this.
A celebration of her life will be held on Friday, July 6, 2018 from 6:00 until 8:00 PM at Starks Funeral Parlor, 3651 South 900 East, Salt Lake City, UT. Guests are encouraged to use the complimentary valet parking provided on the north side of the building.
