Tina came into the world on April 13, 1925 in Lewiston, MT and was raised in Great Falls. At the age of 13, Tina’s mother passed away and she remained at home to help raise her sisters. She worked at the Deaconess Hospital for 15 years to help support the family. In June of 1942 she was married to George Pepos in Belt. They enjoyed 38 years of marriage before his passing in 1980. Tina was blessed to meet another man whom she fell deeply in love with, George Leslie McKamey, and the two were married in 1983. After 27 years together, George passed away, leaving Tina as a second time widow.

Tina’s life was in her family. Although money was tight, she had no problem making things fun, taking the family on picnics and always making family time special. She enjoyed flower gardening and loved to cook, which was great because George loved to eat!

Special thanks go out to the staff at Missouri River Manor and Park View for the great care they took of Tina.
