April 10, 1957 – August 22, 2020
Tina-Joy was born in England and immigrated to Canada at the age of six with her family. The family settled in Ontario and that is where Tina spent her formative years.
As a teenager Tina experienced a major loss when her older brother Tony was killed in a car accident. His memory was with her all her life.
It was in Ontario that she met the love of her life, Robert Kiff, and the couple moved to BC to start their life together. They settled initially in Penticton where Tina became an activist. Her passions were women’s rights, protection of the environment and animal rights.
After ten years the couple moved to Port Alberni and purchased a small farm in the rural district of Beaver Creek. Life was good and the couple enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing and hiking together.
In 2010, Robert was diagnosed with a debilitating disease and Tina was steadfast in granting him his wish to remain in their home until the end.
Robert passed away in December 2014 and Tina was grief stricken and exhausted.
She courageously carried on and tried to rebuild her life but her health deteriorated and her heart could not sustain her.
She will be missed by her family in Ontario and many friends in British Columbia.
