Tina was born on January 22, 1964, in Alexandria, Virginia. To know her was to love her. You couldn't help but be endeared to Tina who was a loyal friend and faithful in all ways imaginable. She loved to give to others and did so without reservation. Working as a teacher's assistant, Tina was well-loved by her students. She greatly enjoyed her group of children on her school bus who affectionately called her "T".
Tina had a great passion for animals and was sure to take time to admire, pet, or love any that crossed her path. Her favorite destination was any place the cruise boat was going, she loved to take cruises, see new sights and meet new people. Tina also enjoyed motorcycle riding where she could enjoy the open road and the freedom and relaxation it brought her.
Tina was a loving wife of 10 years to her husband, Paul Prystash. She is also survived by her mother, Lois Wooldridge and husband Ken of Morehead City; and her dogs, Haddie and Kenda.
Tina was preceded in death by her father, Gary D. Hippeard.
