Tina Louise (Magaro) Martin
A Free Spirit –
Tina Louise (Magaro) Martin, age 59, of Camp Hill, passed away on Thursday, July 29, 2021. Tina was born on Monday, July 16, 1962, in Lewisburg to the late Frank A. Magaro, Jr. and Nancy R. (Hatfield) Magaro.
Tina’s survivors include her companion, Steven Masciocchi; her daughter Norelle Martin and fiancé, Marty McElroy, of Baltimore, MD; her four siblings: Frank Magaro, III and wife, Tammy, of Camp Hill, Vanessa Carroll and husband, Joseph, of Lewisberry, Vince Magaro and wife, Lisa, of Las Vegas, NV, Gia Katherman, of Harrisburg; several nieces and nephews; two great-nephews; one great-niece, all of whom she lovingly referred to as the littles.
Tina graduated from Northern High School, then received her degree in hospitality/flight attendant from Robert Morris College of Pittsburgh. Tina always had a larger-than-life personality; once you met her you never forgot her. No matter what was going on with your life, if you talked to Tina, you walked away with a lighter heart and a smile on your face. Perhaps one of her most memorable stories was of her cross-country bike trip from Central PA to Yuma AZ. Tina spent time camping under the stars and staying with strangers who opened their homes to her and her riding companion.
You may remember Tina from her early years helping her parents run the Pinchot State Park concession stand. In the winter, she worked and played at Ski Roundtop. She also owned and operated Martins Bike Shop in Dillsburg and worked in sales at the Bon-Ton. At the Camp Hill Farmers Market, Tina ran her nut shop, Aw Nutz. Perhaps you may have seen her just strolling around at the Broad Street Market.
Tina, you will be missed by many, but more importantly you will be remembered by all. With your beautiful red hair, big smile and very large personality. Her favorite saying this past month was, “Don’t worry, there are a lot of people sicker than me.”
Tina’s family will be remembering her life privately. Cremation was private.
