Tina Wise Halter, 74, of Weymouth, Massachusetts, a devoted and loving mother and grandmother, and dear friend to many, passed away from a sudden illness on January 6, 2024. She is survived by her daughter Lisa Reddick, of Weymouth, and Ed Halter, of Brooklyn, New York, and her grandchildren Tiana Reddick and Shawna Reddick.
Tina was more than a grandmother to Tiana and Shawna. She had helped raise them with Lisa in her house in North Weymouth, the same home Lisa was raised and grew up in. Lisa and Tina had been supporting the household together since Lisa's divorce in 2022, and Tina's divorce in 2008.
Retired since 2003, Tina contributed all of her Social Security and other benefits towards the mortgage of the house and bills and died with only $71 in a checking account. She was taken from us suddenly, and the household is financially unprepared for the expenses that lie ahead, which include not only Tina's wake and memorial but also the portion of the mortgage she would have covered when alive. We are worried that Lisa, Tiana, and Shawna can still have a roof over their heads as Shawna begins college and Tiana continues her studies and work.
If you would like to donate in Tina's memory, thank you from the very bottom of our hearts.
