Tisha loved GOD and she spoke with him every day. She loved life and dedicated every moment to being the best mother she could be to her children. Not only was she their friend, she was their cheerleader and protector. Tisha was definitely a momma bear who spent most of her time with her kids as she loved being a mother. On the rare occasion that she was not with her kids, she enjoyed spending time with friends and family. As a woman, she was the epitome of integrity. A woman of her word who demanded no less from others in her life. She was an honest and true daughter, sister and friend. Always the life of the party as she had a beautiful spirit that inspired everyone around her.
Tisha received her education from Joliet Public Schools and later her Medical Assistance certification from North Iowa Community College however most of her education came from life.
