In Loving Memory of Tina Bradford McNeill
Tina Bradford McNeill, born on 13 December 1961, left this world on 14 October 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love, adventure, and joy. She lived a life marked by a deep passion for travel, music, family, and a vivid array of interests that made her a beloved figure in the lives of all who knew her.
On April 2, 1982, Tina married Kenneth McNeill in the Salt Lake Temple. They supported each other’s hobbies and interests in their 41 years together.
Tina's adventurous spirit led her to explore 66 countries. Her wanderlust was not just a hobby but a way of life, and she embraced every opportunity to experience different cultures.
One of Tina's most cherished pastimes was her participation in a bowling league (1985-2021), where her competitive spirit shone brightly. She loved all things Disney, and Disneyland in particular held a special spot in her heart. She also found immense joy in music, being a member of the Strike a Chord piano quartet (1991-2020) and the Salt Lake Symphonic Choir (2001-2012).
Tina was a devoted member of the Oakcrest Women's Committee (2012-2018), where she was known as Tinkerbell. The friendships she forged and the memories she made were some of the dearest in her life.
Tina was a creator, finding joy in sewing, quilting, making costumes, beading, and building businesses to share her talents. Her love for matchy-matchiness was evident in her impeccably-styled jewelry, extensive wardrobe, and seemingly endless collection of shoes.
Tina Bradford McNeill's light will continue to shine in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know her. Her zest for life, love for family, and passion for adventure will remain an enduring inspiration to us all.
Tina leaves behind her husband, Kenny; children Amy and Eric, Todd, and Monica; and grandchildren Taylor, Trinity, Tori, Trent, Aurella, Kate, Eve, and Vera. Tina has also been blessed with the love of five Bradford brothers, three Bradford sisters, and wonderful Bradford and McNeill in-laws.
The funeral will be held on Saturday, 21 October 2023 in the LDS chapel located at 12852 S 3200 W in Riverton. An open house will be held at 10:00 am and the service will be at 11:00 am. In honor of Tina's vibrant spirit and love for all things bright, guests are invited to wear colorful clothing to celebrate her life. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to support cancer research.
