Obituary of Tina Marie Flanagan

Tina Marie Flanagan (Longeway) passed away surrounded by family on Tuesday, January 23, 2024. She is survived by her loving fiancé who brought so much joy to our mom’s life, Wayne Crinklaw and his daughter Andrea (Ben) and her children Rowan and Alder; and her loving daughters: Judith Marie (Charles) Dobson, Rebecca Suzanne (TJ) Flanagan, and Bridget Kathleen Flanagan; her three grandchildren, who she adored: Brian Christopher, Emma Josephine, and Violet Jean. She is also survived by her wonderful siblings Suzanne Christine (Glen) Hawkins, Timothy John (Janice) Longeway, her twin Tomas Scot (Arden) Longeway, and Lisa Jerraldine (Shane) Moran; along with her sister-in-law Elizabeth Ann Longeway. Tina is also survived by John (Kathleen) Flanagan and Julia (Frank) Hastie. Along with close family friends, Betty (Kirby) Baker, John (Jane, 2023) Schutz, and Jacqueline (Brian) Hibbert; and her close cousin Rosemary Regan. As well as twenty nieces and nephews; and several great-nieces and great-nephews; and extended family and friends. Her cat, Stella, will miss her greatly. 

Tina is predeceased by her parents: Louis Jerrald (1984) and Judith Hughena (Whaley) (1969) Longeway. At the pearly white gates, her two older brothers await: Michael John Longeway (1986) and Charles Jerrald Longeway (2024), and her older sister Deborah Ann Martin (2023). She's also united with cats: Sammy, Salem, and Felix. 

Tina was a nurse for over 40 years. She enjoyed her time working in the psych ward at London’s Psych Hospital before becoming a stay-at-home mom for her daughters; and providing care to the people she knew growing up at Kingsway Lodge. Tina was a proud mother of all her daughters. She enjoyed life, always enjoyed her family, and threw incredible dinner parties where loved ones would gather and laugh. Tina made sure everyone close to her knew they were loved. Most importantly, Tina made sure her daughters knew they were loved, adored, and Tina made sacrifices to ensure her daughters had a great life.

The family would like to thank Dr. Gilmor, Dr.Hepburn, and the nurses on duty at St.Marys Hospital; along with the paramedics on duty on the evening of January 13th. The family would also like to thank the University Hospital of London, Ontario for the incredible care they gave Tina in her final month and her final days. The family would lastly thank, all who sent a prayer up to God, who crossed their fingers and toes, who maintained our mom’s privacy, and who visited our mom in her final days.

Family was everything to Tina and is one of the many things she instilled in her daughters; along with faith. Forgive quickly, always say “Love you”, enjoy family, and to remember that God is always there.
