Tina was the daughter of the late Rufus and Helen (Richardson) Catron and the youngest of the seven children. In 1989 she married the love of her life, Michael Lockard.
Tina was eighteen when she began working at Rochelle Pharmacy. She was passionate about helping others, especially her customers. This year Tina won Illinois Pharmacy Technician of the Year, with over 90 letters of recommendation from customers and coworkers.
She loved traveling, boating, spending the day at the sandbar, and spending time at their Florida home, and cooking (from the heart) for her family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers Lohman Catron, Richard Catron.
She is survived by her husband and children: Eric (Jamie) Herrmann, and Boone Lockard (Megan Carbon), one grandchild Colton Herrmann, and furry-baby Brynley.
