Tina M. Ferge, age 50 of Clintonville, passed away Sunday morning, September 13, 2015 at her home following a battle with cancer.
Tina was born on January 22, 1965 in Oconto Falls, WI. She was the daughter of Claire and Elaine (Paholke) Hertwig. As a young girl at the age of 6, Tina moved with her family from Gillett to New London where she graduated from high school in 1983. After graduation Tina was united in marriage to Rick Ferge on November 3, 1984. The couple had a son, Justin, and later divorced. Shortly after, Tina was united in love to Doug Moldenhauer, spending the past 27 years together. Early on, Tina worked for the New London Hospital in the cafeteria, then Marly’s Restaurant and later Hillshire Farms in New London for 10 years. Most recently though, Tina enjoyed working as a sales rep for Kolosso Toyota in Appleton where she met lots of friends, both co-workers and clients. She was a current member of Christus Lutheran Church in Clintonville and in her younger years served as Den Mother for the Boy Scouts. She loved her flowers and earned a black belt in Taekwondo. She was a wonderful mother and daughter who was beautiful inside and out. Her smile was contagious, she was always optimistic, and loved visiting with people.
