Tina Lyn Schick (Sparks) lost a short, hard-fought battle with cancer on Jan. 1, 2022. She was 33 years old.
Tina was born June 27, 1988, the daughter of Peter Sparks and Sharon Sparks (Schafer). Tina lived on Grand Island most of her life until moving to Sullivan County.
Tina had many different jobs in her life, from working as a checkout clerk at Tops on Grand Island to housekeeping at Resorts World, Catskills. However, her true passion was her horses, and teaching others to ride both on her father’s farm and at various stables around Sullivan County.
Tina is predeceased by her mother, Sharon Sparks. She is survived by her devoted husband of five years, John Schick; by her loving father, Peter Sparks and stepmother, Deborah Plumeri; numerous loving cousins, aunts, uncles, in-laws, a niece and nephew; as well as many friends and riding students.
Tina will be greatly missed by all who knew her. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Stewart-Murphy Funeral Home, Callicoon, New York. To leave a condolence or for further information, visit www.stewartmurphyfh.com or call 845-887-4900.
