Obituary

Christina L. Giovinazzo, age 41, passed away on September 17, 2021 at her home, surrounded by her loving family after a long battle with breast cancer. She was a lifelong resident of Hatboro, born on February 3, 1980 in nearby Abington Hospital. Tina is the beloved wife of David Colòn; mother of Meghan and A.J.; daughter of Victoria Giovinazzo (nee - Simmons) and her husband the late Joseph; brother of Vincent Giovinazzo. She is also survived by a loving extended family, friends, beloved family pets, coworkers at AWE Tuning and Columbia Electric, and the community of Hatboro at large.

Tina's passion for not only preserving the historic significance of her hometown, but for serving the people within, began at an early age and was a continued theme throughout her life. The following is excerpt from her profile when running for the Borough Council:

"Her activism began at an early age, joining the Millbrook Society during middle school. At 17, she ran a petition campaign to prevent the Joshua Potts house from being demolished. Her continued time with the Millbrook Society (including her service as Vice President of the Student Corp) inspired her to remain active in her community. These childhood experiences would ultimately yield a life-long passion for historic preservation, supporting local charities, and inspiring community service through volunteerism.

Since then, she has served as the Chairman of the Hatboro Historic Commission, President of the Hatboro Resident's Association, and continues to volunteer for events such as the annual Thanksgiving parade, Farmer's Market, and the HAT Packs program. Currently, she is the Borough Historian in addition to serving as co-chair of the Zoning Hearing Board."

In her free time, Tina was a devoted wife to Dave and adoring mother to their children, AJ and Meghan. The family enjoyed trips to the beach and to their property in the mountains.

Relatives and friends are invited to her Life Celebration on Saturday, September 25, 2021 at the Decker-Givnish Funeral Home, located at 216 York Road, Warminster, Pennsylvania 18974 from 1:00-4:00 P.M. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations in Tina's honor to the Christina L. Giovinazzo Memorial Fund, c/o Hatboro Federal Savings, 221 S York Rd, Hatboro, PA 19040. The Memorial Fund will in part fund a monument to Tina's love of her hometown of Hatboro in her honor at a location to be determined in the near future.
