Tina Marie Henderson Poppell, 49, passed away on Monday, November 9, 2020 at home under the care of her loving family and Hospice of South Georgia, Inc.
A resident of Jesup since 1989, Tina was born on August 14, 1971 in Valdosta, Georgia. During her childhood she participated heavily in gymnastics and traveled all over the state competing in various gymnastic competitions before her graduation from Tifton High School in 1989. Tina worked in medical billing for Wayne Memorial Hospital for several years after relocating to Jesup before taking a position with Dr. Jeffrey Harris where she has worked for the past nineteen years. She was a giver by nature who never asked for anything in return and was known as (Mammy) by her grandchildren. Tina was a loving mother to her children and to any children that were blessed to be in her presence. Her protective and loving nature made her a natural mother and she truly loved children of all ages. The beach was her happy place and she also loved art and the Florida Gators.
Her paternal grandparents, Clyde J. and Lillian McMillan Henderson and her maternal grandfather, Harry F. Branch all preceded her in death.
