When a person of utmost generosity and integrity passes away, she's never gone from the memories of those she's impacted. Tina Mohr, (1954-2015) was one of those women, who with quiet dignity and compassion, volunteered for the Rape and Domestic Abuse office for 25 years.
Then, she exhibited the highest form of loving generosity when she signed her Organ Donor card. Upon her tragic death due to a car accident in 2015, she became a tissue donor.
In addition to being a wife to Joe for almost 25 years and the mother of five girls, Tina worked full-time as a clerk, secretary and bookkeeper over the years.
Always busy and involved, she played slow-pitch softball for 30 years. Les O’Donnell, who has coached many softball players over the years, commented that not only was Tina Mohr an outstanding pitcher, she instilled her love of the game in her daughters, who also played on local teams.
Tina had a special sensitivity to persons suffering abuse, and when called upon, responded with helpful information and guidance through the RDAP program.
As stressful as her duties could be, she and Joe would relax by walking their dogs at beautiful Memorial Park in North Platte. It is fitting then, that the North Platte Tree Board voted to honor Tina Mohr by planting a tree on Arbor Day, Friday, April 28.
The dedication ceremony will take place in Memorial Park at 5:30 p.m., just to the west of the Tabor Avenue basketball court. Boy Scout Troop 292 will present the U.S. Flag, and then set the tree in the ground.
The tree is a Lilac, a favorite of Tina's, and was given by her devoted husband, Joe.
Leaving several grandchildren behind, this tree will be a symbol of hope for their futures and the futures of all who come to enjoy the park and it's diversity of trees. Friends, relatives, colleagues and all who knew Tina are encouraged to attend.
