Camp Courageous is deeply saddened by the passing of Honorary Board Member Tina Weepie. Tina has supported Camp Courageous in a variety of ways for decades. She has been a loyal volunteer. One could see her working away in the camp kitchen at every camp breakfast…only missing when she was hospitalized or her health did not permit it. She helped sell pineapples for years. She was a collector of a wide variety of items off the camp’s needs list, often packing the trunk and back seat of their car with camp’s many needs. From 1,000s of rolls of toilet paper, to pill bottles, egg cartons, pop tabs…you name it, she found it. Tina provided a labor of love as she made lap robes, quilts, and other hand made items for the campers. Tina and Charlie Weepie provided the land that today has five homes on it for key 24/7 staff, along with camp’s horse stables and pasture. Having been a recipient of exceptional medical care, medical needs were always a passion for Tina, and when it came time to fund the camp’s medical facilities, which is so key to the camp, the campers, and their families, Tina and Charlie Weepie were the first to step forward to provide the Charlie & Tina Weepie Medical Center. Tina’s legacy will live on forever, here at Camp Courageous.
Tina was so good to so many…but most importantly she was a good and caring wife, mother, and grandmother to her family. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Tina’s husband of over 55-years, Charlie, and their children, Jean (Bob) Beer, Margaret Weepie, Michael Weepie, and Brian (Angela) Weepie. -cwb
