She is survived by two daughters, Sarah Malissa Ivey Clewis and Helena Michelle Brock; one son, Noah Wiley Brock; two loving grandchildren, Elsie Mae Jackson and William Boden Clewis. She is also survived by a sister Wanda Butler; two brothers Bobby Cumber, Jr, and Keith Cumber; many nieces and nephews; and Elizabeth Stanfield, who was like a mother, and all of Wilmington.
Tina was like a mother to many, she always had music in her heart, love for all, as well as something good to eat. She worked as chef for many years in Wilmington and also made beautiful wedding cakes.
