AWE Celebrates Life of Employee Tina Giovinazzo with Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirt

Oct 27, 2021

AWE is raising breast cancer awareness and celebrating the life of employee, Christina L. “Tina” Giovinazzo, age 41, who passed away last month after a long battle with breast cancer, by creating a t-shirt and donating to Giovinazzo’s memorial fund, the company announced

“Tina was a very passionate person. She put all that she had into everything she did, always putting others before herself. Most people didn’t realize all that she was going through because she always had a smile and was willing to do anything that she could to help. Although she loved her work, her greatest love was her family. Nothing meant more to her than family,” stated Judy Foley, who worked with Giovinazzo for 10 years.

“AWE created a special AWE shirt donning Tina’s beloved flamingo and gathered the full AWE staff in the tee for a ‘Photoshoot for Tina,’” the company said.

AWE has donated a sum of money to Giovinazzo’s charity and additional shirts to the family. Giovinazzo joined AWE in April of 2012 as the company’s materials supervisor and had been promoted many times until she became the materials manager.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests 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.

AWE provided the following biography:

Tina 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 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 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 an 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.
