Tina, The Plant Doctor

It is with great sadness that we tell you that our long-time employee Tina has passed away after a difficult battle with cancer. She was truly a fighter, working at the nursery as recently as this past February through chemo treatments and surgery. As a Kerby's employee for 24 years, she sure knew her way around the garden. Many of you may remember her as 'The Plant Doctor' (she was even featured in the Tampa Tribune). She always had an answer for your plant problems; all you had to do was bring in a leaf, and she could tell you the bug and the treatment. I know I will miss talking with her about each season's veggie garden, always learning something new to try to make my garden even better.

Above all, she was an exceptionally kind person. The caring and kindness that she showed her co-workers, the Kerby family and all of her customers is not often found in people anymore. But now she is pain-free and cancer-free, enjoying the flowers of heaven. I'm sure you will agree that she will be missed by customers and co-workers alike, at Kerby's.
