Tina Sfondeles Parents
Tina is the daughter of George Sfondeles and Elizabeth Sfondeles. Her father died suddenly in 2013 at just 63. He owned a Shell gas station at Belmont and Milwaukee for 30 years before his death. George also loved Christmas as Tina describes; “My dad loved Christmas. I mean, loved Christmas. All through my childhood, he would carefully place presents under the Christmas tree in the dark as we slept. We heard the rustling and assumed it was just Santa Claus.”
In 1983, Tina’s mother Elizabeth was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. The painful disease ate up the cartilage in her body. It also forced her to get a replacement shoulder in her 30s. Later, it led to a second shoulder surgery. To date, Elizabeth can’t lift her left arm above her shoulder. She was also put on painkillers. However, years later Tina describes how what was supposed to help her mother turned into a disastrous addiction.
“I watched as a doctor who had prescribed my mother opioids for more than 20 years looked at her with a combination of shame and disgust. I’ll never forget that look,” she described.
