Mortica affectionately referred to as “Tisha” by her family and friends, graduated from Centennial High School then went onto Fort Hayes Career Center and received her STNA certificate. Mortica was very adventurous and loved to try new things. Mortica continued her education and became a travel agent only to land her later as a CDL Truck Driver. Mortica was always up for a challenge.

We know Tisha is resting in her Lord and Savior”s loving arms, she gave her life to the Lord as a young girl, then rededicated her life to Him as an adult in 2005. Tisha was a loving and caring person, always willing to open her home to someone in need of a place to stay.
