OCEAN COUNTY – Micromedia Publications is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Tina Orth, a popular realtor in Ocean County and a friend of the newspaper publishing company for almost 27 years.

Orth, a Whiting resident, passed away on April 1, 2022. She was 59.

When Micromedia decided to move to a more modern office space in 2019, Tina Orth was able to do the impossible. She was successful at selling the company’s longtime headquarters on Union Avenue when most other realtors wouldn’t even try. Tina was also helpful in locating our new home in the Lakehurst Circle Shopping Plaza.

All of us at Micromedia would like to extend our thoughts and prayers with Tina’s family, friends and coworkers.


The following is Tina’s obituary from the Carmona Bolen Funeral Home in Toms River.

Tina Lynn Orth, 59, of Whiting, passed away on Friday, April 1, 2022. Tina was a lifelong community member of Manchester and some would say the town celebrity. Tina grew up in Whiting until they relocated to Manchester where she spent most of her time working at Cooper’s Florist, which was the Cooper Family Business.

Most knew Tina as the face on the billboard as she had a 25 year career at Crossroads Realty in Toms River, NJ. From there, she began her Real Estate career in 1996, when she became a full time Real Estate Agent.

The first year she earned the prestigious honor to be the “Rookie of the Year.” Followed by United Ways, “Young Professional of the Year,” “The Million Dollar Sales Club,” “NJAR Circle of Excellence,” “Realtor of the Year,” “Humanitarian of the Year,” “Senior Real Estate Specialist,” “Distinguished Sales Club,” “Byron Kotzas Achievement Award,” “Ocean County Girl Scouts Woman of Distinction,” “Preferred Realtor for the Erickson Senior Living Communities.” “Buying or Selling, I’m your girl” was the slogan she lived by and she truly lived for the work that she did.

Outside of work, Tina was also very prominent in the community. She has been the past President of the Lakehurst/Manchester Rotary and the past Church Clerk and member of the Whiting Bible Church. She has also been the Vice President of the Senior Resource Alliance, Board Member of CareGiver Volunteers, Relay for Life Volunteer, American Cancer Society Volunteer, Samaritan’s Purse Volunteer, Hope Sheds Light Volunteer and was on the Community Medical Planned Giving Committee.

What Tina prided herself on the most was her husband, Tom, of 32 years and her two incredible offspring, Dahlia and Jade. Some of their most favorite things to do together was play all kinds of board games, family vacations to her favorite spot of the beach, and just spending quality time together. Tina’s exuberant spirit and laughter will be missed most in the house.

Tina is predeceased by her parents Hilda & William Sr, Cooper.

Surviving is her loving Husband of 32 years, Thomas Orth, her daughters Dahlia & Jade Orth. Her sister Tonia Moll (George), her brother William Cooper Jr; and sister Heather Dries (Danny).
