Tangela Denise Ince, 47, of Orlando, Florida passed away on September 3, 2019 after a hard-fought battle with breast cancer. She was born on January 23, 1972 in Neptune, New Jersey to Willie and Margaret Martin, Sr.
Tangela was born and raised in New Jersey where she raised her two oldest children, Shameka and Anthony, as a single mother. She worked various jobs to make ends meet and be able to provide for her children. She met her husband, Thomas Ince, while working as an Administrative Assistant for a consulting company in New Jersey. They married in 2004 and that same year moved to Florida, where they would welcome two beautiful boys, Cayden and Ryan, into their lives.
Tangela will be remembered most for her love of helping others as she would rather help people with their burdens and hardships than to have them worry about hers. She possessed a quiet strength, allowing her to stay positive and hold her head high with a bright smile on her face rather than let her prognosis affect her on the outside.
She was strong, determined, and fiercely independent. She was the rock of her family, always there to support them and keep them strong. We will always remember her as a selfless, warmhearted wife and mother who always took care of her family, even when times were tough. She was a dedicated mother who treasured all of her children. They are her greatest accomplishments.
Tangela was preceded in death by her mother, Margaret Louise Martin; and her sister, Wilhelmina Martin.
She is survived by her husband, Thomas Ince; her children, Shameka Martin, Anthony Martin, Cayden Ince, and Ryan Ince; her father, Willie Martin Sr.; and her brothers, Willie Martin Jr. and Eddie Coleman.
In lieu of flowers, the Ince family has asked that donations in Tangela's name be made to The Susan G. Koman Foundation.
