We will miss Gina’s sense of humor and quick wit !! She could roll with the best of them. She loved her family and cherished her co-workers. She will always be remembered as someone who spoke her mind and never failed to express her love.

Willing
Team player
Personable
Godly
Loved family

I just want to add she was a mess and a card. And I mean that in the best way. So fun to be around. Glad I knew you.

Gina was one of my dearest friends. We spent a lot of time together when we were raising our children. She was so much fun to be around and she loved children. My Johnny and Jana loved her so much when they were little Johnny thought Stevie Collins was the coolest guy in the world. I will miss Gina!
