From the Edgewater Echo. Edgewater Loses a Saint . Posted By: joelnewton Apr 13, 2017

Today the Edgewater community lost a Saint. Longtime Edgewater resident Gina Hartley passed away on the morning of April 13, 2017 at the age of 54.

Regina Maureen Hartley was born February 20, 1963. She attended local Edgewater schools and graduated from Jefferson High School as a Saint in 1981. She then attended University of Denver, graduated with an Elementary Education degree and started her career as a school teacher.

In recent years, Gina owned Edgewater Coffee Company which served as a hub for the community. Edgewater Coffee Company was located in the space which is currently occupied by Coda Coffee on 25th Avenue between Ames and Sheridan. Gina hired local students from Jefferson High School and saw her business as a community hub. She served much more than coffee as she listened to people’s stories and connected them with local resources and people. Local art from school children and aspiring artists filled the walls. The stage in Edgewater Coffee hosted many local musicians and launched the career of Tomara Conrad.

Gina will be remembered for her big smile and large heart for her family, education and the Edgewater community.

Gina Hartley Scholarship Fund In lieu of flowers Gina would love for people to donate to a scholarship fund that has been set up in Gina’s name. This was one of Gina’s deepest wishes, that she could continue to help the Edgewater Community that she loved so much.

She wants to help Jefferson High School students, who just like her needed grants and help in order to go to college.

Gina was a dynamic force - what and who she believed in had her entire energy and focus - she left the world a better place from what she gave. Tragically taken at too early an age - sending condolences to family and the community at large that she so loved.

We still think of Gina daily with her infectious personality and smile. To this day she continues to influence our lives.

What a treasure. The time I spent in school with Gina was short, but she made a huge impact on my life. The video I watched made for her coffee shop, brings back even more for me how smart, and self sacrificing she was. I've heard it said, God takes the worthy ones to build his army in heaven. I will miss you lady.

The world was a better place with Gina in it. She brightened the lives of everyone she encountered, never missing an opportunity to share her bright smile. She truly is a 'Saint'. I'm saddened by the way she passed, but know that she's in a much better place now. I look forward to seeing her again.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Gina. I am a community facilitator for 10 developmentally disabled men . I often brought the guys into Edgewater coffee. She treated them as if they were her own family. Giving hugs to each one of them and letting them now how valued they were. That's just who Gina was, a light in everybody's life that she met and will be dearly missed.
