Gina grew up in and around Anadarko, OK attending school there and later receiving her GED. She was a wrestling cheerleader in high school and was in “Bye, Bye Birdie” in drama. She liked to sing and was a good singer. She would make her brothers and sisters skip down the street to Yellow Brick Road from Wizard of Oz. Her Grandma Mullican said she could tell when Gina was happy because she would sing. She gave big “bear hugs.” Her sisters remember her as being very talented and smart. She always received good grades in school. Kathy, her uncle’s wife, remembers Gina always dreaming big when she was younger. She wanted to be a doctor and help people. Her children and grandchildren were very important to her. Her sister, Marla, remembers her laugh which she liked. Gina loved to garden like her mother and grandmother. She also loved her Native American artwork. She was very good at accounting and worked several years in accounts payable for several companies. Her uncle, Walter, remembers getting reacquainted with Gina and her son, Korey, when they started attending the church where he was pastor. For several years, the family would get together at Walter’s house after the Christmas Eve Service for a gathering always filled with lots of laughter and lots of stories. She was involved in a women’s Bible study at the Portland Ave Baptist Church and several of the women have commented on what a beautiful person Gina was and how they treasured her friendship. She will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her. She is gone too soon from us, but we thank God we know that she is with the Lord in heaven as she had trusted in Jesus as her Savior and Lord. A Celebration of Life Service for Gina will take place later in the spring.
