Gina Pauline Wingell
A Model Mother, Loving Wife and Friend, Servant of God.
Gina Pauline Wingell was a loving mother, daughter, sister, wife, and a caring friend to everyone she met. She sought the happiness of others before her own. She sacrificed, and relinquished her self-interests to lend a hand to anyone who needed it. Gina wanted only the best for her family and friends.
As a mother, Gina filled many roles in her children’s lives. She was never much of a sports fan, but took every opportunity possible to be alongside her kids as one of the coaches. Little league, soccer, and rugby- she was present every game. She adored participating as a Girl Scout den mother, which brought her tremendous joy.
Her presence was healing. She was full of wisdom, which brought peace to everyone she encountered. She taught her children modesty, empathy, and respect, and was an outstanding wife. Our family could not have asked for better.
She had a profound passion for music and was a Radio DJ in high school. Later in life, she would send her family inspirational songs, and wake up her kids for school by blasting Elton John, REM, Led Zeppelin, and The Stranglers. She enjoyed just sitting near the speakers listening to her favorite songs at her own pace. She wasn’t afraid to take risks and was a driven innovator who started a successful business called “Times Saver Temps” before becoming an executive secretary.
She was incredibly strong, and would stand up for anyone who was wronged. Gina was a small woman, but a fighter through the very end. Her legacy is present in the love that she left with others. She was a pleasant, lovely woman who found joy in her children, husband, friends, and family. Gina was a model mother and an example one could only hope to match. Her heart saw no bounds as a servant of God whose trials and burdens will be redeemed in the Kingdom of Heaven.
