God’s cherished daughter Regena was affectionately called Gena by many and Jean by others. Gena attended Lee High School in New Haven and later worked as a Teachers Aide for the Early Learning Center in New Haven. She loved children, cooking, dancing, candy, music, and the color red. In her twenties she enjoyed playing softball, shopping, and dining with her beloved sisters. Gina was a woman with many struggles and victories, and now she has gone on to rest with our Father in heaven.

Psalms 91:14-15 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
