Gina graduated from Rogers High School in 1988. She married the love of her life, Lyle McCallum on May 20, 2000, it was love at first sight for them both. They created a life they loved full of memories that will be cherished always. Gina loved being a mother and showered her daughter Taylor with unconditional love and support throughout her life.

Gina's journey in life was filled with remarkable accomplishments and meaningful contributions to her community. Gina possessed an innate passion for all things creative and consistently sought avenues to express herself through her creativity. She owned Cookies Galore by Gina, and her cookies captured the hearts of many. She put love in every delectable treat she crafted. Gina devoted her time and talent to making beautiful mums for local school homecomings, planning events, and doing anything she could to make moments special for others. Gina even convinced her husband Lyle to venture into the world of raising puppies and flipping homes.

Apart from her entrepreneurial endeavors, Gina had a soft spot for children and dedicated herself to helping local charity organizations.
