Gina Lea (nee-Herkes) RAWLINS




Gina’s Mom, Lois, returned on March 28th to take her home where there will be no more suffering and pain.

Gina leaves a huge void in the lives of her three greatest loves – Lia (Craig), Graham and Lauren. Others left to mourn are her dad Bill, brothers Reid (Deb), Russell (Lorrie), Bruce, niece Jen (Marc and Kalen) and nephew Hart. She will also be missed by her near life-long friend, Bill. Gina will be gratefully and lovingly be remembered by Barrie, her partner of 10 years. As well, aunts, uncles and cousins will sadly miss her.

Gina was born in Campbell River and raised in Victoria. She had a great love of flowers, gardening, birds and nature. She loved spending her summers camping along side the Oyster River with Barrie and her boys, Scout and Arlo. Gina was also a keen fisherman especially in the rowboat during Tyee season. Gina always had a place in her heart and home for kids that were having problems in their lives.

Friends and family are invited to join in celebrating Gina’s life on Saturday, august 11th, 2007, starting at 1pm at the Tyee Club in Campbell River. A reminder will be placed in this paper as the time approaches.
