Memorial
On Sunday, July 17, 2011 surrounded by family, God in his infinite wisdom, ended the physical pain and suffering of our beloved daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin and friend; and called Gina McCullough home to peace everlasting.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Gina entered this world on December 11, 1962 the eldest daughter of Mable and Solomon McCullough. As a child she never slept more than six hours a day. She had a zest for life and was eager and always ready to go explore the world around her. Gina’s education began in Queens, New York Public Schools where she was bused in from Brooklyn during her primary years. As the eldest child of three children, she took that responsibility seriously; always defending her siblings against whoever attempted to cause them harm. Gina spent a few summers “down south” with her cousins in North Carolina, where they rode bikes, went swimming and visited the grandparents forming an everlasting bond with her cousins. She loved being with her immediate and extended family; and assisted in the planning of family reunions and made every effort to be present for family events. If she couldn’t physically attend she would keep in contact by calling every few hours to find out what was going on. We called her, our personal GPS. She was the primary coordinator for family outings during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays with her family and cousins; always exploring new restaurants and activities of interest for children. She loved her family unconditionally.
After graduating from Richmond Hill High School, in Queens, New York; Gina continued her education by attending the Kingsbourgh Community College earning several credits towards her marketing degree while working a full –time job with Select Magazine Company.
In 1983 she began working in Tarrytown, New York with her beloved father at the General Motors Plant. While employed with GM she met and married her husband of 2 years on August 5, 1990. General Motors became a family affair, because not only did Gina, her husband,father, and cousins work there, her siblings joined her during the summer months.
Gina left GM in the early 1990’s, and moved to New Jersey where she worked for Database America in their marketing division for several years. After visiting Georgia and enjoying the warm weather and southern hospitality, Gina packed her bags and relocated to Alpharetta, GA. in 2001 where resided until her passing.
Gina loved the Lord and was seeking his guidance in her own quiet way. She attended church at Atlanta Unity where she participated in Bible Study and the Breakfast Ministry.
Gina enjoyed the slow pace of life in the south, where she met wonderful people who opened their hearts and homes to her. She kept herself busy by joining the “Red Hat” Organization, Book Clubs (butthey rarely read the books), the Senior Center, where she was titled “Senior In Training” (SIT), volunteered at the pool concession stand, movie theater, and was a vendor at the farmers market where she sold her bake goods. She loved entertaining family and friends in her home and participating in the Red Hot Christmas Celebrations. Gina was known for her baked goods, crafts made from ceramics, crocheting, and seamstry work. She loved to cook and travel when opportunity presented itself. Gina’s dream job was to host the show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives”. Although we feel her life was too short, she lived her life to the fullest, always concerned about others needs not requesting anything of anyone...even to the end.
We are so glad God showed His grace and mercy to allow you in our lives....missing your physical presence...Until we meet again, you will be forever in our hearts. Love U

I worked down the hall from Gina, in the computer room, while at DBA in NJ. It is great to see that she was and still is so beloved. I was really touched by this memorial. What a great family.

I'm so sorry for using this site but there is no other way I have found to contact someone who can help . Appreciate everything you can do . From what I have read and seen in her art Gina was a terrific soul .

I miss Gina so much! I worked with her at DBA & Peachtree Data. She was a great friend, and so much fun to be with. She was always so positive about everything, and had the best smile. See ya on the flipside, and save me a seat.
