Gina was born December 9, 1960, in Kansas City, MO and had lived most of her life in Overland Park before moving to Salina in 2005. She was the eldest of six and was the consummate older sister, devoted daughter, loving mother and dedicated wife. She was a 1979 graduate of Shawnee Mission South High School where she was a proud member of the Flag Team and a 1984 graduate of her beloved Kansas State University. She graduated with a bachelor degree in Early Childhood Development where she was a member of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority. Gina had been a Corporate Director of Sales and Marketing for her father at Grand American Hotels before starting her dream job of being a wife and mother to her family. Always quick with a smile, a hug and a laugh, Gina touched the lives of so many throughout her 49 years. Her laughter was infectious and her caring and compassion ways were evident in all that she did. She was a member of St. Mary Queen of the Universe Catholic Church in Salina and a former member of Church of the Ascension in Overland Park. Gina is survived by her devoted husband and best friend of 24 years, Donald P. Boos and three children, Lauren, Joey and Bonnie all of the home, her parents, Joseph F. and Bonnie J.

Boos.
