Gina was born on September 19, 1957 to Ralph and Imogene McGee. She lived and was raised in Phoenix. Gina was the baby of the family with two older brothers, Donn and Chris. Her brothers and parents have already gone to be with the Lord.  She attended elementary grades at Edison and Garfield schools and attended high school at North Phoenix High School. Gina’s favorite hobbies were pottery, stained glass and sewing. A true perfectionist Gina always strived to put her best efforts into everything she did.

Gina met her husband, Steve Countryman, in high school art class her sophomore year. They became friends and started dating the following year. They got married after finishing their junior year in school. Her “job” was taking care of and spoiling her husband Steve. Gina was very good at it.
