Gina Willetta Rozier entered into this life on May 14, 1976, the second daughter of Wilbert and Sidra Early Rozier. She passed quietly away on July 14, 2020 with family beside her.
Early in her life, Gina showed herself to be inquisitive, factual and academically strong. She traveled the ranks of Baltimore City schools, graduating from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute where she participated in the College Preparatory Program. In addition, as a promising shot putter and discus thrower, she was awarded an athletic scholarship to University of Maryland Eastern Shore. She later traded that interest in running to business and received her Bachelor of Accountancy from UMES and Master of Accountancy from Miami University. She worked as a tutor and teaching assistant while at Miami University.
Gina accepted Jesus as her personal savior as a child and was baptized at First Emmanuel Baptist Church in Baltimore, Maryland. She served as a junior usher there for many years and enjoyed participating in various church activities such as retreats, trips, and picnics. She often interwove her love of the Lord with other causes that she was very devoted to such as the environment, volunteering, and serving the poor. Gina participated in climate marches, volunteered often and eagerly with numerous organizations such as the Friends of Pratt Library Penn North Branch, CARES, and at women’s shelters. Gina was also a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. She enjoyed spending time with her sorors and helping serve others with them. Most recently she had been appointed as a member of the Assistive Technology Loan Program Board of Directors where she anticipated helping people with disabilities obtain devices to assist with their daily lives. Gina enjoyed discussing world events, travel and good foods, and combined them often. As she traveled with friends, she enjoyed the Tour de France in France, the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and mountains in the Mile-High City. Gina enjoyed life and the possibility of meeting and making friends. Among her hobbies were scrapbooking, reading, and trivia. Gina was a Redskins fan and track and field follower who often engaged in lively, spirited debates about sports. She was also a Star Wars lover and a science fiction fan.
At the time of her passing, Gina was employed by the State of Maryland. She served as the Fiscal Officer for Information Technology and Communications Division. As a well-liked and valuable employee, she received numerous commendations. Gina was pursuing her doctorate in public policy from the University of Baltimore. There as always, she formed loving lasting connections with her mentors, professors, and classmates.
Those of us who knew Gina have had our lives made better by her; whether she was the protective big sister, the supportive aunt, the friend and confidant, she made her impact. Her bravery as she faced her health issues is strengthening and her giving and sharing spirit leaves each of us a piece of her.
