Gina Louise Brown Harrison, 63, went to heaven on Thursday, May 11th, at Deaconess Gateway Hospital surrounded by family. Born to the late Robert Charles Brown Jr. and Joyce Hunt Brown on July 18, 1959, she had three loving sisters, Tina Forsythe (Doug), Joy Westerfield (Jerry), and Holly Bailey (Matt).
She was a graduate of Daviess County High School Class of ‘77, which is a close-knit group to this day. In 1979, she married John Richard Harrison Jr. They were committed to one another for 42 years until he went to meet the Lord on November 25, 2021. They had three children who they were very proud of, Jonathan (Kristi), Jason (Katy) and Jana Montgomery (Eric), and five grandchildren they loved deeply, Olive, Ellie, Jay, Eva and Cora.
She was a stay-at-home mom for her children during their early years, before becoming a caregiver for Lauren Emmick, which was a role she took a great deal of pride and joy in. She loved Lauren as a daughter and considered the entire Emmick family one of the greatest blessings in her life.
Gina was a fierce follower of Jesus Christ, and rarely let an opportunity pass where she didn’t tell the people near her that God loved them. She never met a stranger and had an adventurous spirit, often traveling to visit her daughter who lived for a few years in Brooklyn, NY and London, England. She and John were members of Bellevue Baptist Church for decades and were a part of a very strong community of believers there.
Gina enjoyed gardening, seashell hunting, mud larking, fishing, watching her children and grandchildren in sports and activities, and starting her day on the back porch with her daily devotional and Bible time.
She was an inspiration and encouragement to many and will be greatly missed. Those who were with her in her final days were able to witness the beauty and peacefulness Gina possessed as she confidently entered God’s embrace without fear.
A joint memorial service for her and her husband, John, will be held at 1 p.m. on Thursday May 18, 2023, at Bellevue Baptist Church. Visitation will be held Thursday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the church.
Care by Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory.
