Gina Lynette Stokes, age 60, transitioned her life in the company of her Daughter, and Husband early Tuesday morning, April 14, 2020. Gina was born to Robert E. Lonas and Edith Wilson-Lonas on February 22, 1960 in Toledo, Ohio, and she graduated from Woodward High School in 1978. She had a passion to mentor children, as she studied, and became certified in numerous Adult, and Child Development Programs. She worked at numerous Military Installations around the World. She lived and worked out of the Country on Okinawa Japan as a Child Developer. While traveling with her Husband during a three-year tour on Okinawa Japan, she worked at the Child Development Center, where she mentored American, and Japanese Children. In her spare time, she helped teach the Children of Okinawa the culture, and language of an American Citizen.

Her passion for Children was only part of her work ethic. She had a smile that would light up the entire work space of her Co-Workers. You could hear her high-pitched voice talking and laughing amongst her Co-Workers on a daily basis. She spent over 27 years working as a Child Care Developer.

On Sept 17, 1982, she married and is survived by her loving husband, Uzell James Stokes Jr. They have three adult children; Christopher J. Stokes, Rodney L. Stokes, and Shannon L. Stokes, eight grandchildren; Semyaj Stokes, Jayla Stokes, Rodney Stokes Jr., Dredin Stokes, Jazmine Stokes, King Stokes, Kassidy Turnage, and Kedren Turnage Jr. She has eight siblings; Paulette Carter, Deborah Wilson, Anthony Wilson, Martin Wilson, Robert Lonas Jr., Candace Jones, Lori Lonas, Johnathan Lonas, and several nieces, nephews, cousins, and a whole lot of wonderful friends to cherish. She is preceded in death by her parents, Robert E. Lonas and Edith Wilson-Lonas; brothers, Anthony Wilson and Martin Wilson; and grandmother, Vina Wilson.

Before Gina's illness, she was working as a Certified Lead Technician at the Twenty-Four-Seven Child Development Center which is located in Norfolk Va. where she provided Child Care to the Families who are in the Military, or they work for the Department of Defense.

In 1984 the Spirit of the Lord confirmed himself in her during her fellowship at the Greater Zion Apostolic Church, in California. She was always active in the church as a child, but she became more involved during this time as she was appointed to work on the Usher Board. While Gina lived in Cherry Point North Carolina, She became the Head Usher at Christ Temple Apostolic Church. She continued her service for the Lord in Okinawa Japan during a second tour on the island where she attended Bible Way Apostolic Church and was appointed as their Head Usher.

Gina loved talking with her family members over the phone regardless how far away they were from one another. She always made the time to ensure that they were in good Spirit and health. Gina would start her daily activities as early as 4:30 in the morning where you could hear her laughing and talking on the phone to one of her Sisters or Her Daughter. Gina lived her life as if she was a role model for every Wife, Mother, Sister, Grand Mother, Aunt, Niece, and finally, she was the perfect example of a good Friend. She will never be forgotten because the joy of her Spirit will forever be in our Hearts.
