MORGAN, Regina M.

REGINA MARIE MORGAN (Age 70)

(nee Lanman)

On Sunday, December 23, 2012, of Bethesda, MD. Gina left peacefully surrounded then, as she had been in life, by those who loved her. Beloved daughter of the late Maurice and Evelyn Lanman; devoted sister to Lyn Williams, Maury, Chas, Tom, Bart, Mike and the late Ray Lanman; cherished mother of John Soluri, Toni Geisler and Phillip Soluri. She was a friend and guide to her daughter-in-law Alice and former son-in-law Ricky, and a passionate and loving supporter of her grandchildren Mamie, Michael, Gus and Gina. As the matriarch of the Lanman Clan she opened her heart to all, including those aforementioned as well as her 23 nephews and nieces, their spouses and children and friends. She will be sorely missed and forever remembered by the family and the many friends with whom she surrounded herself on this most wonderful journey. Much of Gina’s life was spent in selfless service of others. She lovingly cared for her dear parents in their final years, and was a caring and fully engaged parent to her devoted children. Gina made herself accessible as a mother, a sister, a confidant, a consultant, and a port in the storm to her family, their spouses and her friends. Gina held herself to high standards in her work life, was respected professionally and served the public accounting industry well through her years of service at Bond Bebe, Gelman Rosenberg, and most recently Watkins Meegan. Gina’s zeal for life remained strong throughout, and she accepted formidable challenges with poise and grace, right to the end. Her presence made our lives better. Her smile, the sparkle in her eyes, her warm embrace, and her undying words of encouragement will remain forever with those she knew and loved. Relatives and friends may call at Collins Funeral Home, 500 University Boulevard, West, Silver Spring, MD, (Valet Parking), Friday, 3 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. A Memorial Mass at Holy Redeemer Church, Summit Ave and Cable Drive, Kensington, MD, on Saturday, December 29, at 11 a.m. Interment private.
