For years, Gina worked as an LPN at the Fort Madison Community Hospital.  She lived in the moment! She enjoyed garage sales, thrift stores, flea markets, antique malls, DIY projects, plants, rock hunting, cooking, baking, reading and visiting the library.  More than anything, she loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

A Celebration of her Life will be held a later date.  A memorial has been established for Southeast Iowa Regional Hospice.  Barr Memorial Chapel is honored to serve the Blindt family and an online guest book may be found at
