Gina Marie Wertz

July 6, 1984 — January 5, 2016

Gina Marie Wertz, 31, died Tuesday (January 5, 2016).

She was born in Chanute, Kansas on July 6, 1984. Gina was independent, she would take charge in every type of situation. She was very compassionate and would be there for you always. Her smile was contagious and could always make you laugh. She had unconditional love for her friends and family.

Gina absolutely loved kids. She said they were her babies. Even when she was little. She loved animals, especially her kittens and bearded dragons.

She liked playing softball, singing, going to the lake and hanging out with friends and family. She also loved to cook, spaghetti, chicken and homemade noodles, turkey salad, and her specialty Oreo cheesecake.

Gina graduated with the Class of 2002 from Newton High School and attended college to become a massage therapist but an illness made it difficult for her to continue.

She started working at Wal Mart in 2000 at the age of 16 and worked in many departments. She was recently promoted to Assistant Manager. Last November she reached her 15 year certificate from Wal Mart. Gina was very dedicated to her job and had a goal to become a Store Manager soon.

Gina donated to “Locks of Love” many times to help those that needed it.

She is survived by her parents, Phillip and Debby Wertz of Newton; brother Michael Wertz and his wife Tammy of Wichita; two sisters Victoria Diringer and husband Toby of Newton, and Jennifer Wertz of Newton; two nieces Allison and Emily; two nephews Kody and Conner; her grandparents Mara Locke, Don Heath, Don and Lily Wertz; along with aunts, uncles and lots of cousins.
