Regina Leigh Deal

JOPLIN, Mo. — Regina Leigh Deal

Regina Leigh Deal, born July 7, 1964, in Fort Bragg, N.C., to Reginald Deal and Raye Dean Boultinghouse Deal, passed away at 1:45 a.m. Aug. 16, 2013, at Freeman Hospital.

Regina moved to Kansas City, with her mother, when she was 4 years old. As a teenager, Gina gravitated to Joplin area.

She has three half-sisters in the Joplin area, Linda Knight (Monk), Patty Lee (Dick) and Lisa Arcidepani and one half-sister, Debbie Shrum (Lonnie). She was preceded in death by her grandmother, Lucille Veith; uncle, Bill Veith; and father, Reginald Deal. She is also survived by her mother, Raye Dean Charlier and stepfather, Gene Charlier; several nieces and nephews, cousins and her beloved dog, Jimmy.

Gina was plagued by many illnesses and addictions. She graduated from Franklin Tech as a machinist and had several jobs in that field over the years.

We pray that she is at peace now and free from the demons that plagued her.

Cremation by Midland Cremation Society. Memorial service to be held at a later date.
