Gina was born July 15, 1934, in Coffeyville, KS, to Frank T. and Katie M. Sack. Gina spent her youth in the farming town of Onida. SD. In her early 20s, Gina packed up and moved west to Seattle, WA, where she met the love of her life, Gary Aldrich. Together they raised their family, and created many wonderful memories for all who were lucky enough to share their lives. Gary and Gina relocated to Denver, CO in the mid-60s, and returned to the northwest in 1975. They eventually settled on Whidbey Island.

Gina’s greatest joy came from spending time with her extensive family. She was also an avid golfer, and loved the Mariners. One of her favorite mottos was, “If it ain’t fun, we ain’t doin’ it.” And she was certainly a lot of fun!

Gina was preceded in death by her beloved Gary, and her parents; father, Frank Sack; mother, Katie Sack; and siblings, Nora Barthelme, Jim Sack, Clara Gravely, Helen Mills, Bill Sack, and Emma Jean Culey; and daughter Mary Belle Aldrich and grand-daughter Mary Katherine Aldrich.

Gina leaves behind her sisters: Becky Yackley and Colletta Stewart and her children: Terri Ditto (Roger); Jeffrey Aldrich (Karen), Kevin Aldrich; Danielle Green (Tom); Lynn Aldrich; and Toby Aldrich (Joy). Her 14 loving and loved grandchildren, and 11 adored great-grandchildren will miss her dearly.

    We have such fond memories of Gina and Gary as our neighbors on Whidbey Island. We were also blessed to teach some of their children! Their legacy is rich! We pray for their family and friends as they deal with a new ‘normal’.
