Mrs. Regina Morton Perry Obituary

Regina “Gina” Marie Morton Perry was born to the late Hammitt Downey Jr. and Anna Marie Morton Harris in Durham, NC on June 6, 1971. She departed this life on January 25, 2024, at

Riverside Regional Medical Center, in Newport News, VA. She was educated in the Durham Public School System in Durham, NC.

Gina always brought light to any situation. She could make you laugh at the drop of a dime.  She was the pillar of her community. Working in the Healthcare Field, no wonder why she was

a natural at this. Family was everything to her. She did what she had to do to ensure everyone  was “Good”. Gina met no strangers! If you needed anyone or anything, call Gina aka “Big

Country”. She loved to sing, dance, and have a good time just like her mother. Wow she could  move! She would dance circles around you, literally, which was proven by her dedicated “Boom-

Boom” room in her home. She loved football and loved to travel. The Dallas Cowboys were her TEAM! Gina loved to dress; don’t even think you were going to step on her Nike Air Max’s.


Gina was preceded in death by her parents Hammitt Downey Jr. and Anna Marie Morton Harris, brothers- Hammitt Downey III and Stanely Downey, eldest grandsons- Caden Antwan

Lipscomb-Blow and Xzavion “Boonchie” Lawton.
