Regina was educated in Colchester where she was actively involved in band, volleyball, softball, and cheerleading.

Two of Regina's most memorable jobs were Denny’s Grocery Store in Colchester and Methode Electronics in Carthage, where she was able to make many lifelong friends. She enjoyed going to the Colchester Senior Center to play Pitch every Monday night. She loved anything to do with the outdoors, which included: fishing, hunting, and taking countryside car rides. She also loved taking the time to just sit and listen to music. She regularly attended the Crossing Church in Macomb, where she was focused on having a close and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Regina was always the fun aunt to be around, enjoying every moment she could with her family. Regina’s daughter Raegen was the center of her life. She never missed her daughter's activities and supported her in all of her adventures. Her absolute favorite moments in life were watching Raegen play softball with the McDonough County Cats.
