Mary Regina "Gina" Bodimer-Brander, age 63 of Malvern, passed away Friday, June 7, 2019, while at home with her family. She is survived by her husband Christopher who shares these thoughts:
"With a heavy heart, I would like to announce the passing of my soul mate and wife Regina Bodimer, who was taken from us too early and too quickly. Gina will be remembered for steadfastness and her love. It was a long battle with several skirmishes having been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001. She should be admired for her willingness to undergo multiple procedures and treatments with a wonderful attitude and a resolve to fight to the end. In closing she felt to those that have been given much, have much to give. "- Chris
