Regina Nolentubby

Our classmate Regina Nolentubby died in 1973 while outside Guadalajera, Mexico while on vacation with a friend.  At the time of the accident, Regina had been studying at the University of Texas while simultaneously studying at the Nursing School at Brackenridge College.

From Joette:

I don't know if you were a classmate of hers - if you were you know what a sweet angel she was. She loved her friends at Irving High. I am her younger sister and there isn't an hour that passes that I do not think of her. Should anyone who knows her want to get in touch-feel free to give them my email address. Gina always believed you needed to let people you love know how you feel.

In honor of her-tell someone you might have forgotten to tell lately that you love them. I know all too well it might be your last chance.

I didn't know that Gina had passed and at such a young age ! Gina and I were friends in high school, but unfortunately, after school we lost touch. Gina, Jeannie Gross and I hung out together a lot in school. Often, the three of us ate lunch together, met in the mornings before classes, and sat together when everyone went to the auditorium or pep rallies.  I can still see her face and hear the sound of her cute laughter. Gina was a sweetie and I'm very sorry for the loss that I know her Sister and family acutely feel.

When I read that Gina had passed, I was saddened.  When I read about the circumstances and how young she was, I was stunned.  Gina and I went to the all night Senior Party at Six Flags together.  As Debbie Rodriguez's post points out, you can always remember her laugh.  But I also remember her smile.  I remember her smile, because I don’t remember a time when she wasn’t smiling.  Gina was someone you could talk to for hours.  I remember after a party at her house, there were four of us who just sat around until 4:00 AM talking.  Time just seemed to just fly by when you were talking to her.  Gina could and would talk about anything.  The first time I met Gina was at a party.  We spent a half hour discussing the differences between the Doors version of “Light My Fire” and Jose Feliciano’s version which was a hit at that time.  I defended the Doors; however, in my closet, I still have a classic vinyl copy of Jose Feliciano’s LP so Gina and I could compare the two.  As Debbie also point out, regardless of how close you were in High School, once it was over, we quickly all went our own ways and lost touch with each other as our lives went on.  I am saddened by the loss, and I appreciate that her sister let us know about her fate.
