Our beautiful daughter, Gina Lynne Ciullo, passed on Jan. 23, 2013, due to a pulmonary embolism. She is the light of our lives. Blessed with a kind heart and gentle spirit, she lived her life to the fullest and brought us much joy. Our family nickname, THE THREE AMIGOS, can best express our deep love for one another. We believe she is with God enjoying all that is beautiful and good, with many Amigos surrounding her and loving her.

Gina was the number one Pittsburg Steelers fan and avid Yankee's fan. She travelled all over the country as a member of the ACE American Coaster Enthusiast Club. Also Gina was member of the Princess Cruiseline Captain's Circle, exploring many ports of call, from Hawaii to Nova Scotia.
She was employed as a kindergarten teacher's aide in the Scranton School for over eight years and was currently working at Robert Morris School. She simply loved working with the children who loved their "Miss Gina".
Gina was born on March 26, 1975. Daughter of Carmen and Judy Watral Ciullo, she was a graduate of West Scranton High School, class of 1993.
Gina is survived by her aunts and uncles, Benedette and Denny Bishop; Joanne and Mark Mazak; cousins, Jason, Brent and Ryan Bishop; Jenna Denard, Mark Mazak Jr. and Lisa Havran; and special friends, John, Donna and Tom.
She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Eleanor and Joseph Watral; and paternal grandparents, Margaret and Rocky Ciullo.
As her Facebook friend John shared: Gina was such a pure heart, soul and a beautiful person, and I am sure that the Lord is able to build FINALLY a big amusement park in heaven.
