Gina Hornbeck

October 6, 1957 — November 2, 2021

Gina Gruben Hornbeck of Lubbock passed from this life on Tuesday, November2, 2021. She was born in Seminole, Texas on October 6, 1957. Gina graduated from Tatum, NM High School in 1976 . After graduation, Gina worked at many jobs: waitress, communication operator for the NMSP, Pharmacy Tech before attending Amarillo Community College and graduated with an Associates Degree in Stenography and became a certified Court Reporter. Gina worked in district courts in Oklahoma and NM before establishing Gina Gruben, Inc., a freelance court reporting service in Roswell, NM.

Gina was a longtime member of the Abundant Blessings Church in Tatum, NM. She was also a long-time member of the Roswell Elks lodge and was an avid supporter of many of their charities, such as the Wounded Warrior Project. Gina was always very active was dedicated to her work and profession. She was also determined to live each day to the fullest!

In the early 2000's she bought a Gold Wing Trike and that opened up a whole new world and a host of new friends. She upgraded her Trike to a Harley Davidson somewhere along the way and managed to survive flying off of a 50 foot cliff while riding a mountain road in AZ. Shaken as she was, that part of her life was too important to her to be deterred, so she bought another Harley Davidson trike and as soon as her wounds healed from the "trip down the mountain", she was on the road again!

In 2010, she met Gene Hornbeck, and they married in 2014 in Tatum, NM, and made their home in Carlsbad, NM. Gina loved Gene, family, and ballgames. They attended many OU and Texas Tech games and Gina soon became an avid fan. Gene was truly everything she ever wanted, and her happiest days were the ones they spent together. They moved to Lubbock in April, 2020.

Gina was preceeded in death by her brother Monte Glen Marrow.
