Obituary

Gina Maria Dozier King, daughter of the late Brady Thomas Dozier and Erma Gaffney Dozier was born on June 19, 1961 in Nashville, Tennessee. She went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on July 18, 2021 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Gina began her education in the private schools of Nashville, Tennessee. In 1975 her family moved to Norfolk, Virginia where her father, Brady Dozier assumed the role as the Director of the Food Service at Norfolk State University. Gina, continued her education in the Virginia Beach public school system and graduated from Bayside High School in the Class of 1979. She matriculated at Virginia State University then transferred to Norfolk State University where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. Gina subsequently earned her Master of Science Degree in Business Administration and Special Education from Norfolk State in 1990.

Gina began her civil service career in 1984 as an intern at the Army Material Command Program in Texarkana, Texas. She continued her career at various commands including the Fleet Support Supply Command (formerly the Naval Supply Center of Norfolk, Virginia), Naval Air Reserve, Norfolk. In August of 2019, Gina retired with more than 38 years from the Joint Forces Command, in Suffolk, Va. Gina was considered an outstanding employee and received many accolades for high performance and exemplary citizenship. Additionally, Gina performed a myriad of jobs in the private sector.

On June 14, 1986 Gina was married to Dennis King, Sr. Dennis and Gina's marriage ended in divorce, however, they remained good friends. In spite of her illness, Gina continued to assist Dennis in any way that she could to make his life easier. From this union, two wonderful children were born, Dennis King, Jr. and Bria Brady King. Gina was a devoted mother and exhausted every effort to ensure that her children had the means and opportunity to be productive and successful citizens.

Gina accepted Jesus Christ at an early age. She attended the Historic Bank Street Baptist Church alongside her parents. At the time of her passing, she was a faithful member of “The Mount” under the leadership of Bishop Kim Brown. She was a member of the Greeter’s Committee. Prior to her illness, she faithfully gave her time, talents and treasures to God and the fellowship of The Mount.
In June 2018, Gina began her cancer journey and fought hard until her death in July of 2021. During her journey, her friends gathered to support her by traveling near and far for treatment. Especially her sister Patricia who traveled with her on a bi-weekly basis for treatment. Additionally, her daughter relocated temporarily to support her full time in the last months of her life. Gina was notorious for being there in her loved one’s darkest hours, so her loved ones were happy to reciprocate care.

Gina was a member of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc, and was a regular contributor to Virginia Beach Jail Ministries and NAACP.

She leaves her precious memory through her loving and devoted children, Dennis King Jr. of Washington, D.C. and Bria Brady King (Fiancé Thabiti Stephens) of Atlanta, GA; her brother, Patrick Dozier (Hilary) of Manasas, Virginia; her sister, Angela Dozier of Oak Park, Michigan; her Aunt, Shirley Crawford (Ronald) of Nashville, Tennessee; her nieces Madison and Mia Dozier; her best friends and sisters, Patricia Ellison-Weaver & Wendy Johnson; her spiritual brother Brian Monroe, her devoted friends, Josie Stanley-Brown, Lisa Price Stevens, Terri Thornton, Sharmaine and Shameka Williams and spiritual mother, Lula Thornton alongside a host of cousins and friends.
