Born March 18, 1915 in Alice Castello, Italy, Gina Lana immigrated with her parents to San Francisco in 1922.
She attended Girls' High School in San Francisco and graduated from UC Berkeley in 1936. After teaching at high schools in Santa Rosa and San Francisco, she married Milton Ludwig and moved to the East Bay for the remainder of her life.
After Milton's death in 1965, she was married to Wilson Cline from 1969 until his death in 2004.
Gina's love for music was surpassed only by her devotion to family - sons David and Kenneth Ludwig, and grandchildren Hans, Ethan, Erich, and Karen.
Gina died peacefully at home in Kensington, in the company of her children and grandchildren, on December 13.
All who knew her will miss her quick mind, extensive knowledge, and great wit.
