She was the daughter of Donald E. Dye and the late Mildred Joan Lanier Dye. She was the loving and adored wife of David C. Owings for 42 years. Regina graduated from Eau Claire High School in 1972.

She decided to pursue a career in nursing and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of South Carolina School of Nursing in 1980. The same year she was inducted into Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing. She worked as a Registered Nurse in physician practices, the American Red Cross and retired from the Columbia Veterans Affairs Medical Center in November 2019 as a case manager. Regina loved to care for her patients and was loved by them, with many keeping in contact with her throughout the years. Her loving and caring ways are her legacy and will be remembered by all who knew her. Her intelligence, grace and presence will be truly missed. Regina is survived by her husband, David C. Owings and her father Donald E. Dye. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the Lexington Medical Center nursing and support staff for their kind and considerate care provided during her stays over the past two months. They were exceptional. Per Regina’s wishes, the services will be private.
