It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Gina Raposo, on Wednesday, December 21, 2022 at the age of 55 after a courageous battle with breast cancer. She will be sadly missed by her beloved husband Armando, her loving children Laetitia and Raphael, her parents Justina and Victor Raposo, her siblings Maria (Vince), Justina (Alain) and Frank, the de Oliveira family, and all her nieces, nephews and many other relatives and loving friends.
Gina was a guiding figure to many, and will be remembered for her caring and accepting nature and her wise advice. Her passion for art led her to become a talented mosaic artist and teacher who loved creating artwork for her family and friends.
