Gina Krasley skyrocketed to fame after appearing on TLC’s My 600lb Life, in which she recounted her daily routine and struggled to lose weight. Gina was excessively overweight when she first appeared on the show, weighing more than 600 pounds, and required assistance from Dr. Nowzaradan to get as many pounds off as feasible.
It is now known that Gina Marie Krasley passed away at her home in Tuckerton, New Jersey, on August 1, 2021. Her death notice said she was “surrounded by her loving family” when she died.
Gina shared that she was recently diagnosed with an unknown disease that left her unable to move due to an untimely accident. She battled pain in her leg and numbness throughout her fingers, making it difficult for her to use them.
The young woman was born on January 9, 1991, and lived to be thirty years old. The obituary for the celebrity who died too soon was published on the Maxwell Funeral Home website, revealing the following information about her real-life counterpart.
“Gina Marie Krasley (nee LeMehaute), 30 of Tuckerton, NJ, passed away at home surrounded by her loving family on Sunday, August 1, 2021. Born in Galloway, NJ, Gina has been a lifelong resident of Ocean County, living in Forked River, Barnegat, and Tuckerton for the last six years. Her greatest passion was dancing, and she would make up dances with her sister and kids in the neighborhood growing up. She started the “dancing has no size limit” Tiktok trend, and she dreamed of one day opening up a dance studio for special needs children. Gina once appeared in a movie when she was younger called Walking to the Waterline, and she enjoyed playing video games and spending time with her family.”
“Gina was predeceased by her father Anthony Snyder and grandfather Angelo Perullo. She is survived by her loving mother Cathy Devereux of Tuckerton, NJ, wife of 6 years Elizabeth Krasley, sister Ali Samuels and husband Keith of Tuckerton, NJ, grandmother Stella Perullo of Brick, NJ, grandparents Michael and Annette Tubito of Barnegat, NJ, and many aunts, uncles and cousins, her dog Bubba and her cat Daisy.”
Gina Krasley was featured on My 600-Lb Life’s eighth season. She discussed how she had coped with feelings of neglect and abandonment as a youngster while on the show. Food was her comfort in childhood, according to her.
“My life has been hard,” she stated in an episode in January 2020. “The first thing I remember was my older sister Ali getting diagnosed with agoraphobia when I was seven, and she was 11. I felt like all of my mom’s attention was on my sister, so I always felt my whole life like I was pushed under the rug. So that was a really hard time in my life, and I got really jealous of my sister. I remember what made me forget the pain of being abandoned was eating. And by the time I was ten, I was already over 150lbs.”
Gina Krasley died on August 1, 2021.
