Gina Marie Krasley’s family is preparing to bury the reality star this weekend in New Jersey. The star of My 600-Lb Life passed away this weekend at her home in Tuckerton.
According to her obituary, the TLC star was surrounded by her “loving family.” Krasley had been a star on the show since 2020. The show focuses on obese individuals who are preparing to undergo gastric bypass surgeries.
The family will be allowing family and friends to view the body this Sunday in Little Egg Harbor, NJ. We’re told the family is requesting “attendees please wear pink or purple which were Gina’s favorite colors.”
They are also asking In lieu of flowers, Gina’s friends make donations to a “mental health charity of your choosing.”
The family wrote a touching obituary which read, “Born in Galloway, NJ, Gina has been a lifelong resident of Ocean County, living in Forked River, Barnegat and Tuckerton for the last 6 years. Her greatest passion was dancing, and she would make up dances with her sister and kids in the neighborhood growing up.”
They spoke about Gina launching the “dancing has no size limit” TikTok trend. The reality star “dreamed of one day opening up a dance studio for special needs.” Gina is survived by her father Anthony Snyder and grandfather Angelo Perullo along with her mother Cathy and wife of 6 years Elizabeth Krasley.
At the age of 14, Gina already weighed more than 300 pounds. She admitted food was her escape from the world. She said, “As I was getting closer to 500lbs, it started to get harder to do things.”
Gina's shocking death came weeks after she revealed she was suffering from an unidentified illness. She did not provide further details about the alleged illness. The cause of death has yet to be determined.
Gina is not the first star of My 600-Lb Life to die. Her season 8 costar Coliesa McMillian died last year at the age of 41. She experienced complications after a risky weight-loss surgery.
