Gina Candida Lima (nee Machado), a resident of West Lorne, peacefully passed away surrounded by her family at London Health Sciences Centre-Victoria Campus on Saturday, August 12, 2023, at the age of 74. She was the beloved wife of Manuel for 52 years. Gina will be deeply missed by her daughters, Gina Lima (John Carroll) and Crestina Febbraro (Gabe). She is survived by her mother, Belmira Machado (nee Da Silva), and lovingly remembered as a cherished grandmother by Hunter Carroll, Matteo Febbraro, and the late Hope and Star Lima-Carroll.

She will always be remembered as a kind, friendly, and loving woman, where every encounter with her left a lasting impression. Her radiant smile and ability to strike up a conversation with anyone were qualities admired by many. Gina lived life to the fullest, exuding happiness, and approached everything with a positive outlook. Although she is no longer physically with us, her loving spirit will remain forever in the hearts and lives of those she touched.
