Heaven has gained a special one, and a healer of the angels.


        She was born in New York City to Earthlee Jackson and Wesley Johnson. Gina was raised by her Grandmother Pearl Gordon in the grounds of Harlem. She was also very close with her siblings Lizzy, Andy, James, Wilhelmina, and Jerry, whom she loved.


       She attended PS 174 in Harlem, Charles Evans Hughes High School and finally graduated from Martin Luther King Jr. High School in 1982. Shortly after graduating, she worked at UCP in the payroll department, where she met Nathaniel. On June 3, 1989, Gina married Nathaniel Francis and on November 13 that year, she gave birth to her only child Ashley Francis. Her and Nathaniel separated in 95' but still remained very close friends til' the end. They loved each other through good and bad. Those vows were really kept.


Later on, Freedom House/ Barrier Free living had the pleasure of her presence as an employer working as an H&S Assistant. It was always a goal to further her education, so she made that happen at the tender age of 46. At the time of her passing, she was pursuing her dream of obtaining her Associate's degree in Human Services at BMCC (Borough of Manhattan Community College). Not so far from finishing up, but she was well determined to let nothing get in her way. In the upcoming semesters of 2014, she would be rolling down that isle with joy. In her early 30’s, she attended acting classes, in which she excelled and could’ve further that after finishing school.


        Gina never let her disability stop her from achieving her goals in life and kept going no matter the circumstances. As a disabled woman, she embodied independence, strength, ambition, and the list goes on. In the LGBT community, she always advocated as a proud lesbian. Her grandmother Pearl Gordon had a strong presence in her life until her passing.


Gina was a loving aunt and was very welcoming to anyone in her home. Anyone who was blessed with presence will know how much she will be missed. A wonderful loving mother, daughter, wife, sister, aunt, and friend.

You're birthday is next week and unbelievably you would've been 50 but didn't look a day over 40.

I miss you more and more as I look in your pictures eyes
All I do is wonder if you were in my present
The ultimate test is on my shoulders
I hold your voice in my head on silly jokes we make
My heart is carrying a load of memories I wish we can share

"Why some people  don't  understand when I say to them that I miss you they ask me why or have something smart to say. When you was here on earth with me I know what we mean to each other (two people who had each other back no matter what we had going on). I miss coming over to your apartment for a few glass of wine & our talks about our daughter or what's going on  in each other life. You was always a good listener and always give me good advice. I always used to joke with Ashley and say mommy got the know it all syndrome after one of our conversation. The day that you left me here on earth is also the day a big part of my life left with you too. The relationship we had was a good one and we really work at it for ourself.
I am so proud of you for all that you accomplishing in your life. You have giving so many people confidence in their life with all that you accomplish in yours. Life is going be really hard for me now, because it don't have the one person I know that I can really count on the most. Sitting here looking at your smile in your pictures or me thinking of you  just make me cry. Crying because I miss talking an seeing your smile or the way  we  say hello to each other when we see one another. Yesterday was Father's Day Andy invited us over for lunch. The only thing that was missing was you being there, we know you was There Spirit. Yesterday while we were talking about you and how much we really miss you I realize how much your brother Andy really misses you. I love seeing everybody yesterday and it was fun. But the one person we all would've loved to see was you. Baby Mama I miss you more & more everyday an I'm hurting so much not having you here to talk & laugh with. There will never be another one like you. I hope me, Ashley & carol  get to come to your new home to visit you this Thursday. Carol has really been there for me & Ashley taking us up there to you. Love you always Baby Daddy"

"What a beautiful Angel
So far but still so close
Happy spirit with a laugh
And a beautiful smile
Your Spirit is my joy
What a beautiful Angel
Cry tears of miss
Not of pain
Being hurt from your death
With the spirit you had
Mama gina
There is no such thing
So, I hide this pain
And talk instead
What a beautiful angel
Her death gave her a heaven rest
I can still see you smile and laugh
What a beautiful Angel!!!!!"

"My condolences go out to the family and friends of Eugenia.  From reading about her I know she will be missed and was loved.  No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and soon it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26).  I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our loved ones at John 5:28,29 and hope you will too.  Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends.  I enjoy reading and sharing Revelation 21:4 which promises:  "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.  The former things have passed away."  I did not know Eugenia, but I read her obituary and I hope these scriptures will help to bring some comfort knowing that others care.  I have found much comfort in the Bibles promises and the hope it brings and hope that you will be able to as well.  Please read this particular article on and also see the "Related Questions" on the right that will answer many questions that most people have at this time and this will bring you comfort.

"Days not same
Time goes fast
Depression nears
All I'm feeling is fear
Tears can't express my pain
So all I do is regain myself from falling victim to the lost world
Soul is lost
Trying to find myself again
I can't seem to last
Everything in my mind is just the past
I wish I could relive those moments
Spent with my beloved mother
Fights and love were are way of defining our stubborn takes of life
My healer now rests
She left me to follow her lead
But who am I without the one who brought me as their seed"

"I didn’t know November 24 would be the last time I see you happy and well even though I known you for a year it felt like I known you longer than that. I remember when I first came to your house and you was like 'don't be shy I’m the cool aunt' and every time I came to your house I would be greeted with a hug and a kiss on the cheek. I never was so close to any of my girlfriend’s family members before so it really felt like I lost an aunt when Kiana told me that you had passed away I was shocked and so heart broken . I miss you a lot and I wish you continue to look after Kiana, Ashley & your loving family!!!! R.I.P Aunt Gena"

"My dear Auntie Gena... The bond we had was powerful. We were like best friends and the fact that you're no longer here to vent to, hug, kiss, cry to, bother, laugh with, hurts me everyday. Not a day goes by that i don't think about you and how much i would do anything to hear your voice or see your face again. Like my second mother you loved me, scold me, protected me, and taught me how to be strong despite the obstacles in life, and i appreciate you for it all. Whatever i do in life i want to do it for you since you always said you seen so much of yourself in me. I'm really going to miss everything about you Auntie and there's no one in my heart that's going to take your place. I really hope God is taking care of my angel above. I love you and i always will. Sleep in peace Auntie Gena."

"Gina and I met 2010 and I knew from the beginning that she was definitely something special. We didn't live close, so we would talk on the phone as much as possible. She was very special to me and I miss her a great deal. Anyone who knew Gina knew that she was one of a kind."

"Gena I still can not believe that you are no longer here to laugh at my very corny jokes or for us to call back and forth to talk about James progress. I would call you crying and you would always make me feel better saying "Nita, Girl you know James is going to be OK. You just saying that would make it feel so much better. Then that lil chuckle at the end would let me know It's going to be OK. Gena I miss you and think about you everyday since I heard the sad news that you have gone home. I think I have read your text from my phone about 50 times. You know we text each other a lot. Anyway Gena, I will try my best to continue to keep an eye on your brother and your nephew Wesley from here and you watch over the family from up there and all will be OK. I miss you girl and never will I ever forget about you."

"Gina you know I'm never the one to put things into words the way you like me too. February 18, 2014 was the worse day of my life knowing that you not going be in my life any more on this earth but I'm sure we will be together again some day. Gina I know that you always know I love you like no other woman & I always  know you love me back too. Our relationship was very special one 2 people that was always there for each other no matter what. I cry everyday since you left  Ashley & me, its been so hard to watch Ashley go though this.

"Mommy I miss you. As days go by the wound get bigger and bigger. You was my best friend that's why I never labeled anyone as that because you had that title of a confident, best friend, nurturer, and best friend. I never will understand why you left. I wish I got the chance to hold you with my half hugs. We had our ups and downs as mother and daughter but I love you no matter our stubbornness. You taught me a lot in life. You meant the world to me. You never gave up on no matter how upset I made you. You pushed me to do better with a rough shove but I know it's love. I miss your smile and laugh with our jokes. You understood me and I'm going to our talks. I can't wait to see you again. Til' then I'll make you proud."

"Did you know i love you. Sure we had our problems, but did you know i love you, gripe back and forth like sisters do, but did you know i love you, fought over clothes and other unimportant things, but did you know i love you. Missed your visits and your phone calls, but did you know i love you, we misunderstood each other at times, but did you know i love you. We made each other crazy at times, but did you know i love you, yes indeed i do."

"Mama Gina was the mother i always wanted. She was loving and accepting of all people no matter what the case was. She left me with nothing but loving memories that i will forever and always cherish. I can still hear you laughing, such a lively woman.which is why I still can't get the fact that you're gone. However i believe that you're in a better place living stress free."
