In the obituary, provided by Gina Poitier-Gouraige’s loved ones, they did not give many details about the cause of her death, but they confirmed that her passing was “quick and unexpected.” Here’s part of what they wrote about Sidney and Juanita’s beloved baby girl:

‘On the afternoon of May 27, 2018, Gina Patrice Poitier Gouraige was granted her angel wings. Her departure was quick and unexpected. Gina was the youngest daughter of Sidney and Juanita Poitier…. As the youngest of 4 children Gina was teased quite a bit by her oldest sister Beverly. She was protected and soother by her next older sister Pamela and her sister Sherri practiced her hair cutting skills on Gina often. As the youngest child Gina, was loved tremendously, spoiled by her mother and her second Mother “Mama Jean”. Gina spent many a day on her father’s lap escaping the strict discipline…expected from her sisters.’
