Gina Renee Biancardi, of O’Fallon, MO died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 55 years young. She will be terribly missed by all who knew her.
Gina was the loving daughter of Joseph (Star) Biancardi; the wonderful and best sister to her brother Joseph “Scott” (Marileste) Biancardi and to her half-sisters, Joann and Christine Biancardi and half-brother Leonard “Lennie” Joseph Biancardi; devoted mother to Brandon (Cassie) McNamee and cherished grandmother of Annabelle and Aspen McNamee. Niece of Delores “Dee” (Richard “Dick”) Foster, Jerome “Jerry” Petti and Diane (Merrill) Garland; and dear companion and love of Jim Williams. Gina was preceded in death by her mother, Rosalie Ferris, her son Nicholas McNamee, grandparents, Alfred and Rose Petti, and Leonard and Josephine Biancardi.
Gina was extremely passionate about Organ Donor Donation after the loss of her son, who was an organ donor and saved 3 lives after passing at just 27 years here on earth with us. Peggijane Stover was one of those recipients that became a great friend to the family. She worked countless fundraisers for Mid-America Transplant & MOnetwork.org, Organization that fights the progressive change and equity with and for people who use drugs and those with substance use disorder. She was a member of the local chapter of “Not in Vain” for Mom’s that safely grieve the loss of their son/daughter. They recently erected a billboard at Manchester & McCausland that feature her dear son Nicholas and many more.
