Goodbye Mommy


My mother, June Elizabeth Fennell, died this evening at 7:03 p.m.  on the TV in the background Amazing Grace was playing (coverage of the funeral of a police officer from Edmonton on the news).  She went peacefully, holding my hand.

Her body just couldn’t recover from the two surgeries and complications.  She was alert this morning and was able to make her own decision about what she wanted.

After over a  month in the hospital, and almost three weeks of it in ICU, she was tired.  Rest well mom.

Thank you to the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and all the other staff who attended mom.

Per mom’s wishes there will be no funeral or service.   Bear Creek Funeral Home will be taking care of her.

Donations to any charity you wish would be appropriate.


June Elizabeth (Racher) Fennell

July 31, 1938 – June 17, 2015

  1. Shannon, Your honesty, forthrightness, ability to lead & teach, organization, sense of humor & plain “ole common sense” have often made me think you “came from good stock”! Your Mum must have been so proud of such a wonderful & loving daughter. My condolences. I wish you peace. Pat Carney, from FPF

  2. I’m so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother Shannon. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad time. May your mother Rest in Peace. Love and Light to help you, from a face painting fan in Ireland. X

  3. Kind thoughts to you . RIP to your beloved Mother.

  4. I’m so sorry to hear this. I know you will miss her. She is at rest.


  5. It is hard to lose a Mom, one that was always there for you as you were for her too. She is no longer suffering, as my Mom said in a letter to me after her death. “I will always be with you in your heart and with you in spirit, I love you my beautiful daughter.”. I am sure your Mom felt the same about you. Prayers for your loss, she is now in the arms of the Lord. Hugs, from Judy in NH fellow face painter.
