Kittys' Mom

Many of you met my mom, Marcie, at the first Buttonwood GTG in June of 2008. You knew her health was deteriorating at the 2009 GTG, especially when she locked me out of Sunny at 10pm, and thankfully someone had a key that worked in my lock.

Well, it is thru tears that I am telling you that mom passed away in the middle of tuesday night. She was not on any pain meds, nor was she in any pain, her cancer was not the cause of her death, her whole body was just gradually shutting down, and she often said "I just want to go to sleep and not wake up" She is in a better place now.

Mom is being a trend setter, as her wishes are to be cremated, BUT she did not want a viewing or memorial service of any kind, so there will be none. Her ashes will be combined with my dads, and they will be placed in an urn together and then buried in the Veterans Cemetery in Harrisburg, PA. My dad always wanted his ashes spread over the Grand Canyon & so did mom. I will somehow see to it that a small amount of their ashes make it to "The Grand Canyon".

Mom loved RV'ing, and her ornery weiner dog Harley, but she really developed a love for the greyhounds. She was always so upset at how they are treated, and always said that even though she was a small dog person, she would love to have a grey "IF" she was younger. She came VERY close to adopting one that she fell in love with, BUT sadly I kinda discouraged her. Maybe I shouldn't have, I don't know. Mom was not a church go'er, didn't belong to any groups, except this group, and did Greyhound Meet n Greets with KD & I. Her love was to travel with the rv and see our beautiful country. Since we started to RV in 1996 mom got to see so many wonderful places, and I am so glad that I was able to take her there.

Kitty


Due to having many inquiries about where to send flowers, donations, etc. I am attaching some information. Honestly my Aunt & I had a very difficult time deciding upon what "orginazition" as mom was a real stay to her self person and did not really belong to any group. SO, IF you were looking for the info, this is what my Aunt & I decided on.

Bonnie has asked to honor her mother, “Marcella Chatigny” by making donations in lieu of flowers to Greyhound Rescue, Inc. They are a non-profit charitable organization that helps place retired racing Greyhounds into loving forever homes. Please mail your donations to:

Greyhound Rescue, Inc.

Karen and I send our condolences, Kitty. We lost 3 parents in one year a couple of years back and even though they were old and sick, it was still a very painful parting. Many good memories remain and I see from your post you're already working on those too.

Henry & Karen

Barb and I are very sorry to learn of your mon's death. I recall your mother well from Buttonwood, inparticular talking to your mom about the trip you make out West. It was quite an adventure.

If there is anything Barbara and I can do please feel free to call on us.
