Thank you for visiting Mom's Caring Bridge page. While we are still shocked and unbelievably heartbroken with her sudden death on Weds morning, we are finding many things to be grateful for. She did not die alone, her death was fast and she was not suffering. She was looking forward to visiting the beach at Wild Dunes --one of her favorite places that she had many special vacations with family and friends. She picked up her grandson Conor from school on Tuesday and he was able to play her one of his favorite songs. She had been in touch with many friends and family lately to catch up prior to the holidays. She was looking forward to making her mother's peanut butter fudge for Christmas. As we've contacted Mom's friends and family the last few days with the news, we've heard so many Jayne stories and have loved hearing them. We've uploaded pictures of her many adventures and will be adding stories of our own. As we are holding off on doing any services at this time, we'd like to encourage everyone to contribute their Jayne stories, and pictures if you have them, to this site. We'll collect them and share at her Celebration of Life parties. We hope to do one in Charlotte and one in Chillicothe over the summer which would have been her 80th birthday.
We'll be creating memory cards to send, in the meantime here is the link to her obituary: https://www.dignitymemorial.com/obituaries/charlotte-nc/mary-fadden-9951124
One of Jayne's greatest wishes was for a cure for her granddaughter Aislinn. Aislinn has a rare, fatal genetic disorder called Sanfilipo Syndrome. In lieu of flowers, she would want friends and family to donate to Aislinn's wish -- aislinnswish.org/take-action (http://aislinnswish.org/take-action
And for those who knew how much she loved footballs on Sunday -- would encourage you to raise a toast in celebration of her today.
Kathy, John and Brian
