Being a Mets fan didn't kill her

Print Article

Every now and then, we find something to chuckle about in the most unlikely place in the newspaper, the obituary section. Usually, it's an obit about someone with spunk, who liked to laugh and didn't take themselves too seriously. 

This is one of them.  

 

"Marylou Cunningham Belles, of Bethel, CT died July 13th, 2012, after giving cancer the finger for 27 years. Since the 13th fell on a Friday, it was a perfect day for the Stephen King fan she was. She was born in Malone, NY to the late Ruth and John Cunningham, and graduated from Potsdam High School in Potsdam, NY. She loved cats, and shared her life with four rescues from Save a Sato. She was also a lifelong NY Mets fan though surprisingly, that wasn’t what killed her. She is preceded in death by her husband, Edward Belles. She is survived by her daughter, Melinda Belles-Preston, son John Belles, and a pack of wily grandsons. The memorial will be private. In lieu of flowers the family is requesting donations be sent to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary at bestfriends.org."

 

This 'Obit of the Week, was featured by journalist and national media watcher, Jim Romenesko, on his jimromenesko.com blog. It was originally published in the Daily Courier-Observer in Potsdam, New York.
