Sorrowful Goodbye to One of our Own

Dear Junior Friends,

It is with much sadness that I write to inform you of the untimely death of one our Junior Friends members, Elizabeth Fawn Slack Pignatello. Elizabeth and her boyfriend, Shannon Beebe, were killed in a plane accident on Sunday afternoon. She is survived by her two children, Nino and Bella.

Elizabeth has been a member of Junior Friends since 2004 and has always been a great supporter of The Campagna Center and our events as a patron, volunteer, and model. She always lit up the room when she walked in with her smile and kind disposition.

Elizabeth's family has asked that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be made to

Isabella F. and Anthony R. Pignatello Scholarship Fund
c/o Collin Robinson
6582 Alderwood Way
Gainesville, VA 20155

or to

Crohn's & Colitis Foundation, National Processing Center
...Attn: Honor & Memorial Gifts
PO Box 1245
Albert Lea, MN 56007-9976

A funeral service will be held on Monday, August 15th at 11:00am at Christ Church in Old Town with a reception to follow.

If you are able to donate food for the reception, you may sign up at the following link. It is with the hope that this list will be updated in the future as needs arise for her family and children.
