Obituary for Bella Waddell

It is with a heavy heart and great sadness, that we inform you of the passing of Bella. She passed away at 8:24 p.m. Saturday, October 27, 2018 in the loving arms of her father with her mother holding her paws.

We have had Bella in our lives for 10 wonderful years. She will be missed by our family, work family and most of all her parents.

Bella was born August 30, 2008 at Kirkpatrick’s Rock Creek Kennel in Pittsburg, IL to sire: Master Bogey Russell AKC no: RM35107701 and Dam: Rock Creek’s Anna Grace AKC no: RN03251401.

She chose Janice and Jeffrey Waddell as her adoptive parents on October 31, 2008, when Janice went to choose a pet for Jeff, Bella went right to her and wouldn't leave her. It was love at first sight for Jeff. For the first days that she was with her new family, Jeffrey carried her everywhere, for he thought she didn’t know how to walk. That first day was hectic for Bella as she rode on the console in the truck on her new pad to run errands from Murphysboro, IL to Harrisburg, IL. The pad is still in the truck to this day.

Bella became a big part of the funeral home, she started coming in to work with her father when she was 8 weeks old and many families asked for her when they came in to make arrangements, visitation and services.

She has traveled across the country with her parents from Virginia this last July to Tennessee in the Smoky Mountains on vacation and to Texas to visit extended family and many states in between.

Leaving behind to cherish her memory, are her parents, Jeffrey and Janice Waddell; her adopted siblings, Precious and Baby.

It is our wish to have her cremated, for her to be with her parents and to continue traveling and eventually to be buried with her father.

If you wish to remember Bella, please make memorial donations to the University of Illinois Veterinary Teaching Hospital, 1008 West Hazelwood Drive, Urbana, IL 61802 or to Wright Way Rescue Shelter, 8459 Old Highway 13, Murphysboro, IL 62966.
