Our good friend Darlene Brennan, known as the feisty SheLion here on Free Republic has passed away. We had an inkling that she was sick, but she kept her own counsel when we would ask about her declining posts on FR.

We'll all miss one tough fighter for freedom.

God bless Darlene Brennan

Holy ****.
I had no idea.

RIP She.
You fought the good fight.
You tried to educate people about the dangers of incremental socialism.

Rest now and know that others will carry on.

Born in Thomas, West Virginia. Now that, folks, was a small town girl. Beautiful country there and I’m sure she’s returned to someplace equally beautiful.

Prayers up for Darlene and family.

Notre père, qui êtes aux cieux!
Que votre nom soit sanctificié. Que votre règne vienne.
Que votre volonté soit faite, sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donnez-nous aujourd'hui notre poindre ce jour.
Pardonnez-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi a ceux, qui nous ont offensés,
et ne nous soumetez pas à la tentation, mais délivrez-nous du mal.
Car c'est à toi qu'appartiènne, le régne, la puissance et la gloire, pour les siècles des siècles.
Amen.

Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.

Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Oh, No! I noticed she wasn’t around as much, but I just figured it was the normal ebb and flow of our busy lives.

She will be missed. RIP, SheLion.

One of my favorite Freepers. Feisty, Informed, and indeed a fighter for our declining rights.

She will be missed. God Speed, SheLion. Prayers for the repose of your soul, and for your FRiends and family left behind.

Heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of our dear freeper sister, SheLion.

Over the years, we had a lot of freepmail correspondence. She was always upbeat, witty, intelligent....she cut to the chase and had much inner strength.

God rest her soul. We will sorely miss her here at FR.

Sad day. She was such a sweetheart and kept her sense of humor, even under the oppressive Baldacci regime. She certainly persevered, and mustered amazing strength after the sudden passing of her husband. God grant her peace. RIP, Darlene. You sure will be missed.

Thank you for this ping. I was concerned that her posting was decling, however I had no idea that she was ill.

God be with her family in this time of sadness, but I will celebrate her feisty spirit while knowing she is now holding her beloved husband’s hand.

God bless this brave and powerful woman, even as He blessed *us* with her presence...

This world exalts that which does not matter - beauty, wealth, fame; but in the world to which Darlene has gone, all that which she is will be celebrated in the Halls of God. Brave, loyal, and humble, the great and wonderful SheLion basking in the presence of her King!
