PROVIDENCE, R.I. (CBS) -- Even in death, one New England Patriots fan is making her support for Tom Brady clear.
Rhode Island native Barbara "Gigi" Shippee, 74, died peacefully on Wednesday in Florida, her obituary in The Providence Journal states.
The great-grandmother is wishing Brady well as he fights a four-game suspension for his alleged role in DeflateGate, and is asking mourners to do the same.
"In lieu of flowers please make memorial contributions to 'Tom Brady's Deflategate Defense' as she was the Ultimate Patriots Fan or to the charity of your choice," the obituary says.
Brady is next due in court August 31.
