Peacefully on Sunday, November 6, 2022 with her family by her side our Mowgli entered into rest in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ at the age of 31 years old.

Acelynn was a loving daughter, sister, niece, cousin and granddaughter.  She leaves to mourn her parents Cliff and Rhonda Lawler, brothers Dylan, Ashton and Chevy, sisters Stephanie and Sabrina, two fur babies Serabi and Finn, second parents uncle Luke and auntie Tanya “Y”, she also leaves behind her uncles Brent, Matthew, Ellis (Delma), Keith, Kevin, aunties Cynthia, Tania “I” and Beverly, coo coo Pauline (Ron), coo coo Velda, coo coo Anne, grandpa Joe (Marge) and grandpa Clifford Thomson and her childhood friend Danielle. Mowgli was predeceased by her grandparents James and Theresa Catcheway, grandparents Gilbert and Flora Catcheway, grandpa’s Alphonse, Georgie, Larry and Arthur, uncles Gordon, Louie and Kenny and auntie Beatrice.

Mowgli was born April 27, 1991 in Dauphin, MB.  She was raised in Skownan, MB until family relocated to Portage la Prairie, MB in 1996, later moving to Winnipeg, MB where she attended school and graduated at Kildonan East Collegiate.  Mowgli was a certified veterinary assistant.   Acelynn worked in the dietary at Lions Prairie Manor in Portage la Prairie, where she would also help care for the elderly.  In Winnipeg she worked in a doggy daycare, where she cared for many pets.  Everyone who knew Mowgli; knows how much she cared for the elderly and pets, she developed special bonds with each elder and pet.  Mowgli gave her time and generosity to always helping everyone around her with a smile and never complaining.  She went out of her way and made herself available when needed, anytime of the day or night.

She was the organizer of all family dinners and gatherings, always making sure to take pictures of the family.  Mowgli tirelessly worked and helped with funeral arrangements for all family members who passed on before her.  She was a loving and strong willed woman with a heart of gold.  Auntie Tanya “Y” was her driving instructor when she was learning to drive, they got into several fender benders during the process.

Mowgli surrendered her heart and life to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. She would read her Bible that was gifted to her by Grandpa Georgie.

Our Mowgli fought bravely everyday with the sickness she contended with and without any complaints.

Mowgli will always be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her family, friends and all those who knew her.
