A recently departed Bears fan was not going to let her death get in the way of letting everyone know how she felt about the franchises oft-maligned starting quarterback.

78-year-old Elizabeth Porter Bowman died earlier this month after cheering on Chicago teams for her whole life with the notable exception of Jay Cutler.

She was a woman of loyalty, integrity, opinion, curiosity and intelligence. A lifelong fan of the Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears (except Jay Cutler).

Bowman’s family has asked for donations to the Minnesota Special Olympics in lieu of flowers, so anyone else who is not found of the perpetually grumpy-looking quarterback can show their support for Elizabeth’s dedication here.
