"They had pictures of me blown up into posters that said rest in peace Brittany, and my aunt eventually had obtained one of the obituaries and sent pictures of it," said Brittany Johnson-Webster.
This obituary said "Brittany finished her story on October 27, 2018. She was called to meet all the loving animal babies on the other side of the rainbow."
"I was kind of stunned. It was a whole rush of emotions," said Johnson-Webster.
She said she lives nearly three hours away from where her mother held her memorial service, in Ferguson, Missouri.
"My brother actually died and here my mom is faking my death. You know I was upset, I was angry, but more than anything, I was sad," she said.
The memorial service was held at the Ferguson Heights Church of Christ on Nov. 10, 2018. Complete with a solo, remarks, and a repass, the church's representative said they had no idea the service was a sham.
