(Meredith) – Phedre Fitton’s family describes her as “very funny” and “having a cheeky sense of humor.” And that was clearly demonstrated after she pranked her husband for years after her death.

Fitton passed away from ovarian cancer four years ago and her dying wish was for her husband, Nigel Fitton, to remember to water her plants.

So, Nigel watered them and cared for them for years, but he couldn’t figure out why his bathroom floor was always wet.

Years later, their daughter, Antonia Nicol, was helping Nigel move from his home in Johannesburg, South Africa to a retirement home when they discovered Phedre’s final prank.

The flowers she’d asked her husband to care for with her dying breath weren’t real. They were plastic.

Nicol tweeted the photo, which quickly went viral.

“There wasn't much light in the bathroom, so my mum had replaced the plants with plastic ones. None of us knew,” Nicol wrote in a message on Thursday to CTV News. “We all found it hilarious. Especially my dad who had been so impressed he hadn't killed them off.”

Phedre’s sense of humor was one of her defining qualities, her family said.

“She was very funny. Had a cheeky sense of humour for sure,” Nicol wrote in one comment to CTV News. “It's really made us all happy as a family to remember her like this.”
