A week ago news broke that Shona Ferguson who was an actor and founder of Ferguson Films has died. The family revealed that he died from Covid-19 related complications after spending weeks in hospital.
Shona was buried on the 4th of August and only few guests attended the ceremony due to Covid-19 protocols. On Friday 6 August a memorial service was held in his honour.
Connie and Shona Ferguson loved each other and their love story inspired many. The issue of their age gap also came to light leaving many South Africans speechless because many were not aware of their age gap.
Shona Ferguson was 47 years old at the time of his death. Connie is 51 years old meaning she was 4 years older. This was against the myth that men should be older in marriages and relationships.
Connie respected her husband and she allowed him to lead. She also looked younger than her age. Many believed that women age faster and if they are older they will want to wear pants in the house.
However this was not the case in Connie and Shona Ferguson’s marriage. In summary Shona and Connie Ferguson’s marriage was a power house and it broke so many stereotypes.
