An interesting obit from the Mpls paper


Recommended Posts

I can't figure out where to post this, so I'm putting it here. My "read" on it is that one or more of her kids is/are really mean.

Person's Name

[Name], died peacefully on August 24, 2005 at the age of 77 of heart disease which resulted from her smoking cigarettes from 1947- 1981. She worked as a nurse for over three decades at Eitel Hospital and Abbott-Northwestern Hospital. She ended her nursing career as the head nurse in the Well- Baby Nursery at Abbott- Northwestern, where she cared for thousands of babies and families and touched many lives with her teaching.

My mom is a big obituary reader and we had one in our paper that was nasty involving alcoholism. It was worded something like...died 8/1/05, cured of alsoholism 8/1/05. Guess it is better to do that pre-planning and write your own obit.

I guess, where the alcoholism one is concerned, some people just have to have the last word. Anyone knowing that particular person would know that they suffered from alcoholism and that it was cured when they died - same can be said for any human affliction, death cures it all.
