Mary Anne Noland, a 68-year-old grandmother from Richmond, Virginia, passed away on Sunday, May 15. But like any informed citizen, she wasn't going to let something as silly as dying prevent her from getting the last word. That's why her obituary in the Richmond Times-Dispatch contained one last timely dig at the current presumptive presidential candidates.
The obit begins:
NOLAND, Mary Anne Alfriend. Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at the age of 68.
Despite what a savage dig that was (extra pointed coming from the recently departed), Noland's widower Jim told WWBT News it was not intended as a particular takedown of either current candidate. Rather, it was written by one of their sons as a tribute to Mary's feisty sense of humor.
RIP Mary Anne Noland. The electorate is worse off without her.
