Original Article

Posted By:drive, 9/12/2013 9:12:22 AM

RENO, Nev.– It´s an obituary like you´ve probably never seen before. It’s about a woman who died and is survived by her children who, according to the obituary, spent her lifetime torturing them in pretty much every way possible. The obituary goes on to paint a picture of children who are grateful that their mother, Marianne Theresa-Johnson Reddick, is dead. The Reno Gazette Journal President & Publisher John Maher tells News 4 the obituary was sent in via a self-service online submission. The obituary appeared in the print edition of the newspaper today, September 10th. The on-line version of the obituary

As the old saying goes, be nice to your kids. They pick your nursing home.

And they write your obituary.

Funerals and obituaries are supposed to be where everyone "plays nice," because someone has just died, and we are expected not to speak ill of the dead. I recently attended the funeral of a mean and vicious uncle who died. He terrorized his wife for sixty years; all of his children feared him. He was respected in the community, because he put on a very good show, but for those of us who saw his rage, we could never respect the man. I watched him beat his dog to death and torture his children in mean ways. I wanted to speak at his funeral, and all my family advised against it, as I would have talked about some of his many vicious episodes, and it made me sick to hear all his family praise this bad man.

Respect has to be earned, it is not a given.

If the person was bad then why is it we have to be nice when they pass on...we should celebrate one less terrible person is among us and that includes the truth at their funeral, no matter what.

While I understand the need for the family to speak out against a horrible person. They should have done this while she was alive. Unless there was an inheritance involved (and isn´t that usually the case?) and they didn´t want to be "cut out" by speaking up.

They should have just skipped the Obit altogether, paid for the cheapest burial available and let her death go unnoticed. THAT is a better revenge.

I was separated from my husband when he died at age 60. It could have been classified as a mysterious death in a hospital but the kids and I didn´t care. I didn´t have to go thru a divorce.
I´m the merriest widow in all the land. And I used part of the life insurance money to buy some cute leather boots- ´these boots are made for walking´(He kept lying when he should have been truthing.)

How could she have died on Sept 30, 2013 when that is 18 days in the future? This means she has time to read her own obituary.

As a retired pastor, I am all too aware how often the truth about a person is glossed over in obituaries and at funerals. My question in this particular case is whether the same thing may be going on but in the opposite direction. An anonymous obituary, apparently written not by the woman´s children but on their "behalf," and so unremittingly negative, makes me suspicious that something else is going on. It is also interesting to note that nothing was reported on the family´s reaction to the obituary. The paper was wise to remove it and investigate further.

The obit wasn´t vicious, the woman was. They shouldn´t have pulled it. This is the legacy of an evil, vile life that should be exposed.
It gave her victims closure and they were right to speak up now.

Trying to tell people the truth about an abuser is almost impossible while the abuser is alive. No one believes anyone could be that horrible to their own children or spouse.
Pray these poor victims can heal now.

So, a local newspaper pulls an obit from its pages so no one will see it; then Drudge puts it on his page. My guess is that the hits went from next to nothing to through the roof. I guess I hope Marianne earned this obit as opposed to meanness on the part of someone else.

Once they established the obituary as from a legitimate family source, the paper should have left it up. Not every death that occurs is mourned.

When my own Dad passed, my sisters, who never had to live with him, were all tears and sadness. I lived under his roof. He was a vile, vicious coward of a man who loved to get drunk then beat me and his then wife, he loved to hurt the farm animals- vicious- but fortunately, like I said, too cowardly to go after people who could defend themselves- his own father called him the worst name he could think of- "A rascal". But, he could put on a good act when he had to. Fortunately for me, when I became an adult, I personally told him to his face what I thought of him. Then I had nothing more to do with him- I washed my hands and cleansed my soul of him. If I could have written his obituary, I would not have said anything- nothing! Not one word! In my book, that´s the worst thing you can do to a person- let them pass without a word. Their memory evaporates, they leave nothing behind and that, to me, is the worst possible punishment a human being can suffer.

We should not speak ill of the dead, no matter how vile or hateful.
Just buy the cheapest casket you can find and bury him/her with a token service in an unmarked grave.
Then spend whatever inheritance is available on something of which you know the un-dearly departed would not have approved.
(BTW, dancing on the grave should also draw a penalty flag for excessive celebration.)

As much as I completely agree with not doing some happy clappy feel good obituary, this choice does except make people want to know salacious details of the past, which is now history. The better way to let the world know this woman would have been to buy the obituary space and frame one sentence in the middle of the space that says: Jane Doe died on whatever date. She leaves a legacy that is best buried with her.

I am 99% sure this "obituary" is a hoax. The death date of September 30,2013 (more than 2 weeks into the future), gives the hoax away. So don´t get too worked up about this "obituary."

If it´s not a hoax, then may be the children plan to kill her on September 30, 2013, and they want her to read her obit before they knock her off.

As woody allen once said, Life is comprised of the horribles and the miserables. A horrible is someone living with something tragic, like blindness. A miserable is everyone else.

So when you go through life, you should be happy you´re just a miserable.

I agree... the death of a vicious person should pass entirely unnoticed, unremarked. Uncelebrated in life and unmourned in death. The less said, very much the better. Move on. Be better. A nasty obit only hurts those left behind and reopens old wounds.

Re 17
Thanks for posting the background.
These children were also abused by a State-dingy Harry´s State-that put the rights of the parents over the needs of the children.
They needed to affirm their abuse publicly as the subjects of a public court case to bring closure.
This isn´t a " vicious" obit -it is merely accurate.

I have a mother that fits this obit...sad to say. Some say that the children should say nothing. Well, they have said nothing for years. Said nothing while getting a beating not justified on any human being. Saying nothing may cancel the life of this monster, but sometimes saying something gives you a voice denied you as a child. I know...been there...and the hag that birthed me is still living at age 80. I´ll remember this obit when it´s time.

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday.

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident.

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services.

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

President Obama today sought to make light of a stinging public rebuke from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who took the president to task for disparaging GOP lawmakers while seeking to make a deal on immigration reform. Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
