Darnedest Political Obituary

We depend upon records to reveal the “truth” about the past. Yet sometimes records have anomalies. Some are amusing or humorous. Some are interesting or weird. Some are peculiar or suspicious. Some are infuriating, or downright laughable. Records say the darnedest things!

Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton...

“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.”

Yes, records say the darnedest things!

    1. I find it humorous & assume Mrs Noland had a sense of humor her self.

  2. That's the dumbest obituary I've ever heard. Mary Anne appears to be a lady who lived a life full of love of God, family and caring for others. Does the person who wrote this want others to believe she choose to die?

  3. It does sound a little like a suicide.

  4. People often need information on several related options available on obituaries. For that, people need some sources that can offer comprehensive information for obituary search, obituaries newspaper, genealogy search, death notice obituary, funeral obituary, newspaper obituary archives, free obituary search, recent deaths obituaries, death notice archives, and local newspaper obituaries.
