This could be the most scathing obituary ever

A Minnesota woman who died at the age of 80 last week will not be missed by her family, who let the public know about it in a biting obituary.

Kathleen Dehmlow passed away on Thursday in Springfield, Minnesota, USA. According to her obituary in the Redwood Falls Gazette, she was not a very good person.

It states that after she married Dennis Dehmlow in 1957, the couple had two children, Gina and Jay. Five years afterward, “she became pregnant by her husband’s brother Lyle Dehmlow and moved to California.”

“She abandoned her children, Gina and Jay, who were then raised by her parents in Clements, Mr and Mrs Joseph Schunk. She passed away on May 31, 2018 in Springfield and will now face judgment. She will not be missed by Gina and Jay, and they understand that this world is a better place without her.”

A photograph of the original obituary in the newspaper’s print edition made the rounds on Twitter, where it went viral.

If she indeed left her two kids under the care of her parents then that shouldn't be construed to tantamount to abandonment of her children.

Grandparents are also parents; I so presume.

You are right to say that grannies are also our parents...but the situation should dictate why we should leave our children with them!

Abandonment calls for total neglect for your children. It looks as though she practically "threw" the kids at their grannies, and then away to marry her BROTHER-IN-LAW!

Of course the kids are right to be annoyed with her! Seriously if you were the grandparent what would you say about this also?

There are so many Ginas and Jays in this world who don't deserve this kind of treatment. Kathleen was one of this people who didn't value the gift she got, and instead passed on responsibility to another person. Our grannies are not our housemaids!

No. Grand parents are for spoiling their grand-children and should not have the responsibility of raising the second generation.

I am not a grand father yet and I look forward to being a good grand parent if/when that time comes.
