Obituaries are having a moment right now. Whether for their succinctness or odd requests, it seems like some dearly departed people can't help but make one last solid joke. Mary Anne Alfriend Noland was apparently no different—rather than sit through another six months of campaign coverage and vote in the upcoming presidential election, she died. Seriously.
"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," her obituary begins. There are a number of groups, for a number of reasons, choosing to not vote in this upcoming election, and even some politicians, but Mary Anne Noland, mother of three and "Grammy" of 10 has truly shown her real thoughts about this election with her decision.
Here's what the obituary looked like in today's Richmond Times-Dispatch:
According to the rest of her obit, people are encouraged to make memorial contributions to CARITAS in lieu of flowers. CARITAS provides homeless services to the most vulnerable residents of Richmond.
