Woman Opens Up About Writing Mom’s Scathing Obit
RENO, Nevada — A woman says she’s received support from around the world after she helped write a scathing obituary about her mother when she died last year.
Katherine Reddick and her brother wrote the obituary, according to Daily Mail, and it quickly went viral.
A portion of it stated: “Everyone she met, adult or child was tortured by her cruelty and exposure to violence, criminal activity, vulgarity, and hatred of the gentle or kind human spirit.”
It went on to say, “On behalf of her children who she so abrasively exposed to her evil and violent life, we celebrate her passing from this earth and hope she lives in the after-life reliving each gesture of violence, cruelty and shame that she delivered on her children.”
Reddick says she doesn’t regret the obituary — through it, she said she met several of her siblings after they’d grown up in different foster homes, according to Daily Mail.
She said their purpose behind the obituary was to raise awareness about child abuse: the woman’s children claimed they suffered from abuse, which included being forced to sleep on the floor, according to Daily Mail.
