The family of an American woman who died recently put out an obituary saying she passed away to avoid the spectre of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the upcoming presidential election.
The obituary of 68-year-old Mary Anne Noland of Richmond, Virginia claimed she died to avoid the increasingly likely choice between Republican Trump and Democrat Clinton in the November 8 US presidential poll.
“Faced with the prospect of voting for either Trump or Clinton, Noland chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday,” read the obituary which was published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch on May 17.
Her husband, Jim Noland, said that one of their sons wrote the satirical political line and that it was not an attack on either candidate, but rather a way to carry on Mary Anne’s sense of humour. His wife passed away after a long battle with lung cancer in May.
