An obituary written in a Reno, Nevada newspaper is shocking everyone who sees it.
What the children of Marianne Johnson-Reddick wrote about their mother is not something you see every day.
Marianne was abusive throughout their childhood, and Patrick and Katherine took her death as a chance to tell the world.
“On behalf of her children, who she 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,” the obituary reads.
The two did not write the critical obituary to simply vent their anger towards their mother. They wrote it in an effort to raise awareness about the abuse that thousands of innocent children suffer every day.
“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,” the obituary reads. “Our greatest wish now is to stimulate a national movement that mandates a purposeful and dedicated war against child abuse in the United States of America.”
Not only did she regularly beat her children, but this woman actually ran a prostitution ring out of their home. Patrick and Katherine were exposed to horrible things. Finally the two of them and their siblings were placed in the foster care system.
As Marianne was dying, Patrick decided to go visit her in the hospital. She became so violent towards her son that the doctors had to sedate her. It’s no wonder then that when she died, Patrick said aloud, “Ding dong, the witch is dead.”
Marianne’s children are still dealing with the long lasting effects of the trauma she forced upon them.
But by writing this brutally honest obituary, they are courageously bringing the issue of child abuse into the light.
