This is sad. A great-grandmother in North Carolina received a nasty obituary last month in the local paper, and it’s since gone viral. The death notice claimed Cornelia June Rogers Miller “died alone after a long battle with drug addiction and depression,” KDVR reports. Unfortunately, it didn’t stop there.
“Drugs were a major love in her life as June had no hobbies, made no contribution to society, and rarely shared a kind word or deed in her life,” the obituary states. “We speak for the majority of her family when we say her presence will not be missed by many, very few tears will be shed, and there will be no lamenting over her passing.”
The deceased woman’s son is fuming, saying she was a “loving, generous woman.” He’s pointing the finger at his sisters. However, a local TV station spoke with one of the sisters, who denied the accusation, calling it “tragic.” That leaves the other sister, who hasn’t stepped forward yet.
To make matters worse, parts of the piece were plagiarized from one written in 2008! I’m confused whether the author was serious or playing an awful joke. Maybe she was a terrible mom, but still. Some things are better left unsaid.
