Obituaries are generally written to commemorate the life of the recently deceased. Whoever scripted the life and times of Marianne Theresa Johnson-Reddick apparently missed that point when marking her passing.

According to News 4 in Reno, President and Publisher of the Reno Gazette Journal, John Maher, said the obituary was submitted online through a “self-service” platform. It was later removed from the website during an investigation.

The obituary, as it was originally written, stated Johnson-Reddick died September 30. News 4 later confirmed a woman with the same name died on August 30.

Following is the original, unadulterated obituary from the Reno Gazette Journal:

January 4, 1935 Sept. 30, 2013

Marianne Theresa Johnson-Reddick born Jan 4, 1935 and died alone on Sept. 30, 2013. She is survived by her 6 of 8 children whom she spent her lifetime torturing in every way possible. While she neglected and abused her small children, she refused to allow anyone else to care or show compassion towards them. When they became adults she stalked and tortured anyone they dared to love. 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.

On behalf of her children whom she so abrasively exposed to her evil and violent life, we celebrate her passing from this earth and hope she lives in the afterlife reliving each gesture of violence, cruelty, and shame that she delivered on her children. Her surviving children will now live the rest of their lives with the peace of knowing their nightmare finally has some form of closure.

Most of us have found peace in helping those who have been exposed to child abuse and hope this message of her final passing can revive our message that abusing children is unforgivable,  shameless, and should not be tolerated in a “humane society”. 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.
