FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Norma Brewer, 83, of Fairfield, died last month of a stroke after being wheelchair bound for more than a year. She was a beloved mother and grandmother, and apparently, very fond of practical jokes.

Her obituary, which the Lesko Polke funeral home confirmed she had written and submitted herself,read as follows:

Norma Rae Flicker Brewer, a resident of Fairfield, passed away while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.  She never realized her life goal of reaching the summit, but made it to the  base camp.  Her daughter, Donna, her dog, Mia, and her cats came along at the last minute.  There is suspicion that Mrs. Brewer died from hypothermia, after Mia ate Mrs. Brewer’s warm winter boots and socks.

Brewer’s daughter, Donna, told the Connecticut Post that the prank was quite typical of her mother, who “always had stories, many of which were not true, but [she] thought were funny.”

Looks like Grandma Brewer got the last laugh!
