On March 31, 2018, Kathleen Dehmlow passed away at the age of 80. The obituary of the Minnesota resident appeared in the Redwood Falls Gazette. Because of the unusual words that were composed about Kathleen in her obituary, it has gone viral, and people are sharing it around the world.


The Washington Post reports that the obituary of Mrs. Dehmlow seems completely normal in the beginning, stating her date of birth, where she was born, and it mentions her parents Joseph and Gertrude Schunk.

This probably sounds familiar to people who read obituaries, but after that, it starts to take a very unusual turn. In fact, the words that follow become quite dark.


The article goes on to mention that she was impregnated by her husband's brother, and she moved away to be with him in California.

The obituary immediately begins to tell about how Kathleen abandoned her two children who wrote the piece for the paper. Their names are Gina and Jay, and they were raised by their mother's parents Joseph and Gertrude.

After the obituary states that she has passed away in Springfield, Minnesota, it goes on to say that she will "now face judgment." This is an ominous statement to foreshadow the next words that are to follow.

The obituary concludes by stating that Kathleen Dehmlow will not be missed by her children. Not only that, but Kathleen's children also assert that the world will be a better place now that she is dead.

Do you think it was appropriate for the woman's children to write such scathing remarks about their mother even though she abandoned them? Let us know your thoughts in the comments, and send a link to your friends if you think they would be interested in this unique story.
