She Told Her Family Not To Write A Depressing Obituary - What The Wrote Is Hilarious

Though is seems like her kids could be a little cruel Mary Patricia Stocks, known as “Pat” to those who were close to her, wouldn’t have it any other way. Though it seemed mean, you could tell her obituary was written with lots of love. This is because she begged her family to fulfill one wish when she died peacefully at the age of 94.

The Toronto woman did not want her death to be a solemn affair, according to AMW.com. She wanted her loved ones to celebrate her life and her character after she was gone. So she made them promise her that her obituary would be funny, just like she was.

“...She left behind a hell of a lot of stuff to her daughter and sons who have no idea what to do with it. So if you’re looking for 2 extremely large TV’s from the 90s, a large ceramic stork (we think) umbrella/cane stand, a toaster oven (slightly used) or even a 2001 Oldsmobile with a spoiler (she loved putting the pedal to the metal), with only 71,000 kilometers and 1,000 tools that we aren’t sure what they’re used for. You should wait the appropriate amount of time and get in touch. Tomorrow would be fine.”

It goes on to boast of her “master” culinary skills.

“She believed in overcooking everything until it chewed like rubber so you would never get sick because all germs would be nuked. Freezing germs also worked, so by Friday our school sandwiches were hard and chewy, but totally germ free. All four of us learned to use a napkin. You would pretend to cough, spit the food into it and thus was born the Stocks diet. If anyone would like a copy of her homemade gravy, we would suggest you don’t.”

Pat was very lucky to have her family abide by her unconventional wishes.
