Ms. Reddick recently died and her obituary was put in the local paper by her eight (grown) children. However, the newspaper ended up pulling the
obituary because it needs to be 'investigated'. Ms Reddick was the subject of a child abuse investigation during the time she was raising the
children. Even though the children wanted to be free of this mother, the courts forced them back to live with her. Years later, the state senator
introduced legislation that would allow children to terminate their relationships with biological parents. That legislation was inspired by this
Here is the obituary for the abusive mother -
Obituary of Marianne Theresa Johnson
Marianne Theresa John¬son- Reddick born Jan 4, 1935 and died alone on Sept. 30, 2013. She is sur¬vived by her 6 of 8 children whom she spent her
lifetime torturing in every way pos¬sible. 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 after¬life 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 unforgiveable, 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.
So what do you think?
- The adult children are getting revenge?
- The adult children are working out their issues and it'll take a long time?
- It's a proper obituary for an abusive person?
- The adult children have to forgive and raise themselves up higher than the woman.
- This obituary is a good thing because it'll shame other abusers into realizing how bad they are?
- Respect the dead because they can't defend themselves so drop the obituary?
Should the paper have pulled the obituary?
If the obituary is accurate, should they reinstate the obituary?
