Kids take one last stab at their abusive mother -
Marianne Theresa Johnson-Reddick born Jan 4, 1935 and died alone on Aug. 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 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.
The above obit which has since been removed, originally appeared in the print and online edition of Nevada's Reno Gazette-Journal on Tuesday.
Apparently the children whom Cedar suspects are not a bunch of youngsters decided to have the last word.
Which brings up the point of obituaries in general. It used to be the obits were free, but now days the Observer charges, and even tries to lure readers and family members to "fund" the obituary or "send a gift".
Reddick's family might be pleased at her passing, and I'm glad I didn't get to know her. On the other hand I'm disappointed I didn't get to meet Michael "Flathead" Blanchard whose obit showed up in the Denver Post last year.
Blanchard, Michael "Flathead"1944 ~ 2012A Celebration of the life of Michael "Flathead" Blanchard will be held on April 14th, 3 pm 8160 Rosemary St, Commerce City. Weary of reading obituaries noting someone's courageous battle with death, Mike wanted it known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow doctors' orders and raising hell for more than six decades. He enjoyed booze, guns, cars and younger women until the day he died.
Mike was born July 1944 in Colorado to Clyde and Ethel Blanchard. A community activist, he is noted for saving the Dr. Justina Ford house from demolition and defending those who could not defend themselves.
He was a Republican delegate, life member of the NRA, founder and President of the Dead Cats MC. He loved music.
Mike was preceded in death by Clyde and Ethel Blanchard, survived by his beloved sons Mike and Chopper, former wife Jane Transue, brother Stephen Blanchard (Susan), Uncle Don and Aunt Cynthia Blanchard (his favorite); Uncle Dill and Aunt Dot, cousins and nephews, Baba Yaga can kiss his butt.
So many of his childhood friends that weren't killed in Vietnam went on to become criminals, prostitutes and/or Democrats.
He asks that you stop by and re-tell the stories he can no longer tell. As the Celebration will contain Adult material we respectfully ask that no children under 18 attend.
