Newspaper Pulled Obit That Shamed Mother

As I told you yesterday, a brother and sister from Minnesota trashed their mother in her obituary. Gina and Jay Dehmlow described their mother Kathleen Dehmlow’s extramarital affairs and how she abandoned them when they were younger for her new life with their uncle. They even went so far as to say, “this world is a better place without her.” Well since the story has gone viral, the “Redwood Falls Gazette,” that originally published the obit has now taken it down.

It’s being reported that some readers asked the paper to take it down as they felt it was in poor taste to publish it. General manager Lisa Drafall of the paper says that the family paid for the obituary, but couldn’t say more on the matter.
