RENO, NV – A shocking obituary in a Nevada newspaper has a whole town talking. The piece in the Reno Gazette Journal is about a woman who died and is survived by her children.

The obituary says the woman spent her life torturing her children in every way possible including abuse, neglect, violence and criminal activity. It also says the surviving children are glad she’s dead. The obit goes on to say the family is celebrating her passing and hopes she finds no peaceful rest.

But, there is one obvious mistake in this obit that leaps out at the reader. It has the woman’s birth year listed as 1935 but her death is listed as September 30, 2013. Later, the date of her death was confirmed as August 30.

The newspaper actually took down the online submission of the obit.
