Virginia woman chooses death vote Trump Clinton conundrum—it's a tough one indeed, and we're kinda inclined to go with the first option too sometimes
Now, that’s what you call serious campaign fatigue.
One of the woman’s sons made the claim in the obituary for Mary Anne Alfriend, which ran in the Richmond Times Dispatch:
NOLAND, Mary Anne Alfriend. Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15, 2016, at the age of 68.
Born in Danville, Va., Mary Anne was a graduate of Douglas Freeman High School (1966) and the University of Virginia School of Nursing (1970).
A faithful child of God, Mary Anne devoted her life to sharing the love she received from Christ with all whose lives she touched as a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, friend and nurse.
Mary Anne was predeceased by her father, Kyle T. Alfriend Jr. and Esther G. Alfriend of Richmond. She is survived by her husband, Jim; sister, Esther; and brothers, Terry (Bonnie) and Mac (Carole).
She was a mother to three sons, Jake (Stormy), Josh (Amy) and David (Katie); and she was "Grammy" to 10 beloved grandchildren.
A visitation will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 17, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 903 Forest Ave., in Henrico.
A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, May 18, 1 p.m., with a reception to follow, also at Trinity UMC.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to CARITAS,www.caritasva.org P.O. Box 25790, Richmond, Va. 23260
The 68-year-old grandmother died Sunday, following a brave battle with lung cancer.
And, although we totally get where she’s coming from, it turns out that Mary Anne’s son was just joking.
Jim, her husband of 46-years, says the political quip was included in the obit to pay tribute to Mary Anne’s sense of humor.
He tells WTVM that the whole family is devastated by Mary Anne’s death, but hope the obit “captures her spirit and celebrates her essence.”
Jim goes on to say that “Mary Anne is smiling down from heaven laughing along” with them.
Rest in Peace Mary Anne Alfriend.
