A Connecticut woman found a way to make her loved ones laugh one more time after she passed away.
Norma Brewer died at the age of 83 last month, but not before penning her own humorous obituary.
Brewer died of a stroke, but according to the obituary she wrote for herself, her death came under much different circumstances.
According to Norma's obituary,
Norma Rae Flicker Brewer, a resident of Fairfield, passed away while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. She never realized her life goal of reaching the summit, but made it to the base camp. Her daughter, Donna, her dog, Mia, and her cats, came along at the last minute. There is suspicion that Mrs. Brewer died from hypothermia, after Mia ate Mrs. Brewer's warm winter boots and socks.
Of course, that didn't actually happen, but it's great to see Brewer had a sense of humor about things up until the very end.
Her daughter, Donna, said,
It was just typical Mom. She always had stories, many of which were not true, but thought were funny. People who don't know my mother are bemused. People who know my mother are laughing and saying, `Yeah, that's Norma.'
Well, color me "bemused." Rest in peace, Norma.
