Renay Mandel Corren, R.I.P.

If you, like me, “collect” humorous and unusual obituaries, here is one for your collection. It’s long, but worth the read. I never met Renay Mandel Corren, but, after reading her obituary, I wish I had.

Here is an excerpt:

“There will be a very disrespectful and totally non-denominational memorial on May 10, 2022, most likely at a bowling alley in Fayetteville, NC. The family requests absolutely zero privacy or propriety, none what so ever, and in fact encourages you to spend some government money today on a 1-armed bandit, at the blackjack table or on a cheap cruise to find our inheritance.”

My thanks to newsletter reader Victor T. Jones, Jr. for telling me about  this obit.
