No love lost for 80 year old Springfield, Minnesota woman, Kathleen Dehmlow who has a scathing obituary posted on her behalf on the Redwood Falls Gazette. Social media is divided.
Passing away at her Springfield home on Thursday was Kathleen Dehmlow and judging from the published obituary, the elderly woman’s death could not have come fast enough.
According to the obituary, upon marrying Dennis Dehmlow in 1957, the couple had two children, Gina and Jay who as it is revealed the mother soon eventually abandoned after running off with her husband’s brother.
Five years afterward, Dehmlow notes the obituary ‘became pregnant by her husband’s brother Lyle Dehmlow and moved to California.’
‘She abandoned her children, Gina and Jay, who were then raised by her parents in Clements, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Schunk.
‘She passed away on May 31, 2018 in Springfield and will now face judgment.
‘She will not be missed by Gina and Jay, and they understand that this world is a better place without her.’
A photograph of the original obituary in the newspaper’s print edition made the rounds on Twitter, where it went viral.
A majority of social media users poked fun at Kathleen’s romancing, while others applauded Jay and Gina for not holding back with their ‘tribute’ noted the dailymail.
However, a few were dismayed at the obituary and admonished the Redwood Falls Gazette for publishing it.

It takes courage to tell the truth. Just because someone is dead, doesn’t mean they become a saint, and there’s no rule saying a child must forgive an abusive, unloving parenthttps://t.co/0eSKoSVnbG
