Nan’s Self Penned Obituary Goes Viral

A grandmother’s obituary has gone viral after she jokes about getting the ‘smoking hot body’ she always wanted as she’s being cremated.

Sybil Marie Hicks, from Ontario, penned her own farewell with the help of three of her five children.

The mum passed away ‘peacefully’ on February 2, and her obituary was published in her local paper The Hamilton Spectator – but it’s since gone viral after being uploaded to the internet.

Sharing bizarre but hilarious anecdotes of all of her kids, and reveals her husband’s ‘special friend Dorothy’ will now be looking after her husband.

And the grandmother-of-13, who died aged 82, said: “I finally have the smoking hot body I have always wanted… having been cremated.”

She wrote: “I leave behind my loving husband, Ron Hicks, whom I affectionately referred to as a ‘Horse’s Ass’.

“I also left behind my children whom I tolerated over the years; Bob (with Carol) my oldest son and also my favourite.”

“Please come say goodbye and celebrate my wonderful life with my husband and his special friend Dorothy who is now lovingly taking care of my horse’s ass.

“For those of who are wondering who assisted my in writing this… it wasn’t my husband, it wasn’t my oldest, nor was it my youngest.”

The obituary ends with Sybil saying: “I am off to swim to the buoy and back.”
