Obituary Says Woman Chose Death Over Trump and Clinton-Truth!

Summary of eRumor:
An obituary for a woman named Mary Anne Noland says that faced with the prospect of death or voting for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Noland chose death.
The Truth:
Reports about Mary Anne Noland’s light-hearted obituary are true.
Marry Anne Noland died in Richmond, Virginia, on May 15th at the age of 68. Her obituary, which was published by the Richmond Times-Dispatch on May 17th opened with a funny jab about the current state of American politics:

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.

Of course, Mary Anne Noland didn’t actually choose death over choosing between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Rather, she had a great sense of humor and her friends, acquaintances and former colleagues said as much in comments posted in her guestbook.
Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time that an obituary published by the Richard Times-Dispatch has gone viral during this election cycle. In January, Donald Trump tweeted a link to the obituary of a man named Ernest Overbey, Jr., which ended with a request for people to vote for Trump.
