This grandmother 'chose death' over Trump and Clinton

Mary Anne Noland wasn't too enamoured with the possibility of a President Trump or a President Clinton - and she decided not to stick around.

The 68-year-old grandmother from Virginia passed away last Sunday and her family used her obituary to get a dig in at both presidential candidates.

“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.”

Bit drastic.

Her husband of 46 years, Jim Noland, told NBC12 that one of her sons wrote the obituary as a joke in honour of her 'feisty' sense of humour and said she is smiling down from heaven laughing along with them.

There's been no word from the beyond on how she feels about the Bern.
