Woman who loved Halloween hailed as ‘freakin legend’ for ‘best obituary ever’

A woman named Holly Blair passed away on August 17, leaving behind a husband, three children, four spoiled cats, two stinky dogs, three bad birds, a turtle and an utterly useless frog named Fred.

This is according to her obituary, which was recently published in the Idaho Mountain Express.

The obituary was later shared online and has since gone viral, due to it’s quirky Halloween theme and amusing tone.

Holly’s obit jokes that she was a “wicked witch” and that when she died, she “exploded into glitter and bats”.

Alongside this, it features a photo of Holly, wearing a black pointed witches hat.

It goes on to discuss her plans for the afterlife, which include “drinking beer with Terry Pratchett” and “flying across the moon on her broomstick on Halloween”.

The full obituary reads: “Holly Blair exploded into glitter and bats on Aug. 17, 2020.

“She is survived by four spoiled cats, two stinky dogs, three bad birds, a turtle and an utterly useless frog named Fred, as well as three children and a husband of little to no importance.

“Her remains will be interred under a tree with the ridiculous multitude of animals she rescued, both wild and domestic.”

It continues: “Her future plans include drinking beer with Terry Pratchett and flying across the moon on her broomstick on Halloween.

“She has also promised to communicate with us from the beyond via the cockatiel psyche.

“We ask that everyone carve extra jack-o’-lanterns on Halloween this year in her honor.

“All hail the wicked witch of Juniper Road!”

People on social media who saw the obituary were incredibly amused, with some proclaiming it to be the best they had ever seen.
