She enjoyed riding horses and making adorable pillows for her grandchildren. But an 86-year-old grandmother was also famous with her family for her sharp wit and quick insults that left everyone in stitches.
So, it wasn’t a huge surprise to the family of Grandmother Ruth, when she wrapped up her obituary with some choice words for anyone thinking of voting for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. From the Mirror:
“She enjoyed riding horses, crocheting pillows for her grandchildren, and cooking her signature pasta casserole. As stipulated in her will, Ruth wanted to make sure her obituary included this final line: “If you vote for Donald Trump, you seriously must be a fucking dumb ass.”

The image, which has been posted to Imgur, has racked up nearly 400,000 views and hundreds of comments such as, “I wanna be Ruth at 87,” “Ruth will surely be missed. The ones with common sense always go too soon,” and “The number of ruthless people are now one Ruth less.”
Politically themed obituaries are not a new phenomenon but this is the first anti-Trump last message we’re aware of. Last year, one man’s obituary also made headlines when he “respectfully” asked friends and family to not vote for Hillary Clinton. That obituary, posted online here, generated more than 100 comments from acquaintances who used his passing to comment on how they are going to vote in 2016. Unfortunately, the anti-Trump obituary doesn’t seem to have made its way online yet but you can bet Grandma Ruth would have something to add if she were still around.
