This Week In Weird News: A Spiteful Obituary

A woman's children write a shocking obituary in her remembrance.


Growing up, it's inevitable to have a few spats here and there with your parents. They make mistakes and we, their kids, do as well. Have you ever taken one of their mistakes to heart?

80 year-old Kathleen Dehmlow passed away on May 31st of this year in Springfield, Minnesota. You're probably wondering: why is this news? Because of the obituary left in her memory.

Dehmlow, in 1957, married her husband Dennis and they had two kids - Gina and Jay. After five years of marriage, Dehmlow became impregnated by her husband's brother, Lyle, and moved to California with him, abandoning Gina and Jay who were then raised by her parents. Obviously still upset with their mother for leaving them, Gina and Jay wrote quite a nasty obituary in her remembrance. In the photo shown below, Gina and Jay started off the first two lines well. The third line and the ones following are where it all went downhill.

Kathleen Dehmlow's obituary.

When the memorial blew up on the internet, it was removed almost immediately.

Dwight Dehmlow, a relative, said that "there is a lot of stuff missing from the obituary." He also went on to say that "she made a mistake 60 years ago, but who hasn't? Has she regretted it over the years? Yes."

Some took to the internet and commented on the obituary, leaving "well-wishes" for the deceased.

10 TV Shows You Need To Watch On Hulu

Hulu is slept on


I have recently moved to watch shows and movies on Hulu and Netflix. Hulu has a lot of great shows and movies to offer that aren't on Netflix. While Netflix is still great, Hulu is definitely starting to grow on me. Here are some shows that I have watched or have started watching on Hulu that I think are pretty great!

1. 11.22.63

If you love James Franco and Stephen King, you'll love this show. The first episode is a bit long, but all the other episodes are only 45 minutes. The plot line is pretty interesting. I also like that it doesn't tell you everything, it shows it to you and you piece things together.

2. The Act

The fact that this show is based on a true story is just insane. The acting is really great, especially if you watch actual videos of Gypsy, Joey King does a great job.

3. Castle Rock

Another Stephen King masterpiece. This show is riveting and really makes you think about what the truth is in the context of the story, and brings in some ethical questions.

4. Future Man

I've only recently started this but it's pretty interesting and funny.

5. The O.C.

The O.C. (TV Series 2003–2007) - IMDb

This show was great. Sometimes it was a bit annoying, but it is a classic show from the early 2000s. You really become invested in all the characters and your opinion may change on some characters because they grow and develop throughout the show.

6. The Handmaid's Tale

If you've read the book, you should definitely watch the show.

7. Obsession: Dark Desires

I just love true crime stories and this really dives deep into crime stories and the darkest parts of humanity.

8. Intervention

This show can be really sad or frustrating, but I think it's good for people to see the reality of addiction.

9. Smallville

Smallville (2001-2011)

I also started this one very recently and I've always wanted to watch it. It can be cheesy but it's pretty entertaining.

10. Brooklyn Nine-Nine

This is a great show if you want to laugh. I love all of the characters and everything they bring to the table.
