Barbara Lee Mingrone Obituary
October 21, 1918 - January 20, 2014 After reading many obituaries for friends and family, over the years, Barbara wrote her own, as follows: Write it Light When I depart this mortal coil, I'd rather you didn't spoil my obit with such inane clauses as "passed away from natural causes" or classify my main achievement as limited to your bereavement. It can be brief, my final bio, including stats like "from Ohio," but, I'd prefer you didn't write it that all I did with age was fight it-- and I will haunt the trite wiseacre who shrinks my life to fit "Homemaker". How pleasant could it just be writ: "Bon voyage to a soul of wit.". No flowers or donations please, just be kind to the ones you're with.
