Obituary: Don’t vote for Hillary
RUNNEMEDE — An American woman has used her obituary to make a final request to friends and family: Please don’t vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton for president.
Elaine Fydrych’s husband said she was a registered Democrat and not “a political person.”
But he said she grew to strongly dislike Clinton after the deadly 2012 attacks in Benghazi and believed Clinton’s handling of the matter as secretary of state was “terrible.”
A bipartisan report on the Benghazi attack spread blame among the State Department, the military and US intelligence but didn’t name Clinton.
Joe Fydrych, of Runnemede, said his 63-year-old wife told him a few weeks before she died on 13 August of her plan for her obituary. She told him it was up to him whether to include the line about Clinton, but he said he felt he had to honor his wife’s wishes.
The last line of her obituary says: “Elaine requests, ‘In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton.’”
