Big Jim’s House

Weekdays 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

This may be one of the most controversial obituaries ever written…The question is, would you post it if you were the news paper? This obituary has went viral after a family posted it in memory of their mother who recently passed away..Today’s What Would You Do question is…If you’re the paper do you post this?

Since this story has came out there has been some updates to the woman’s story…

Redwood Falls Gazette general manager Lisa Drafall told HuffPost the family paid for the obit to run, but she wouldn’t address whether it caused a debate in the newsroom.

At least one of Kathleen Dehmlow’s relatives thinks she isn’t getting a fair shake.

Dwight Dehmlow told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that the facts as related in the obit are true but “there is a lot of stuff that is missing.”

Dwight Dehmlow, who wouldn’t specify his relationship to the deceased, said, “The sad thing about this is there is no rebuttal. There is more to it than this. It’s not simple.”

He said she lived in a nursing home the last year of her life and her sisters were there when she died.

“She made a mistake 60 years ago, but who hasn’t?” he said. “Has she regretted it over the years? Yes.”
