Marianne Theresa Johnson-Reddick born Jan 4, 1935 and died alone on Aug. 30, 2013. She is survived by her 6 of 8 children whom she spent her lifetime torturing in every way possible. While she neglected and abused her small children, she refused to allow anyone else to care or show compassion towards them. When they became adults she stalked and tortured anyone they dared to love. Everyone she met, adult or child was tortured by her cruelty and exposure to violence, criminal activity, vulgarity, and hatred of the gentle or kind human spirit.

On behalf of her children whom she so abrasively exposed to her evil and violent life, we celebrate her passing from this earth and hope she lives in the after-life reliving each gesture of violence, cruelty, and shame that she delivered on her children. Her surviving children will now live the rest of their lives with the peace of knowing their nightmare finally has some form of closure.

Most of us have found peace in helping those who have been exposed to child abuse and hope this message of her final passing can revive our message that abusing children is unforgiveable, shameless, and should not be tolerated in a "humane society". Our greatest wish now, is to stimulate a national movement that mandates a purposeful and dedicated war against child abuse in the United States of America.

I thought this was interesting and sad. Thoughts, anyone?

I saw this earlier. Evidentally, this "person" was so bad NV allowed her kids to divorce her. It is said her son had her drugged and had sunglasses put on her so she couldnt see him.

I have a hard time imagining a parent as monsterous as was described in the papers. If its true my heart goes out to her adult children.

I could have written this obit word for fucking word. Problem is I had no brothers or sisters to support my claims and a mother that was well know and very influential in the community with ample resources.

I would not have been believed and was threatened with being committed if I said a word.

I was abandoned by drs that didn't question how a 4 year old had no hymen and repeated infections, family friends, neighbors, teachers, friend's parents that wouldn't get involved even when they substantiated.

I received a letter a couple years ago from a family friend that asked for forgiveness for never stepping in and her exposure was limited.

This is why I'm a pretty big advocate for men. The assumption of women being best parents, the most likely to be victims of DV is actually flawed. Solid research backs that up and my personal experience both as a child and a payroll manager. Men often get screwed. Bad.

This obit is unusual. Sadly, the horror detailed is not. I'm glad they have each other for support. Sometimes the kindest thing these twisted fucks ever did in their lives is die.

I may have to borrow this for the day my mom dies.

Wow. How horrible that this is the legacy she leaves. If true, my heart goes out to everyone that suffered at her hands.

Both of my parents are now gone, but after reading something like this, I thank God that I had a normal and loving childhood.

Wow.

I'm likely to get hit by a few 2x4s here, but I will go out on a limb and applaud whoever had the intestinal fortitude to speak their truth. I hope they find peace in it.

Personally, I am sick of the way etiquette dictates that we should never speak ill of the dead. Most obituaries paint people in such a positive light that it's difficult to believe that everyone who dies is not destined for sainthood.

The fact is, there are people in this world who are shit. They enjoy hurting people - sometimes destroying them completely, and will go out of their way to do it. They are horrendously evil, either to their families or to complete strangers, or to both, yet operate within the boundaries of the law.

When they die, why should their praises be sung in an obituary? Why bother making them out to be normal, pleasant people, when they clearly weren't? Why should their actions be exonerated on paper in the form of a touching obit?

If this is a new trend, I'm all for it. It might make people a little more accountable in how they live their lives...and if it doesn't, at least the survivors will get the last laugh.

((Uncertain one)) I am so sorry that you had those experiences. Sorry for anyone that has to live with this.

Makes me want to go vigilante for all abused children.

((((Little girl UO)))) I am so sorry. You are a testament to the power of the human spirit to preserve in the face of terrible cruelty.

((((Adult UO))))

And I thank God that my two children will be able to say the same.

How horrible for the poor children. My heart breaks for them. There must be a special place in hell (if it exists) for people who abuse and torture innocent babies.

Good.
