Teacher's Sassy Obituary For Herself Is Going Viral for All the Right Reasons

Apr 02, 2015

Florida school teacher Emily Phillips, who died March 25 at 69 after battling pancreatic cancer, wrote a spirited obituary for herself that has gone viral since running in the Florida Times-Union on Tuesday.

Here are some of the most memorable lines from Phillips, a proud mother, grandmother and wife (or, as she referred to herself, "Grand Diva Of All Things Domestic"):

• "It pains me to admit it, but apparently, I have passed away."

• "Once again I didn't get things my way."

• "So…I was born; I blinked; and it was over. No buildings named after me; no monuments erected in my honor."

• "Today I am happy and I am dancing. Probably naked."
