Norma F. Brewer, of Fairfield, Connecticut, U.S., was a prankster, a character trait to which her surviving relatives eagerly attest. Her most recent – and final – case in point is the first paragraph of her obituary, which she penned herself:
Norma Rae Flicker Brewer, a resident of Fairfield, passed away while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. She never realized her life goal of reaching the summit, but made it to the base camp. Her daughter, Donna, her dog, Mia, and her cats, came along at the last minute. There is suspicion that Mrs. Brewer died from hypothermia, after Mia ate Mrs. Brewer's warm winter boots and socks.
