New Jersey Woman’s Dying Wish: ‘Do Not Vote For Hillary Clinton’

A New Jersey woman who died last week asked for one final thing in her obituary: “In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton.”

Elaine Fydrych, who died of lung caner at age 63 on Thursday, made the request in her obituary, which was published South Jersey Times.

“If you knew Elaine, you’d say, ‘yep that’s Elaine.’ It was a fitting end for the woman,” her husband, Joseph, told foxnews.com. “It was very appropriate that she go out this way.”

Fydrych appeared on children’s TV programs, grew to love theater and acting, and was “a natural at comedy,” according to her obituary.

“The more she found out about Hillary, the more she didn’t like her and thought it would be a complete catastrophe if the U.S. elected her president,” her husband told Fox.

Her dying wish appeared by Wednesday to have gained traction in conservative circles, with strangers flocking to her guest book on the website legacy.com to offer their condolences and vow to fulfill her wish.
