She's Dead But Glad He's Gone

Mike Boyles tipped me off to this obituary of a woman in Belleville, Illinois, who died a few days ago at age 88. In addition to the usual mentions of her family members and the memorial service, it also includes a bit of sports commentary:

"Mrs. Eckert was...an avid Wednesday night bingo player at VFW, when she was younger and playing softball she led the league in batting, she made several quilts, enjoyed cooking and baking, and she was a big Cardinals fan, she was glad to see Ray King traded."
