Norma Brewer, 83, of Fairfield, Fla. died in January of a stroke. She was a loving mother and grandmother, and as it turns out, a big fan of practical jokes.

Her obituary, which the Lesko Polke Funeral Home confirmed she had written and submitted herself, read as follows:

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.

Not only is that story completely fabricated, but Mrs. Brewer had been wheelchair-bound for nearly a year at the time of her death.

Donna, Norma's daughter, told The Connecticut Post"She always had stories, many of which were not true, but thought were funny."
