An irreverent obituary for a Texas woman remembers her as Larry King’s ex-girlfriend, a redneck, and bawdy.

Renay Mandel Corren’s obituary was written by her son, a writer and talent manager in New York City, WNBC reported.

The obituary takes a humorous look at Corren’s life, saying, “There will be much mourning in the many glamorous locales she went bankrupt in: McKeesport, PA, Renay’s birthplace and where she first fell in love with ham, and atheism; Fayetteville and Kill Devil Hills, NC, where Renay’s dreams, credit rating and marriage are all buried; and of course Miami, FL, where Renay’s parents, uncles, aunts, and eternal hopes of all Miami Dolphins fans everywhere, are all buried pretty deep. Renay was preceded in death by Don Shula.”

The Fayetteville Observer, which first published the obituary, reported it was shared on Twitter nearly 2,000 times in two hours after a crime writer tweeted it out with the simple message, “This obit, my god.”

The obituary states, “There will be a very disrespectful and totally non-denominational memorial on May 10, 2022, most likely at a bowling alley in Fayetteville, NC. The family requests absolutely zero privacy or propriety, none what so ever, and in fact encourages you to spend some government money today on a 1-armed bandit, at the blackjack table or on a cheap cruise to find our inheritance.”

The funny obituary closes with emotion, reading, “Please think of the brightly-frocked, frivolous, funny and smart Jewish redhead who is about to grift you, tell you a filthy joke, and for Larry King’s sake: LAUGH. Bye, Mommy. We loved you to bits.”
