Posting Obituaries From The Grave

This week featured yet another Posthumous Obituary.

Via Politico’s On Media blog:

Betty Ford lives longer than the writer who wrote her obit in the WaPo.

The writer? Donnie Radcliffe. Her obit is here.

Radcliffe joins a growing list of late chroniclers of the late, which includes:

Bob Hopes [sic] Obit writer has been dead for two years!

Elizabeth Taylor Outlives Her NYT Obituary Writer Mel Gussow

And – via The Atlantic Wire – this postbituary:

Philadelphia Inquirer obituary writer Gayle Ronan Sims died two months before an obituary she had written of Ed McMahon was published in June 2009 for the paper.
