Maria Paz Fuentes Fernandez, who died on June 2, 2021 banned her family members from attending her funeral. She used her obituary in a newspaper to publish an exclusive guest list for her funeral.
She wrote: “Since my family has not been by blood for a long time, I declare in my last will and testament that only the people mentioned below can attend my funeral service, be it at the funeral parlour, church or cemetery.”
The woman listed 15 names allowed to be present to pay their last respects.
The obituary was published in the El Progreso newspaper in Lugo, Galicia, and has since gone viral online.
Mixed reactions greeted the woman’s actions on social media.
One Twitter user said: “If they left her alone during her life, they can get lost with their hypocrisy, well away from her funeral. Great lesson from this lady putting them in her place.”
