Elaine Szumanski Fydrych, 63, was definitely a woman of words and expressions. While her husband referred to many of her comments as “wisecracks” and “tongue-in-cheek,” those who knew her felt that her last words were right on the mark. And in her obituary, she didn’t disappoint with her comment about presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Fydrych’s obituary can be found many places online. However, it’s officially held by Gardner Funeral Home, in Runnemede, New Jersey. Essentially, it gave a rundown of her life’s accomplishments and endeavors. She was a Broadway actress, hailing from New Jersey. She was married to Joseph A. Fydrych for 37 years, and had children. The list of accomplishments goes on for paragraphs.
Amid Elaine Fydrych‘s acting career, as reports Fox News, she was also a comedian in her latter years. Yet, while acquiring her comical stage presence, she also acquired a strong political view. And that view potently opposed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. According to the news source, after the Benghazi hearings pertaining to Clinton, Elaine didn’t agree with her stance at all. Fydrych’s husband told the source as follows.
“The more she found out about Hillary, the more she didn’t like her and thought it would be a complete catastrophe if the U.S. elected her president.”
Well, interestingly enough, Elaine’s dying wish correlated with her dislike for Hillary Clinton. According to Fydrych’s obituary, it wasn’t flowers that she wanted at all. Rather, specifically, it states as follows.
“Elaine requests, ‘In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton’.”

In response, Joseph told Fox News that it was assuredly in her character to make such a request.
“Elaine was a very beautiful woman inside and out. She was very talented, and she did a lot of comedy, and always had a line, a wisecrack…
If you knew Elaine, you’d say ‘yep that’s Elaine’. It was a fitting end for the woman. It was very appropriate that she go out this way.”
The source also states that, although the request was slightly comical, it was most-definitely serious.
And since then, those who have mourned her death — as well as several conservatives who’ve caught wind of the request — have paid their respects via an online guest book. There, many signees state that they would “never” vote for Hillary Clinton.
