WASHINGTON (CNN) — A woman’s obituary published Monday has found a new way to respond to the tumultuous and contentious 2016 presidential race.

The obituary published in the Richmond Times-Dispatch states that the late Mary Anne Noland, 68, of Richmond, Virginia decided to “pass” instead of vote in the 2016 presidential election.

“Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God,” the obituary reads.

Her husband Jim Noland told NBC12 that one of her sons wrote the the obituary and it was meant as a joke, a way for her family to continue her sense of humor.
