Newspaper apologizes to family for not publishing mother’s anti-Trump obit

Frances Irene Finley Williams passed away on Nov. 21 and loved ones said they wanted to make it clear that the 87-year-old believed Trump had a bad impact on her final years.

The homemaker was critical of Trump’s temper, immigration policies, views on women’s rights and ethical standards, her daughter, Catherine Duff, and son, Art Williams, told NBC News on Thursday.

…“Her passing was hastened by her continued frustration with the Trump administration,” the obit said.

The paper balked and said it wouldn’t run the submitted obit unless the Trump line was removed.

…”We were in the midst of grieving, and it was Christmas. We were notified of this on Christmas Eve, and didn’t feel like we had much of a choice and didn’t have the emotional energy to fight that fight,” Art Williams said.

And now, weeks later, the paper has apologized and said Williams’ obit should have run as written.
