When Marianne Theresa Johson-Reddick died in a hospital, her son Patrick shouted ‘Ding dong, the witch is dead!’ While these words would shock most people, Patrick’s elation is completely justified. In her obituary, Patrick revealed why he was so happy she was finally dead.
Marianne Theresa Johnson-Reddick born Jan 4, 1935 and died alone on Aug. 30, 2013. She is survived by her 6 of 8 children whom she spent her lifetime torturing in every way possible. While she neglected and abused her small children, she refused to allow anyone else to care or show compassion towards them. When they became adults she stalked and tortured anyone they dared to love. Everyone she met, adult or child was tortured by her cruelty and exposure to violence, criminal activity, vulgarity, and hatred of the gentle or kind human spirit.
On behalf of her children whom she so abrasively exposed to her evil and violent life, we celebrate her passing from this earth and hope she lives in the after-life reliving each gesture of violence, cruelty, and shame that she delivered on her children. Her surviving children will now live the rest of their lives with the peace of knowing their nightmare finally has some form of closure.
Most of us have found peace in helping those who have been exposed to child abuse and hope this message of her final passing can revive our message that abusing children is unforgivable, shameless, and should not be tolerated in a “humane society”. Our greatest wish now, is to stimulate a national movement that mandates a purposeful and dedicated war against child abuse in the United States of America.
Johnson-Reddick was a cruel woman who exposed her six children to a life of physical, mental, emotional, and sexual abuse. She regularly beat and abused her children who were forced to grow up in a house Johnson-Reddick used to run a prostitution ring. Patrick and his five siblings were ultimately placed in foster care, but never truly escaped their mother’s wrath until she was finally laid to rest. Now Patrick and his sister Katherine reveal the truth about their mother’s cruelty in a hope to raise awareness for other abused children.
