Whatever Wednesday: Write Your Own Obituary

Whitney Leigh Street

July 13, 1990-August 21, 2013

Whitney Leigh Street, adrenaline junkie, blogger, and avid Harry Potter fan died on Thursday, August 21, 2013.

Whitney was a quality control technician for a local quarry by day, but spent most of her time swimming, writing, singing, dreaming and desperately trying to teach her dog any other trick besides "shake."

Her main goals in life were to achieve some sort of a degree from any bonafide education program, invent something that would make her filthy rich which ultimately would enable her progression on successfully transforming into a mermaid.

Her greatest joy's in life were her husband Landon J Street (deceased) whose suicide was quick to follow the news of his sweet wife's death, any journal/diary/notebook she ever met, a perfectly grilled- grilled cheese sandwich and the life sentence to Azkaban for Dolores Umbridge.

Whitney excelled in laughter, love and buying numerous journals that she never intended to write in.  She loved spending weekends in the pool and getting tan enough to last her through the winter months.  And when the snow did fall, she found herself tumbling off every ski lift she could find; truly testing the flexibility of all her most important ligaments.

She prided herself in her fluency of movie quotes, sarcasm and Argentine Spanglish.  She never missed a chance to make a Hot Rod reference and truly looked for the inappropriate connotations in conversations.  Her motto is life was, "that's what she said."

It was the little things.  She never wanted to pass up the opportunity to make someone smile.  She was a shoulder to cry on, a friend to call in the middle of the night if you're jonesing for Taco Bell, and a genuinely happy-to-be-here down-for-anything kinda gal. She will be missed, but not forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation to the Harry Potter Alliance or adopt a Hippogriff from your local magic animal shelter.

  1. Hahaha her life motto. I love it.

    Poor Landon, RIP.

    These posts are making me laugh but I never want any of you guys to die. Well, not until I meet you first, ya kno?

  2. You should change your life's calling to obit writer. This was awesome. Or maybe you could write for the Onion?

    Adopt a Hippogriff in your honor... I think we will do just that.

  3. You have an obituary- writing gift. I hereby order you to write mine someday.

    I laughed OUT LOUD at "truly looked for the inappropriate connotations in conversations."

    RIP Landon.

    and i love that you excelled in laughter. that is the best skill to have.

  8. Uh, how I wish you lived next door Whitney.
