Madeleine P. Cosman, Dead at 68

Quote: "Ms. Cosman also leaves behind a vast library of illuminated manuscripts and a large collection of handguns."

The bestest obit ever published by the New York Times; it's so good, in fact, that Ms. Cosman came back from the dead just to read it.

Here's the second-bestest:

Sheb Wooley, Who Sang of Purple People Eater, Dies at 82

Yeah, OK so they died a few years ago, that's not the point. The point is that their obits are still a scream, and you know how much the NYT loved to publish anything positive about (egad!) handguns, or about Purple People Eaters.
