An explanation for why Eudocia Tomas Pulido's obituary was so misleading. It lays the blame firmly at the feet of Alex Tizon, who recently acknowledged that Pulido was his slave.

Six years ago The Seattle Times wrote an obituary for a local woman who seemed to have lived a life of devotion to her family. But now it’s been revealed as something drastically different.

Tuesday night, I read with horror and growing anger Alex Tizon’s account in The Atlantic magazine of Ms. Pulido’s life with three generations of his family, and his journey to come to terms with it.

Editor’s note: A reporter’s final story

‘Lola’ Pulido lived life of devotion to family (2011 obituary)
Many of the details were familiar, as Tizon had shared them with me during a long interview following the death of a woman he knew as “Lola,” an honorific title in her native Tagalog that Tizon took to mean “grandmother.”

In retrospect, the obituary reads as a whitewash for a fundamental truth known only to Tizon and his family: Ms. Pulido was a slave.
