Even when you’re six feet under, you can still get one last dig. And lifelong Chicago Bears fan Elizabeth Bowman is (no longer living) proof.

Bowman died on Monday, but she used her obituary in the Chicago Tribune to lay out her feelings about Jay Cutler one last time. Cutler isn’t the most popular athlete around—he even landed a spot alongside Lance Armstrong in a Forbes slideshow of the most disliked athletes in America. And while Cutler is probably somewhat used to taking jabs for his performances and moody behavior, Bowman’s roast from beyond the grave has to be a new one.

The obit reads:

Elizabeth Porter Bowman, 78, of Northbrook, Illinois died peacefully January 9, 2016, surrounded by her children. Betsy was an elementary school teacher and later a tutor, but her passion and focus was being a dedicated and involved mother and grandmother. She was a woman of loyalty, integrity, opinion, curiosity and intelligence. A lifelong fan of the Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears (except Jay Cutler)

Savage even in the afterlife.
