Crappiest obituary ever?

It says a lot about the quality of news source if they find it important to do not-quite-funny word play when people die. A recent example comes with the death of cosmetics empire builder Estee Lauder. On news.com.au that becomes (switching to headline font)

Estee lauded for her common scents

That headline would suck on any news story about Lauder - but on her obituary... That's just a little too fresh, upbeat news for me.
