      Living Sylvania resident wins free $5,000 funeral

      Coyle will award the winner of the contest on Friday.

      A Toledo funeral home has awarded a free burial to a living person.

      In 2013, Coyle Funeral and Cremation Services announced an essay contest to comemorate their 125th anniversary.

      The business asked contestants to submit entries recounting a humorous funeral experience.

      On Tuesday, Coyle announced that Sylvania Resident Petra "Pat" Moreno was selected at the contest's grand prize winner.

      Moreno will receive a $5,000 gift certificate for funeral services and merchandise offered by Coyle Funeral and Cremation Services.

      She'll also receive a night on the town, including a chauffeured limousine, dinner and movie tickets for her and a guest.
