Mary Brewer

September 8, 1925 - June 24, 2018     Age: 92

Mary Eugenia Brewer, age 92 of Fernandina Beach, FL passed away on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at Baptist Medical Center-Nassau.

She was born on September 8, 1925 in Brooklyn, New York to the late Anthony and Antonina Gruszczak.

She graduated from Lyman Memorial High School in 1943. She then went on amazing adventures with her best friend Mary to New York which she loved to tell stories about.

Not long after, Mary met the love of her life, Tim Brewer. They were married for 50 years.  Mary became a very proud Navy wife.  They went on to have four children which they both were so very proud of.  They gave their children, Kathy Campion, Tony Brewer, Bill Brewer and Patty Sloper the gift of teaching them to always love and take care of each other, and the love of God.

Mary enjoyed writing for a newspaper, The Venice Gondolier Sun and working in an old fashioned apple store.  She also enjoyed going to Jamaica and playing Bingo.

Most of all she loved helping raise her granddaughter, Jennie, who in turn, enjoyed taking care of her grandmother to the very end.  She loved and felt very blessed with her six grandchildren and many great-grandchildren.  Mary will be so missed, but her stories and memories will never be forgotten.

The family would like to thank everyone for all their love, support and prayers.

Funeral services will be private.
