Our mom loved all of us, every one. She loved fishing and her camps at Portage and Cross Lakes. She put on the best Christmas Eve parties with the house being so full of people we thought that the walls would burst. Her lobster feeds were always the best and no one ever left camp hungry. Thanks mom for always trying to keep track of those “Brewer Boys”, nobody could have done it better. Thanks for making your one and only daughter a strong and independent person like you. You will be greatly missed by all, but mostly by your number one love, “Boger”.
She is survived by her husband of sixty plus years, Boger Brewer of Mars Hill; five children, Ted Brewer and his wife, Christine, of Blaine, Terry Brewer and his wife, Patty, of Mars Hill, Tim Brewer and his fiancé, Toby Adelman, of California and Mars Hill, Gary Brewer and his special friend, Cindy Thibodeau, of Mapleton, and Lori Long and her husband, Ralph, of Blaine; as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also leaves behind four siblings, and several nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by a son, Todd Brewer, a daughter-in-law, Jondalyn Brewer, a granddaughter, Amanda Rae, and several brothers and sisters.
The family would like to thank the loving staff at the Aroostook Health Center for all of their fine care and compassion.
A graveside service will be held at a later date at Tapley Cemetery in Blaine. In lieu of flowers donations in Shirley’s memory may be made payable to the Aroostook Health Center in c/o Dunn Funeral Home, 11 Park St., Houlton, ME 04730.
