BRENNER, Maryellen Fisher
Mary Ellen Fisher was born on February 18, 1956, and passed on July 22, 2009, in Lancaster, California after battling a brain tumor for over 11 years. She was born in Santa Monica and grew up in Thousand Oaks during the 60s ~ 70s "hippie-era" with her parents, sister and brother. Maryellen got her Bachelor of Music in Piano from Pacific Lutheran University, teaching credential at UCSB, and Master of Arts in Education from San Diego State University.
She met her husband, Marty Brenner, in the Peace Corps in Kenya where she taught music from 1980 to 1982. "It was an adventure!" They were married in 1983, and have spent their lives here in Lancaster raising one daughter and one son.
Maryellen was employed by the Eastside (for one year) and Lancaster School District where she LOVED teaching Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 4th grades since 1983. "I never thought of it as a job. I felt blessed to be teaching those children." Throughout her life she was involved in the United Methodist Church and the lives of her family, friends, and neighbors.
She leaves behind her husband Marty, daughter Adrienne and son Ross; parents Robert and Margie Fisher of Thousand Oaks; sister, Carrie Ericksen (Rick) and niece Julie of Goleta; brother, Randy Fisher (Teri), nephew Joshua and niece Amanda of Bremerton WA; aunt Shannon Woodall (Claude) of Anacortes, Wash.; uncle Butch Smith (Lynn) of Camarillo; and aunt Patti Blair (Bob) of Chatsworth. Maryellen will be greatly missed by her family, former students of Linda Verde School, and many friends.
A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m., Tuesday, July 28, 2009, at Oakwood Memorial Park, 22601 Lassen Street, Chatsworth.
A Celebration of Maryellens Life will be held 10 a.m., Saturday, August 1, 2009, at Lancaster United Methodist Church, 918 West Avenue J, Lancaster.
In lieu of flowers donations may be sent in her memory to the Lancaster United Methodist Church.
Arrangements entrusted to Halley- Olsen-Murphy, Lancaster.
