Obituary

Lena J. Brewer died on February 2, 2007 at the Morningside Assisted Living Center. She was 92. Born October 21, 1914 in Dickerson, MD, she was the daughter of the late John
Lewis Jones and Nellie Jane Titus Jones. After graduating from Poolsville High School she attended Strayer Business College in Washington DC. She was married to the late
George W. Brewer for 69 years. She is survived by her daughter & son-in-law, Betty and Edward McCullough, and daughter, M. Joan Brewer. She was a grandmother to seven
and great grandmother to seven.

Mrs. Brewer was a longtime member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church and an active member of the Holy Trinity Sodality. She was a member of the Glen Burnie Improvement
Association and enjoyed working the annual carnival. She was an active member of the North Arundel Auxiliary for many years and was in charge of the monthly book sale. She
had over 18,000 volunteer hours with the Auxialiary. Lena enjoyed baking, gardening, and crafts, especially the needle arts.

Note: In the St. Mary's baptism records, dated June 15, 1915, is the following about her baptism, "The priest recorded in the baptism record 'postea Lena' which translated mean 'hereafter Lena'." So, it appears the priest gave her the name, not just a family tradition. ~Edie Eader

The family started calling her Lena, so it stuck and that is what is on the tomb stone, at her request. (Source)
