Rose Mary Brenner

February 11, 1921 ~ July 26, 2014

Rose Mary Brenner passed away at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital in Cranbrook on Saturday, July 26, 2014 at the age of 93 years. She was born on February 11, 1921 in Spokane, Washington to John and Teresa Lorenzo.

Rose Mary’s whole focus in life was her family and friends. She loved to cook for everybody and took great joy in running Brenner’s Café in Yahk for many years. She prided herself with her homemade soups, pies and everything made from scratch. Not only did she run the café, but she decorated many wedding and birthday cakes for people over the years. Halloween also saw her giving away her homemade candy to the local kids. Like many of the women of her time, she loved to knit and sew too. Mom and Dad loved to dance the old time waltz and enjoyed many good times dancing.

Rose Mary was predeceased by her husband, Adolf in 1998, her parents and one brother, Peter.

Rose Mary leaves to mourn her passing her three children; John (May) Brenner, Ron (Sandy) Brenner and Sheila Way as well as her seven grandchildren; Sarah, Charlotte, Andrea, Matthew, Jessica Brenner and Megan and Greg Way. Also left behind are six great-grandchildren; Thor, Ella, Grey, Porter, Tate and Finn.

At Rose Mary’s request, there will be no funeral service at this time.
