Our Mother, Shirley Brem, passed away peacefully on January 12, 2018 at Brandel Manor in Turlock surrounded by her family. She was born in Salinas to Charles Phillips and Delmira Monteiro. In 1953, she married Richard Brem and they were married for over 62 year until he passed away in September 2017.
Mom is survived by three children, Mike (Tina), Nancy (Nick) and Jim (Pam). She has five grandchildren, Jason, Jeff, Ryan, Kyle and Tyson. She also had five great grandchildren, Cali, Jack, Layne, Everett and Clark. She is also survived by her sister, Patricia Bettencourt.
Mom was the most dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother a person could have. She took great care of Dad until the end and her family was her biggest priority. Mom was a great cook and loved to bake. We will miss her Christmas cakes and cookies. She also loved to sew and many have one of her quilts.
In keeping with Mom’s wishes, there were no services. We suspect she is already tending to Dad who has been waiting impatiently for her.
August 11, 1934 – January 12, 2018.
