In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Charles Ewald; siblings, Ellen Jennings, Owen Brennan, Tommy Brennan, Eddie Brennan, Cecilia Brennan, Agnes Brennan and Jerry Brennan.

“Do you want to have a cup of tea?” are words we’ve heard from our mom all of our life and we wish we could have one more with her. She was a mother of four who picked up another one, to raise five kids the best she could while working difficult jobs. She instilled a love of life, music and so many other interests in her family. To know her well was to love her and if you knew her life story, she’d inspire you. She touched so many with her fun stories and perspectives that made us laugh and enjoy life. She really thought about what you would enjoy and appreciate. We all loved her!
