Sandra T. Brewer, 81, of Somerville, Massachusetts entered into rest surrounded by her loving family on the evening of February 8 in Winchester, Massachusetts.
Born in Bay City, Michigan on February 10, 1938, she was the daughter of Glenn E. and Alice (Chimner) Taylor. She grew up in Bay City and was a 1957 graduate of T.L. Handy High School. After graduation, she worked as a bookkeeper at Sears in Bay City and at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas.
For forty-nine years, Sandra was a devoted wife to Charles F. Brewer Jr. whom she married in 1963 after meeting him at Fort Bliss. She and Charles lived in various US states and Germany during his military service and, after his retirement, settled in Danvers, Massachusetts, where she was a homemaker and avid bowler in the Alley Cats bowling league.
After twenty-four years in Danvers, Sandra moved to Aiken, South Carolina in 1995. She was a life-long member of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority with more than sixty years of service. She was also a member of the Trinity United Methodist Church and active in Town & Country, Newcomers, WOW, Red Hats, and the Military Officers Association of America.
Until her move to Somerville in 2019, she split her time between Aiken and the family’s cottage on Pemaquid Lake in Damariscotta, Maine, a place she loved dearly.
She is predeceased by her husband, Charles, and her parents.
Sandra leaves her son, C. Bruce Brewer, his wife Kathleen, and her grandson, Charles John (CJ) Brewer, all of Somerville; her daughter, Katharine Brewer of San Francisco, California; her brother Don Taylor and his wife Sharon of Adrian, Michigan; and many loving nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be held at 11:00am, on Saturday, July 17th, at the Hillside Cemetery in Damariscotta. In lieu of flowers, donations in Sandra’s name may be made to: Miles Memorial Hospital League, PO Box 503, Damariscotta ME 04543 or Helping Hands, P.O. Box 50, Aiken, SC 29802.
Arrangements are under the direction and care of the Strong-Hancock Funeral Home, 612 Main Street, Damariscotta, ME 04543.
