Mary Aileen (Stevens) Brenner

March 7, 1960 ~ December 31, 2021 (age 61)

Obituary

Age 61, of Jackson, passed away with dignity and under her terms at Henry Ford Allegiance Health on Friday, December 31, 2021.  She fought a valiant battle with Covid pneumonia after having won her battle against lung cancer.  Mary was born in Jackson in 1960, the daughter of Donald and Ruth (Long) Stevens.

Mary is survived by her daughter, Jessica (Marty) Holbrook of Jackson; five grandchildren, Taylor (Kyle) Kemler, Destiny Lewis (Andrew Wood), Austin Lewis, Joshua Lewis and Trenton Lewis; five beloved great-grandchildren, McKenna, Maleenah, Aiden, Madilynn and Elouise; her best friend and companion of many years, Barry Garner; spoiled and adored canines, Maggie Mae and Isella; extended family members and many dear friends. 

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Timothy Brenner in 2005; sister, Diane Murphy and step-mom, Julia Stevens.

Mary was a graduate of Michigan Center High School.  She worked in retail and some shop jobs but truly enjoyed and took great pride in owning and operating her home and business cleaning company, Quality Cleaning Services. 

Mary was a person that loved all animals and all people; and truly enjoyed caring for and loving her family above all else.  Her belief and trust in her Lord was a key element in her life.  When she entered a room, it lit up with her presence; she was a great jokester.  Mary was a take charge woman (in a good way), she was full of resources such that if you had a question about most anything, she generally had a good answer for you.  She and her family enjoyed travelling, camping and going to the beach.  Her hobbies included home decorating, sewing, yard work and making wedding bouquets for family and friends.  Mary was meticulous about doing her best in whatever task she was doing.  She certainly will be missed by her beloved family and many friends.

A service to honor Mary’s life will be held at Arthur-Day Funeral Home in Michigan Center on Sunday, January 16, 2022 at 1:00 pm with Reverend Rich Ratts officiating.  Visitation will begin at noon and a luncheon reception at the Fraternal Order of Eagles #612 will follow the services.
