Donna M. Stanley Bremer, age 71, of Fayetteville, TN, passed away into the arms of her Savior Sunday morning, May 11, 2014.
Born 3 of Jan. 1943 in Columbia, Missouri to Matilda (Mae) and Eulis A.(Alvy) Crane.
Mrs. Bremer was a proud ”Kewpie”, having graduated from Hickman High School at that location and served on reunion committees for many years until 2001 when, at her 40th class reunion she was reacquainted with her high school sweetheart, Rev. George W. Bremer, and that former romance was rekindled resulting in their marriage on Oct. 7, 2006. Donna and her husband joined the membership of Charity Baptist Church shortly after she gave her life over to Jesus and was baptized in Lynchburg, TN. Mrs. Bremer was as devoted to her new church family as she was to her husband and loved everyone completely and unconditionally.
Mrs. Bremer served 37 years in the banking business until her retirement and then continued working in other pursuits for a short time.
Donna was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers and one sister.
She is survived by her son Kevin C. Stanley (Kim) of St. Louis, Missouri, sister, Sue Pruessner of Arizona, step-children Paul Bremer of St. Joseph, MO, Jacqueline Burton (Eddie) of Lynchburg, James R. and Jason R. (Stephanie) of Woodville, AL, Rachel Thrasher (Brandon) of Dutton, AL and the grandchildren she was so devoted to, Nick Stanley, Alexandria Stanley, Jaxson and Carson Bremer, McKenzie, Mason and Murphy Thrasher, Victoria, Olivia and Samantha Bremer, Lucas and Lane Bremer, and Jocelyn, Jacey, Juley and Jessica Burton.
Mrs. Bremer and her husband shared in accepting all and their own and loved them as their own.
Mrs. Bremer is also survived by numerous and devoted friends, cousins, nieces, nephews, brother and sister-in-laws, and of course, her church family. Of special note is her very special and lifelong friend Pamela Seibert (Frank) of Columbia, MO and her precious mother-in-law Jane R. Jeffries of Columbia, MO.
The family will receive friends Tuesday, May 13, 2014 from 5-8 PM at Lynchburg Funeral Home.
Services will be held Wednesday May 14, 2014 at 2 PM at the Lynchburg Funeral Home Chapel with Bro. Danny Hale officiating.
