Patsy Deloris Brewer
Patsy left us early Monday morning and our hearts are heavy. The daughter of the
late Frank and Doris Blackburn, sister of Brenda Thomas and the late William
Thomas. She grew up in Baltimore, Maryland where she went to Kenwood High
School and sat next to a young fellow named Donald Brewer with whom she fell in
love. After graduation, they were married in September of 1965 and went on to
spend the next 54 years together. Patsy spent a brief career as a beautician, but
shortly after marriage, Donald was drafted into the Army and they spent
several years moving around the country. She leaves behind her children: her
daughter Shonda and her husband Curt, and son Michael and his wife Shelby. She
was also the proud grandmother of 6: Gehrig, Gabriella, Grant, Garrison, Delaney,
and Cooper. She adored her family, many of whom were at her side when she
passed. The love and celebration of her life that began in that room was truly
breathtaking. The entire family will live better lives for having her in theirs. She also
leaves many nieces and nephews that would tell her every chance they got she
was their absolute favorite.
She spent her whole life giving, be it love, money, hugs or laughs she did it all.
Many say “you couldn't say a bad word about ...,” but in Patsy's case, no one alive
had anything but kind words. She touched thousands; she helped even more. She
did it every day with a laugh no one will ever forget, but all will miss.
Most important were those around her. She spent her whole life
dedicated to family. Her “Brewer Breakfasts” were meals of legend. Her
grandchildren's friends would make the Brewer Breakfasts their first
stop upon returning to Medfield. Most would admit it was as much for
her company as it was for her cooking.
She was, and always will be, this family's matriarch. The purveyor of
Thanksgiving dinner, Christmas dinner, and any other dinner that
involved the family. No one missed her mashed potatoes, no matter
how far they had to drive (or fly).
She also loved decorating for every holiday, from time to time changing the
furniture around and confusing her husband to match the season. Every
summer, she had the biggest garden and flowers. Winters were filled doing
puzzles. This all while following any of her family who had a sporting event,
play, or school function.
Heaven is a far better place today than it was on Sunday. And even
though we may feel "poorer" for her leaving us, we will strive to keep
her spirit, her love, and her memory alive as we move forward through
this heartbreaking time of our lives.
We will always love you Meam, we will miss you forever but we will
never ever forget you.
A Celebration of Life and Luncheon will be held on Saturday, Nov. 2nd from 1pm to 4pm at the Renaissance Patriot Place Hotel, 28 Patriot Place, Foxborough.
