WEBSTER – On Sunday, March 19, 2023, Barbara (Thompson) Bremer was released from her earthly constraints to rocket towards heaven, and fly through the pearly gates using her E-Z Pass. Upon arrival, we imagine she straightened a few things out, to reflect her preferences, and had some ice cream. She leaves behind her daughter, Anne-Elizabeth Bremer and her partner Mickey Yvanauskas; and her son, Paul Bremer and his wife Geraldine Brophy. These two offspring provided her with much love, support, and frustration over the years. She also leaves her grandchildren, Courtney Bremer of Webster, and Zachary Bremer and his partner Nicole Kocijan of Peoria, Arizona; and her step-grandson, Sean O'Dwyer of Las Vegas, Nevada. She was, by all accounts, including hers, the best grandmother on the planet. She also leaves her sister- and brother-in-law, Brenda and Jim Stone of North Yarmouth, Maine; and many beloved nieces and nephews, also of Maine. And a special mention of an angel here on earth, Gail Milla, her dear friend and protector.
She worked for many decades as a nuclear medical technician at area hospitals too numerous to mention. She was a Worcester County resident for 59 years and a woman of strong opinions, and often felt no hesitation about sharing them with you. She was a 40+ year friend of Bill W, and gave a hand to others with wit, humor and compassion. In her later years, she seemed to become an amateur stunt woman exemplified by her several auto incidents and frequent falls.
She spent the last of her "golden years "at Christopher Heights Home in Webster. While there, she was treated with much care and compassion. She is at peace now relieved of all earthly shortcomings. As she often said, "...it is what it is."
Memorial calling hours are Wednesday, May 31, 2023, from 5-7 p.m. at Paradis-Givner Funeral Home, 357 Main St., Oxford. Remembrances by family and friends will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, at the conclusion of calling hours.
