Marjorie Helen Brewer, 84 years of age, passed away Sunday, Sept 3, 2017 at Melissa Memorial Hospital in Holyoke.

Marj was born Feb. 18, 1933 in Haxtun CO, to John and Helen (Nauman) Evans.

She graduated from Haxtun High School in 1950 and moved to Holyoke, where she met the one true love of her lifetime, Gerald (Bud), while she was working at the Phillips County Extension Office. They were married on June 3, 1961 in the Haxtun Methodist Church. They completed their family when they adopted their daughters, DeeAnn, in 1967 and Sherri in 1969.

Marj spent most of her life utilizing her legendary organizational skills to serve others. She was Mother Advisor to the Rainbow Girls, Worthy Matron for Eastern Star, past president and 66 year member of PEO, while serving on various boards and committees for her church and community. Marj and Bud owned and operated Smythe’s Dept Store for many years. She was a deputy for County Treasurer Lois Lipker and was one of the last Phillips County Registrars.

While Marj enjoyed singing in the church choir, playing the piano, doing cross stitch and knitting, and collecting bells and teapots, it was her 5 grandchildren that filled her heart the most.

She is survived by her devoted husband of 56 years, Bud of Holyoke; daughter, DeeAnn Brewer and husband Steve Peist of Anthem, AZ; daughter, Sherri Brewer and husband Kerry Blomme of Minden, NE; grandchildren, Dalton and Cole Blomme, and Emerald, Magnolia, and Dashiell Peist; sisters Mary Louise and Lorraine of Sterling; brother Darrell of Palisade, NE; as well as beloved nieces and nephews, treasured neighbors, and irreplaceable friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Etta Marie Dix and brothers, Harold and Robert.

Services will be Friday, Sept. 8 at 10 a.m. at the United Methodist Church in Holyoke with the Rev. Al Strauss officiating.

Memorials are suggested to the United Methodist Church, PEO Scholarship Fund, or the Arthritis Foundation.

Baucke Funeral Home in Holyoke is in charge of arrangements.
