  1. Aunt Mary loved her family. For many years hosting as many Brenner’s as possible at her and Scott’s home. Always took the time and effort to make it special. Those memories are warm and joyful and wont soon be forgotten.
    Serving her community and active in politics, she was a hard working, dedicated grassroots activist. she truly cared about her community, her state and her country. May your eternal rest bring you comfort and peace.

  2. Mary was a great classmate and fellow Mt. Wolfer. We went thru 1st grade to 12th grade together She was someone that I always looked up to. Although I haven’t seen Mary in years I still consider her one of my best friends. Every time a fellow Mt. Wolfer or classmate passes, a piece of my heart is broken. My condolences to John, Bob, Sally & the entire Brenner family. She will be missed!
    RIP Mary Brenner

  3. Mary Brenner remembered.
    I joined York Toastmasters in 1980. At the time Mary was soon to be retired as our chapter President, the first female to hold that office and a definite minority in our club.
    Mary was welcoming and helpful to me and other club members then and throughout the years I participated and benefited from Toastmasters.
    Quick to laugh at appropriate times, but just as quick to notice and support club members that struggled in the program.
    Mary had success in Toastmasters besides her top administration role and guidance, as she won several area and district Toastmasters contests and brought pride to York Toastmasters.
    Also, everyone who knew Mary can recall with warmth the pride she exuded as a mother.
    RIP, Mary
