In Memory of Her: Mary Brewster

Mary was a supportive member of WATER from our beginning in April 1983 until her last day on April 6, 2018, 35 years! Because of her convent background and life experience, Mary understood our mission: to bring the values of feminist theology, ethics, and ritual into conversation with everyday life. She shared these in her family life, her nursing career, her church participation, and SAS her women-church community.

In Mary’s last years, she was part of WATER’s meditation group. She was always a welcome presence in the office. We remember when she surprised everyone and came to meditation even after her knee surgery. We will miss her smile, her kindness, her compassion, and her colleagueship in the struggles for justice. Mary Brewster, Presente!
