BRENNAN Nora July 8, 1935 – June 22, 2019 “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Matthew 25:23 It is with great sadness, yet a sense of comfort, that we announce the passing of our mom, Nora Brennan. Surrounded by her loving family, Mom peacefully passed away at the Lions Manor Nursing Home, Placentia, on June 22, 2019. Predeceased by her husband, John (Jack), daughter Marilyn, parents, Isabelle and Patrick Foley and stepfather Sylvester Murphy, brother Harold Murphy, as well as sisters and brothers-in-law. Left with special memories are her children, Pat, Maxine (Nody), Jackie (Kenneth Nash), Randal (Bernadine), Denise (Allan English), Bernadine (Glen Kehoe), Norbert (Michelle). Also left with cherished memories are her brothers and sisters, Patrick Foley (Susan), Cyril Murphy, Maryanne (Harold McGrath), Mercedes (Don Ross) and sister-in-law, Sadie (Gerald Hillier). Mom's 12 grandchildren, 2 step grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and 3 step great-grandchildren, have special memories of their Nanny; she was very proud of each grandchild. Mom also leaves many nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and many wonderful neighbors, who will sadly miss her, especially her long time friend, Joan Tobin. Equally saddened by her loss are many residents at the Lions Manor, particularly her roommate and friend, Mrs. Hanrahan and her daughter, Rosalind, and her former college friend, Mrs. Griffiths. We are very thankful to our brother, Pat, for the care and support that he provided to Mom, thus ensuring that she remained in her own home until she required a higher level of nursing care. A sincere thank you is extended to the staff and residents at the Lions Manor for the compassionate care and support that you provided to Mom during her time with you. Over the last number of days, the support and kindness that you provided to Mom and her family was truly appreciated. We will forever remember your thoughtfulness.
