Claire 'Sis Howard ' Brenna

It is with great sadness that we the family announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and sister Claire “Sis Howard” Brenna on October 22, 2013 at the New Waterford Consolidated Hospital. Born in New Waterford on April 2, 1948 she was the daughter of the late Thomas and Irene (Dieltgens) McKenzie. Sis and her buddy Betty Gillis loved to travel together. Sis was an avid reader and enjoyed sitting down and watching her favorite T.V. shows Criminal Minds and Law & Order with her cherished grandson Christian. She had loved going to Marc’s hockey games, and her Sunday drives with her grandson Trevor, especially when they would stop at Lick a Chick for a picnic. She had a special love for her family. She is survived by her soul mate Jerry “Jookie” Brenna; daughters Wendy (Mike) Howard, New Waterford, Mary Dawn (Russell) Howard, Sydney; a son and daughter of the heart Marc (Carissa) Nicholson, New Waterford and Tamara (Chris) Irwin, Edmonton; sister Joyce Howard, Port Hawkesbury; brothers Raymond (Christine) MacKenzie, Toronto, Danny McKenzie, New Waterford; and grandchildren Trevor and Christian, who will miss her dearly. Besides her parents she was predeceased by son Trevor George Howard, brother Ralph and sister Paula. Cremation has taken place. There will be a chapel service on Monday, October 28th at 2p.m. in McLellan Brothers Funeral Home Chapel, New Waterford with Deacon Leo Penny officiating.
