It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Brenna on January 08, 2018 at 17 years of age surrounded by her family.  Precious daughter of Christine and Martin. Loving sister of Ryan and Rowan.   Beloved granddaughter of David and Margaret Murray and Terry and Mairead Jones. Treasured niece of James and Carmen Murray, Scott and Robyn Murray and Terri Jones-Hebblewhite and Nigel Hebblewhite. Adored cousin of Sophie and Eibhlin Murray, baby Murray (on the way), and “Uncle” Rob and  “Aunt” Sheryl Elliott. She had many cousins who treasured her company, the Holder/Jones family, the McHallams, the Ginnelly/Flannagan family in Ireland, and the Phillips/Cope family in England, and many others. She will be deeply missed by her Mummoo Melissa, Marty, sisters Priscilla and Cora, Landon, best friend and soulmate Jordan Chortos, and best girlfriend, Elyse Brunett.  She was cherished by those she met while on treatment, the doctors and nurses at London Children’s Hospital, those we met at Ronald McDonald house, Windsor’s Satellite clinic, and the friends she made at Camp Ooch, all enjoyed and shared her spirit and bravery in facing this demon Cancer.

Brenna was a spitfire, full of spunk, our little Sas-a frass. She faced life with fierce determination with everything and everyone she encountered. She loved her family passionately and was devoted to her closest friends. She was excited about life, and was unwavering in her enthusiasm for her art, and her desire to be an Animator.

She loved her time with family, and the times we spent on vacation together. Camping up north with our cousins, Aunts, and Uncles was one of her favorite times, and was looked forward to every year. Family dinners at Christmas, and New Years were cherished times as well. She was brave, she had unwavering courage, and she was determined to always be kind. We will always cherish the light she brought to our lives, because she shined bright, and we all felt her spirit and love radiating from within. We are comforted in knowing she is in God’s hands, watching over us, our angel in heaven.

Visiting on Friday from 3-5 and 7-9 pm.  Funeral service on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at Families First, 585 Sandwich Street South, Amherstburg 519-969-5841.
