Anna Brennan


1921 - 2015 Obituary Condolences
Our loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Anna Margaret Toennies Brennan passed away on March 14, 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
She was born March 22, 1921 in Damiansville, Illinois to Bernard and Mary T. Kuper Toennies. She married Edward J. Brennan on January 23, 1943 in St. Louis, Missouri. While Edward served in the U. S. Air Force, Margaret faithfully moved to the many different bases they were transferred to. They moved to their last stop, Salt Lake City in 1965. He thought of her as saintly.
Margaret was the heart of her family and was always present for her children. She was a faithful homemaker who enjoyed baking, cooking, sewing, and gardening. She loved to listen to the opera. She was prayerful and daily celebrated the Eucharist. She was a member of the Saint Ambrose parish for 50 years. She truly had a sweetness of heart and was a ray of hope and sunshine in our lives.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 72 years, Edward Brennan; children, Edward (Eileen) Brennan of Dallas, Texas, Carolyn (Mark) Saucier of Jefferson City, Missouri; Mary Brennan (Barbara Lockhart) of Greenfield, Mass., James (Sara) Brennan of East Longmeadow, Mass., and Joe (Nancy) Brennan of Bend, Oregon; grandchildren, David (Amy), Nathan (Ali), Aaron, Rebecca, and Micah Saucier, Rachel (Justin) Saucier Perrone, Daniel (Hannah), Alex, and Christopher Brennan, Matthew and Caroline Brennan; and seven great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by four brothers and four sisters.
The family would like to thank Saint Joseph Villa for the care they gave to Margaret.
A funeral mass will be celebrated Thursday, March 19, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. at Saint Ambrose Catholic Church, 1975 South 2300 East. A vigil service will be held Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. at Neil O'Donnell and Sons Mortuary, 372 East 100 South, where friends may call from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Committal, Mt. Calvary Catholic Cemetery, 4th Avenue and T Street.

Margaret lived her life with the awareness of this prayer, "Be still and know that I am God."
