EVA MARY BREWSTER Passed peacefully on October 28, 2022 (Port Orange).

Eva was born to Earl and Luella Tyler on August 5, 1925, in Manchester, CT.   She grew up on a dairy farm during the depression, in historical Lebanon, CT graduating from Lyman Memorial high school.  Eva from the age of 3-years old knew that Jesus was with her then and throughout her 97-years. She never doubted this to the very end. Eva and her late husband Charles E Brewster were married for 57 years. In their marriage they made it a point to stay in contact with all their family members through the years, plus wherever they lived in Connecticut, California, Missouri or Florida, they always made new friends while keeping in touch with old friends. They traveled the world together and could carry on conversations with people wherever they were. Eva continued this tradition after Charles passed in 2003. Eva was a wonderful singer and loved being in choirs wherever she lived. She also sang with the Sweet Adeline’s.  She started singing solos and duets at a very young age at the Lebanon, CT Baptist Church and sang in church choirs everywhere she lived. Most recently at the Port Orange United Church of Christ where she had many, many friends.  She was a Greeter at the Port Orange YMCA. She loved watching Lawrence Welk. Eva never met a person she visibly did not like. She also found it very difficult to speak ill of anyone. Her work life included everything from being an “Avon Lady” to being a top Executive Secretary at McDonnell Douglas Aircraft now Boeing. She was an active California licensed Realtor and loved helping people. Eva was always very aware of all the people around her and strived to be independent and not a burden to others. She was very humble and felt that she should be doing something to help others rather than asking help for herself. Even when severe osteoporosis took control of her body and forced her to be stooped over when standing, she always wanted to be as independent as possible. She loved going on cruises with her family and friends. She loved birthday parties, picnics and just driving around to see what was new or happening. Eva’s faith in living a Christian Life was unshakable. Her spiritual awareness that this life was not the end and that the best was waiting for her never wavered. Even in her last hours she was still singing “Jesus Loves Me”. Predeceased by her husband Charles, brother Frank Tyler, and sister Alice Ward. She is survived by her children – Robert Brewster (Ruth), Stewart Brewster (Donna), and Joyce Scarlatelli (Nick); grandchildren Kimberly (Mike), Susie, Forrest, Charles (Apryl), Stephen, Zane (JulieAnn), and Troy; great-grandsons  Blake, Haydn and Emerson. A celebration of life will take place in the Spring of 2023 at the New Lebanon Cemetery Lebanon, CT. An online memorial can be viewed at https://baldwincremation.com Memorial donations may be made to the Port Orange United Church of Christ, 651 Taylor Road, Port Orange, FL 32127.

    Mom has been my best friend for my entire 64 years. She was my sounding board for new, sometimes crazy, ideas and my biggest fan for just being me – her little girl. During our visits and phone calls she was always interested in what we were doing and happy to hear about our everyday adventures. She loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren deeply. She was happiest when we were all together.
    Mom had a positive view of life and looked forward to what the next day would bring. She supported my Dad’s desire for picking up and moving cross country (4 times) yet also maintained her independence. After Dad passed in 2003, Mom continued to live life with a smile although it was sometimes difficult due to her severe osteoporosis but she refused to let it stop her. She loved to travel and take cruises. She was a lot of fun to be with and turned into a teenager with her friends. Her smile and laugh were always warm and brighten everyone’s day around her. I will miss her greatly. Love you Mom.

    Just a few days short of 76 years when I was born, my Mom has always been a part of my life. Mom and I could talk about anything and when I expressed my opinions too strongly about a subject or someone, she had a way of looking at me or saying a few words that tempered my feelings. She was very well organized and her memory was very accurate through the years for details. I learned to not question something she remebered. My brother, sister and myself could always count on her to dentify someone in an old picture or to recall some event that happened through our lives or her life before we were born. Most remarkable was the ability of both my Mom & Dad as a couple to make friends wherever they lived. This continued after my Dad passed. It was a steady stream of new faces, personalities and backgrounds that also became friends of our families as we got to know them better, too. Above all else, Mom was deeply positive about life and the experiences it brought. She never waivered on thinking "good" about people and if something happened that was upsetting to her, she had the ability to forget it so that the negative feelings never lingered for long. This is a trait I will remember the most. Her ability to forgive and to forget while remaining positive and loving. That was my Mom and I will miss her greatly.
