Joan ‘Joanie’ Katrina Brewer


Joan "Joanie” Katrina Brewer, 61, went home to be with the Lord suddenly on Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017.

She was born Oct. 4, 1955. A longtime nurse and resident of Cleveland, she enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandbabies. To love and care always came natural to her. She showed us, by example, what it means to be selfless. She will be missed dearly by all that knew her.

She was preceded in death by father, James Gay, "Pawpaw”; and brother, Jerry Gay.

She is survived by her mother, Vivian Townsend; husband of 44 years, Joe Brewer; children: Justin Brewer (Peyton), Kristie Brewer (Edward) and Josh Brewer; sisters: Patti "Dister" Brand (Jeff), laine Talbot (Bobby) and Tammy Cashen; brother, Richard Gay; grandchildren: Sierra and Gunner Stewart, Kylee Holland and Landon Brewer; several nieces and nephews; and extended family and friends.

The family will receive friends Monday, Oct. 2, 2017, from 5 to 8 p.m. with service to follow at Companion Funeral home, located at 2419 Georgetown Road.

You are invited to share a personal memory of her or your condolences with her family at her online memorial located at www.companionfunerals .com.
