We Remember Those We Have Lost
OCEAN CITY -- On Thursday, March 1, 2012, Verna Isabelle Disney Brenner, age 94, was taken to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Born in Harborton, Va., she is preceded in Heaven by her mother and father, Herbert and Florence Disney and her husband, John Brenner.
She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She leaves behind a son, John H. Brenner and his wife, Leslye, of Salisbury; a daughter, Nancy B. Fortney, of Ocean City; two grandchildren, Dale C. Fortney of California and Gretchen L. York and her husband Joseph of Pennsylvania; and five great grandchildren, Brittany R. Fortney of Texas, Jenna P., Caroline E., and Cole J. York of Pennsylvania and Ashton Cope of Salisbury. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
Verna was employed as a bookkeeper of Delmarva Power for 32 years and was a member of Allen Memorial Baptist Church where she worked with children for many years. Later she transferred church membership to Fenwick Island Baptist Church where she attended until her health failed. She loved both churches and found great peace in attending them.
In our lifetime, we are on a journey and only passing through this land for a little while. The destination is heaven for all who believe and love out Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Verna Isabelle Disney Brenner did both.
A celebration of her life will be held on Monday, March 5, 2012 at 2 p.m. at the Burbage Funeral Home in Berlin. Friends may call one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow at Perryhawkin Christian Church Cemetery in Princess Anne.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Fenwick Island Baptist Church, 36806 Lighthouse Rd., Selbyville, Del. 19975 or to Coastal Hospice at the late, PO Box 1733, Salisbury, Md. 21804.
