Aline Eucledia Brewen, 86, passed away peacefully at the University Hospital in Columbia, Mo. on January 7, 2014.
She was born January 29, 1927 in Elvins, Mo. to Marion Guy Robinson and Annie Conrad Robinson. She married Joseph Brady Brewen on July 3, 1942 and was widowed on May 3, 1963 with five children to raise. With the help of God, she said, she was able to support and raise her kids and make sure they all received a college education. She was the center of her family and absolutely believed in her children.
IN 1965, Aline moved to Columbia from Marble Hill where she was a stay-at-home mom and worked 27 years in Food Service at the University of Missouri during spring and fall semesters and each summer in Lander, Wyo. as a cook for the MU Geology Field School.
Aline is known for all the clothes sewn for her daughters, the many quilts she made over a lifetime, and for the all the meals she prepared. Her children and grandchildren have treasured memories of trips they have taken with her and quality time shared.
Aline was preceeded in death by her husband J.B. Brewen; brother Ira Robinson; and sisters Melvi Shelton, Alma Leon, Eunice Criteser, Naomi Pogue, Lenora Arnold, and Estil Arnold.
She is survived by her brother Leroy Robinson, Park Hills, Mo.; sons Rodger Brewen (Shirley), Boonville, Mo. and Michael Brewen, Berwyn, Pa.; and daughters Barbara Richerson (Jim PID 1999), Alpine, Texas; Teresa Halbersma (Marion), Ozark, Mo., and Rhonda Sue Jolley (John), Cheyenne, Wyo.
She is also survived by her grandchildren Tara Richerson, Laura Patridge (Adam), Milan Jolley, Kristina Boggs (Dustin), Tanya Brewen, and Brennan Halbersma; great grandchildren Brady and Brett Boggs and David and Allison Patridge; and nieces, nephews, and many friends and neighbors.
