Her family has been truly blessed by the wonderful care provided by her Caregivers, Pennie, Julie, and Debbie and they will always remain a part of our family.
Mrs. Brett loved her family and adored her grandchildren. She was very strong and always encouraged the children to never settle for average, but to strive for the best they can be.

She was always so proud to say that she was born & raised in Romeo and so blessed to live the end of her life in her favorite place “on the hill”.
