Maryann Brenkus

She was born in Fort Wayne, a daughter of the late Herbert and Anna (Lweue) Reiling. She was a member of St. John Bosco Catholic Church in Churubusco, and loved crocheting, baking, and canning.

Maryann was united in marriage to Jule Jeanmougin, who preceded her in death. She was later married to Al Brenkus who also preceded her in death. 

Her survivors include her daughter, Joan Ostermeier of LaOtto; a sister, Dorothy Redwinski of Fort Wayne; three grandchildren, Marie (Tristan) Waitt of Austin, Texas, Marcie Ostermeier of Avilla, and Brian (Sherri) Ostermeier of Albion.

Honoring Maryann’s wishes, there will be no calling hours or services. Disposition of the ashes will take place at a later date.
