Obituary

BREWER - Christine M. Sawyer, 93, died on March 14th, 2020, surrounded by her family and dedicated caregivers. She was born on October 1, 1926 in Ebbw Vale, Gwent, South Wales, Great Britain, the daughter of William and Hannah (Bevan) Jones.

Chris came from a large family of four sisters, and four brothers. She met and fell in love with a young GI, Burton A. Sawyer, who was stationed in Wales during the Second World War. They married in July of 1945 at Bethesda Chapel in Beaufort, South Wales. Chris followed Burt to the United States when he returned in 1946. They were married for 56 years until Burt's death in May of 2001.

Chris was actively involved in the lives of her sons, David and Marc, volunteering often as room mother during their elementary years, and later as chaperone during many Brewer High School band trips. She enjoyed this involvement, and it continued when her grandchildren entered school. Chris was a long time congregant of the First United Methodist Church of Brewer.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her in-laws, Percy and Lillian Sawyer; as well as three of her sisters; and her four brothers, one of whom perished as a POW in the Pacific during the war.

Surviving are her sons, David B. Sawyer and his wife, Jane, of Brewer, and Marc A. Sawyer and his wife Mary, of Pepperell, Massachusetts; her sister, Irene Wright, of Cwmbran, South Wales, Great Britain; four grandchildren, Matthew Sawyer of Bangor, Christi Simmons and husband, Ben, of Townsend, Massachusetts, Patrick Sawyer and his wife, Jenn of Bangor; and Meagan Sawyer of Old Town. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews in South Wales; although separated by distance, she held all of them closely in her heart.

The family would like to express their sincerest thanks to Dr. Gary Ross and caring staff of Brewer Health Center, and the dedicated caregivers of New England Home Health Care, Woodlands Senior Living, Beacon Hospice, and St. Joseph’s Hospital, who made her last years and months as comfortable as possible. At her request, a graveside service will be held at a date to be announced. As Chris was an avid reader, friends are encouraged to make gifts in her memory to the Brewer Public Library, 100 South Main Street, Brewer ME, 04412.
