We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Mourning Glory Funeral Services
BREMNER, Alexandra Marie (Dancing Queen)
July 21, 2003 – September 7, 2021
Alex passed away peacefully and suddenly in her favourite spot, her bed, on September 7. Alex was a precious daughter that truly was the beat of our hearts. She was the person that could walk into the room and instantly fill it with love and laughter. Alex had a smile like no other that radiated love through everyone she met. She looked at the bright side of everything and would often tell her friends “You are your worst judger.”
We were so lucky and blessed to have Alexandra as a part of our family for a short 18 years. The hard work and dedication Alex put into everything was unbelievable and we were so proud of the woman she blossomed into. Whether it was at Camp Kadesh as a counsellor, Forest Grove Youth Group on the service team or her many jobs she managed to juggle such as Moxie’s, Family Pizza, Citizen Café or Ryde. She always showed up with a positive outlook and gave everything 100%. Alex brought light and sunshine everywhere and to anyone she met.
Alexandra attended Bishop Pocock School up until grade 3, St. Phillip until grade 8, and Holy Cross High School where she just graduated this past school year. In high school, Alex found her passion for volleyball and became a health advocate for Ryde and Habiit Athletics, with daily workouts sometimes occurring two or three times a day. She not only loved the classes, but she was able to enjoy them dancing around with her friends. Alex was in her second week of nursing school at Sask Polytech and was on her way to becoming a great nurse. She dreamed of working in the E.R. at St. Paul’s Hospital and was on her way to doing so. Alex followed every dream and passion she had.
Alex thrived on wild adventures and would bring her sissy and friends along. Her wittiness and sarcasm is what most noticed first, but it was her loyal, faithful, kind, compassionate and quirky personality that impacted every individual she met. She had the most authentic soul in every situation and she never judged.
Alexandra will be forever missed by her parents Tisha (Jason Merritt) and Jason Bremner, her sissy/best friend Madison, Noah Merritt, grandparents Doug and Linda Bremner, Gloria Jensen, Carmen and Gladys Merritt, Great Grandma Lacroix and many aunts, uncles, cousins and so many friends.
