Virginia Rae Brewer

1936 - 2024

Virginia Rae Brewer, born in Livingston, Mont., peacefully passed surrounded by her loved ones. Throughout her life, which took her to various places, she found her steadfast anchor in Thermopolis, where she resided intermittently since 1957.

Virginia's journey was marked by love and companionship. She was married to Torlef Redland and later to Albert Blais, and though life brought its changes, she remained steadfast in her affection. She leaves behind cherished memories and a legacy of love.

Her devoted children survive her, Vickie Gossens (Jim) of Rapid City, Mark Redland (Deba) of Yuma, Ariz., Rick Redland (Tammy) of Thermopolis, and Craig Redland (Michele) of Thermopolis.

Virginia was preceded in death by her beloved husbands, Torlef Redland and Albert Blais; brothers, James and Roger Brewer; and her sister, Patty Graham.

Virginia epitomized a doting grandmother, her love extending unconditionally to her eight grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. She cherished every moment spent with family and friends, often engaging them in spirited card games where her skill and humor were unforgettable.
