ROCKLAND - Brenda Lee Ott, 77, passed peacefully in the company of her daughter and son-in-law on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 at Penobscot Bay Medical Center after fighting IPF for a year.

Born in Rockland, December 6, 1942 she was the daughter of Theodore and Maudie Beaton Lewis. Brenda was a loving daughter, sister, mother, niece, aunt, grandmother and great-Grandmother (Gigi). She lived her entire life in the state of Maine, except for several winters spent in North Carolina.

She loved the ocean. She had not a care in the world when she was down at Crockett’s Beach and she loved to go there in the summer. She loved to collect shells and sea glass to make wreaths and jewelry that she shared with family and friends. Brenda also loved to plant and raise herbs. In the winter she planned her garden for the following season, so excited for spring to arrive. Many people will remember Brenda for was her peanut butter and chocolate fudge. She made it by the pounds and shared it with everyone who needed a pick me up. At Christmas time, Brenda was known to have made thirty pounds of her famous fudge for friends and family alike.

Brenda was a caretaker at heart. She spent years caring for sick and housebound relatives and friends. Tirelessly and without complaint, she shopped, cleaned, and cooked for those who needed it. She never wanted thanks or praise for this, so we will praise her today. Brenda was loved dearly, and will be deeply missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband George; her sister Marie; her brother Steve; and her soul-mate Ron. Brenda is survived by her brother Ted; son Troy; daughter Tracy; grandchildren, Haley, Adam, Malory, Sierra, Molly, Justin; great-grandchildren, Hunter and Jackson; and great-granddaughter Simone; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Brenda’s family has chosen to remember her life privately. Those wishing to honor Brenda’s life may do so with a donation to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, 230 East Ohio Street, Suite 500, Chicago, Illinois, 60611 or to the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County, P.O. Box 1294, Rockland, Maine 04841.

Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.

I was Brenda's Medicare Insurance broker for a short time and would like to pass on my prayers to the family.

Brenda was very sweet and one of my more optimistic clients.

Sue and my two Boys Mark and Jeff they always looked forward on going to Crockett Beach with her and my sisters Golden Retriever This Dog was as special as she was he loved going to the beach with her she would throw a small rock into the water and he would go under the water sometime would go by until he found the right rock he returned to Brenda with the rock. May she rest in peace with her loved ones and may god rewards her for all the good thing she did in this life.

Such a loss to our world but a precious gift for Heaven. I'm so grateful for the love, joy & kindness she gave our family. So many laughs & precious memories we created. She was so witty and truly treasured her life & family. There is comfort in knowing she was a Christian. May those who loved her find comfort in their memories.
