My condolences to Carolyn's family. Be assured that God knows what you are going through, and he will soon remove the causes of your pain and suffering. Revelation 21:4 tells us, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." May this bring you comfort in your time of mourning.

Billy..so sorry to read of the passing of your mother as another in that exceptional generation is gone..We talked many times of our parents back then and I know she left you many fine memories.Keep the faith..

Doyle Crider, Atlanta, GA

My heartfelt sympathies on the loss of Carolyn. I have wonderful memories of her as a second mother to me growing up on Habersham Street.

Kathleen Robertson, Savannah, GA

I use to be Bernadette Bremer, due to personal reasons I had a complete name change: Lily Ava Franklin. Mrs. Bremer was my former mother-in-law and will always be my children's "Grandmother". Mrs. Bremer and I did not always see eye to eye and a few times we more then disagreed but in the end I never met a woman I respected more then Carolyn Enloe Bremer. Allow me to share what she taught me: 1. A lady never leaves the house without color on her lips. 2. No woman is good enough for our son's. 3. You can't argue with ignorance or a liar. 4. Manner's can take you where money can't. A few of my fondest memories of Carolyn Enloe Bremer: Mrs. Bremer planned my wedding even though I didn't want her to. Mrs. Bremer came during the middle of a civil war to assist me in finalizing the adoption of Joseph M. Bremer Jr. better known as "Seph". Mrs. Bremer then became Mammy. Mammy never complained or feared the bombs that went off in Peru but became an inspiration to us all to barge through the bombs and continue our day. Mammy cooked our home coming dinner the day Seph and I came home. Mammy kept redecorating my house when I was expecting my second son Reeves although I didn't want her to (Ha-Ha). Mammy often informed me what I was doing wrong both as a wife and a mother. I miss you Mammy! Mammy and I went water skiing on her 60th birthday behind the same boat. For the record the had to ski on two and I was on one. What a day Mammy. When Mammy was placed in her first assisted living home in Savannah, I was a frequent visitor who she couldn't remember but always called me her daughter. Upon her move to the second assisted living home, I made a point of visiting Mammy once a week and having lunch with her, how I cherish those memories. In conclusion, Mammy I love you and will never forget the life lessons you taught me. Your former daughter, Lily Ava Franklin Loving mother of two of your grandchildren.

Julia, I met your mom when I was 3 weeks old at our house in Bluffton. I have loved her ever since. She was such a big part of my and my sister's life. When I would come back into town I would always walk over for a hug. I am sure she is entertaining in her southern way in Heaven today. My prayers are with you and your family. Love, Kevin Wilson

Carolyn Enloe Bremer, 87, died July 6th in Savannah surrounded by her loving family.

She was born Aug. 24, 1929, at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham, Ala., to Julia (McGeever) and Harvey Enloe Jr.

She was predeceased by her husband, William J. Bremer Jr., and a son, Dr. Patrick Bremer, both of Savannah; her sisters, Claire Enloe and Carmen Enloe Bachman, her brother, Harvey Enloe III, and her parents.

She was a graduate of Christ the King High School in Atlanta, where her writing skills earned her a full, four-year scholarship to Rosemont College in Rosemont, Penn.

A born leader, she served as president of the freshman class at Rosemont, vice president of the sophomore class, president of the junior class and student body president her senior year. She was elected to “Who’s Who in American Colleges and Universities and graduated with a bachelor of arts degree in history and social studies.

After college, she married and moved to Savannah, where she was active in her children’s schools as well as numerous civic organizations. A Realtor in Georgia and South Carolina for more than 30 years, she was appointed to the Chatham County Health and Welfare Board, the Savannah Zoning Board of Appeals and the Metropolitan Planning Commission.

She resided in Bluffton for the last 35 years, where she served on the Beaufort County Development Board, the Beaufort County Recreation Commission, and the Beaufort County Tax Equalization Board.

For more than 20 years, she wrote “Beautiful Bluffton by the Sea,” a weekly newspaper column chronicling social happenings in the Lowcountry.

She was a member of the Bluffton Historical Preservation Society and the Savannah Golf Club.

An avid swimmer, she learned to swim when her 3-year-old daughter, Julia, nearly drowned in Herb Creek. She went on to become a Red Cross Water Safety Instructor, earned two Red Cross 50 Mile Swim patches and taught hundreds of children and adults how to swim and exercise safety on the water.

Until she became ill, one of her greatest joys was a daily swim off her dock on the May River.

She is survived by her daughter, Julia Catherine Bremer, three sons: William James Bremer III (Renee), John Enloe Bremer and Joseph McNally Bremer (Nicole), and her sister Colleen Enloe Browne of Atlanta. Also eight grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews and a host of beloved friends and extended family.

The family wishes to thank her caregivers at Buckingham South and Pruitt Hospice for all they did to make her last days comfortable.

Visitation will be from 5-7 p.m. Thursday (July 20) at Fox & Weeks, Islands Chapel, with a Rosary service beginning at 6 p.m.

The Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10 a.m. Friday (July 21) at Sacred Heart Catholic Church with the Rev. John Lyons presiding.

Burial will be in the Greenwich Section of Bonaventure Cemetery.

Remembrances to Sacred Heart Church or a Catholic charity of choice.
