Funerals Set for Ellicott City Shooting Victims
- Deceased's name: Mary-Marguerite Kohn, Brenda Brewington
Funerals are scheduled this week for Mary-Marguerite Kohn, priest at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, and Brenda Brewington, an administrator at the church.
Kohn, 62, of Arbutus, and Brenda Brewington, 59, of Ellicott City were both killed in a shooting Thursday night at St. Peter’s.
A friend of Kohn’s family said that the family wanted to donate her organs.
In a sermon at a Boston church, the speaker said Kohn’s organs “will give new life to many, in ways most of us can only imagine.”
From Virginia to Massachusetts, Missouri to Querétaro, México, churches sent their condolences to St. Peter’s on Facebook.
