Vida P. Brennan, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother


ELDRED, Pa. — Vida P. Brennan, 88, of Newell Creek Road, passed away on Jan. 5, 2020, at Bradford Regional Medical Center, following a long illness.


Born on March 21, 1931, in Port Allegany, she was a daughter of Leon and Lila Main Hultz. On Jan. 13, 1951, in the St. Raphael Church in Eldred, she married Thomas R. Brennan, who passed away on April 20, 2003.


Vida was a 1949 graduate of Port Allegany High School and had resided in Newell Creek since 1951. She had been employed at the Cameo Doll Factory in Port Allegany; Kresge Department Store in Olean; and later at the Glendorn Resort in Bradford, as a cook. For many years, she operated a catering service at her home.


Vida was a member of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sartwell, where she was a member of the Altar Rosary Society, and where she had taught religious education. She enjoyed crocheting afghans and other craft projects, cooking and sitting outside on her swing.


Surviving are a son, Ricky Brennan at home; two daughters, Judy (Ken) Kio and Donna (Gary) Hobbs, both of Eldred; four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren; a sister, Lois (Charles) Olmstead of Port Allegany; and a sister-in-law, Joann Crowley of Turtlepoint.


She was preceded in death by a son, Michael Brennan in 1970; and a brother, Marion Hultz.
