Bremer, Mary V.

Mary Virginia Cagle Bremer of Metropolis, Illinois passed away on Thursday, July 16, 2020, her 96th birthday. Mary was born on July 16, 1924, daughter of Guy Joel and Lydia Mozelle Laughlin Cagle. She was preceded in death by her parents; a baby brother, Jackie Ray Cagle; two sisters, Alice Elizabeth “Betty” Compton and Helen Mae Parr; William Joseph Cagle, her brother. Her sister, Evelyn Nadine Abell survives her. Mary graduated from Metropolis High School and on August 15, 1942 married Louis G. Horman. They were blessed with three children, Randell K. Wiseman, Connie C. Bowman and Todd L. Horman. Todd died in 2001. Mary has seven beloved grandchildren: Carrie Henry, Sarah Robinson, Amanda Baylor, Tyler Bowman, Travis Bowman, Jonathan Horman and Morgan Zagaruyka. There are 13 great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews and many, many friends. Given her love of antiques and old homes, Mary and husband Louis Horman restored two historic homes in Metropolis; one known as the William P. Bruner home at 804 Girard St. and the William McBane home at 605 Girard St. Following the death of Judge Horman in 1988, Mary married Henry “Hank” Castleman; upon his death she married Edgar Bremer who also preceded her in death. In her later years, Mary’s loyalty to Metropolis and Massac County made her quite civic-minded. She accepted numerous leadership roles in community projects, namely the Massac County Historical Society, the Superman Statue Committee, the Massac County History Books, the Metropolis Historic Murals Committee, and the Kincaid Mounds Support Organization. In 2009, she received the Les Easterday Service Award. She was a member of First United Methodist Church where she was a former adult Sunday School teacher and choir member for more than 50 years. Mary will be remembered and greatly missed for her quick wit, practical thinking, and caring spirit by all who loved her. A graveside service for Mary will be held at 12:00 P.M. on Friday, July 24, 2020 at Masonic Cemetery in Metropolis with Rev. Jon Cockrel officiating.
