Emily Joy Brede (nee Hausler)

03/01/1977 — 03/21/2020

Emily Joy Brede (Hausler) smiles down on us today from Heaven.

A mom before all else, Emily’s life was a gift of joy to her four children Sydney Joy, Nolan Elliott, Landry Ryan and Emmett Blair, her husband Blair, her parents Jim and Cathy Hausler, her brother Brad, her sister Amanda, her Auntie Pam, her nieces and nephews, her cousin Kenny, her grandmother Jo and a lifetime of friends who truly love her.

Emily was a marathoner (Idiots Running Club), a special education teacher, a graduate of BGSU and Lakewood High School, a proud member of “The Compound” and a superfan at her children’s sports. She loved to listen to music, play paintball, watch movies, a glass of wine by a campfire and playing board games. Emily did NOT like to be chased or tickled! :). But above all, Emily loved being “Mom” to Sydney, Nolan, Landry and Emmett.

We are blessed because Emily’s greatest gift was given to us every single day. Her ability to make everyday moments silly, memorable, and joyful leaves us a lifetime of memories to celebrate her smile, her laugh, her love. We shall never doubt that God loves us, because He gave us Emily.

Emily recently smiled and said she hopes there is a way, when she is gone, to play tricks on us, like flickering the lights, to let us know she is still here with us, watching over. We love you “Mom”. May our lights always flicker.

A private memorial will be held at a later date.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Jeff Monreal Funeral Home.
