Mae Arline Bredbenner, 93, formerly of Denver, passed away peacefully on July 16, 2017, in Ephrata Manor, where she resided over two years.

Born in West Reading, she was a daughter of the late Floyd and Margaret (O’Neill) Adams.

She was a 1942 Reading High School graduate and worked for Bell Telephone Co. She married Alyou O. Bredbenner Oct. 17, 1948. They lived and raised their children in Mohnton.

Mae was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Mohnton, where she taught Sunday school. Her deep faith was a quality that aided her in coping with leukemia. A consummate homemaker, she was the stabilizing force of the family; preparing meals for her husband, children and grandchildren. Alyou died in 2003.

Surviving are children: Lois M. (John E.) Haldeman and Gary L. Bredbenner, of Denver; grandsons: Dr. Michael E. (Jessica E.) Haldeman, Charleston, S.C.; and Matthew A. (Elizabeth R.) Haldeman, Collegeville; and great-grandchildren: Alivia N., Collegeville; and Ethan M., Charleston.
