Delta loses basic skills aid, Fauna Brewer, after battle with cancer


College is a learning experience sometimes good, and sometimes bad but through it all you have people at the school that think of students as family.

Fauna Brewer was one of those people, one that truly cared for the students.

A Delta College employee for over 25 years, dubbed the “Queen of Shima” by her students.

She loved her work at Delta College.

Brewer was in Instructional Support Assistant III in the Applied Math Lab which later became called the Basic Skills Math Lab.

“Fauna was loyal Delta employee and an amazing friend. She cared about everyone and to anyone who was around her very long she was like a mom,” said Margaret Thomas, Math 76 and 78 instructor.

She help students improve their basic skills math to gain the knowledge needed to get into higher level courses.

Delta College recently lost Brewer, after a valiant battle with cancer, and other complications.
