Jonel Janice Brenner
April 11, 1937 - June 6, 2019
Edwin A. and Johnnie M. McGann welcomed their baby girl into the world on April 11, 1937 in Boise, Idaho. Sadly, at age 82, Jonel Janice Brenner passed away June 6, 2019 under Hospice care at the home of her daughter, Rena'e.
She graduated from Boise High School in 1955 with honors. She moved to Portland, Ore., marrying Robert Dunn with whom she adopted her two children; Robbie and Rena'e. Jonel spent many years as an agent in the commercial insurance business in which she would eventually retire from. She lived in Portland, Lake Oswego, Gresham, Wilsonville and finally, her remaining years in Woodburn.
Jonel is survived by her two children, Robert "Robbie" Lee Dunn of Wilsonville and Danielle Rena'e O'Toole (Franks) of Troutdale; her brothers, Robert McGann and his wife Cathy of Texas and Edwin McGann and his wife Yvonne of Arizona; her two beautiful grand-sons, Corey and Connor Franks; numerous nieces and nephews; and great nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by both of her parents; her step-father, Robert "Bob" Sibley; and her half-brother, Johnnie Ray Sibley.
Jonel was loved by many people who will miss her dearly. She had a heart of gold always putting other people's needs before hers. She was always willing to help anyone and everyone. She leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, courage, strength, compassion and sacrifice. Heaven has truly gained a beautiful and loving angel.
Donations may be made to Gresham Memorial Chapel where we will celebrate Jonel on July 14, 2019 at 1:00 pm.
