Samantha Brenner Samantha Brenner

GALLOWAY – Samantha Brenner of Mays Landing was 26 when she gave birth to her third child on the Fourth of July.

Two months and 20 days later, Brenner was dead – despite heroic efforts to restore her from septic shock.

Brenner, a longtime waitress and then manager at Ruby Tuesdays in Hamilton Mall, had formerly worked at Palace on the River in Mays Landing and Rainforest Cafe.

Her parents, Gary and Debra Brenner, who she lived with, are now caring for newborn Shyla, 22-month-old Daniel and 7-year-old Damian – definitely not part of their retirement planning.
