Ocean Pines

Edith Ann (Edie) Brennan of Ocean Pines, died on Oct. 12, 2020.

Edie was a star in the field of real estate and a star of the local stage.

Her real estate career spanned more than 40 years. She was the first woman “on the line,” working for Boise Cascade selling lots in Ocean Pines in the early to mid-70’s.

She and one other Realtor sold almost all of the units at the Capri condominium in Ocean City right after it was built.

She received many accolades over the years including Realtor of the Year in 1985, the Coastal Realtors Lifetime Achievement award in 2015 and the National Realtor Emeritus award in 2018.

Edie loved getting to know her clients and she took pride in delivering professional service. She was most recently an associate broker with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services/PenFed Realty.

She entertained audiences with the Ocean Pines Players as a lead actor and she worked behind the scenes as a director.

She was involved with more than 50 productions. She loved musicals and singing.

She was also a past president of the community theater group. Her favorite role was that of Gypsy Rose Lee.

Edie is survived by her husband, James Bentley (Jim) Adcock; a daughter, Amy Brennan and son-in-law, Ron Ohringer; and two grandsons, Casey and Derek Ohringer.

Edie was very close with her nieces, Marilyn Wellington (Mark), Amber Burgess (Randy) and Katrina McDonald, and all of their children.

Edie was also a step-mom to Jim’s children, Jason Adcock and Jessica Dziemburski (Bob), and grandmother to their children, Makenna and Kara Dziemburski.

Edie was preceded in death by her mother and father, Marilyn Miller DeHoff and Albert Bixler DeHoff, and her sister, Kristy McDonald.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Coastal Hospice & Palliative Care in gratitude for their love and good care of Edie (http://www.coastalhospice.org).
