Regina Brett’s mom passes away
Mary Brett, who included two-time Pulitzer finalist PD and former BJ columnist Regina Brett among her 11 children, passed away on Sunday, November 6.
Kent State graduate Regina came to the BJ from the Lorain Journal. She was inducted into the Cleveland Press Club of Hall of Fame in 2009.
In 2005, PD’s Connie Schultz won the Pulitzer in commentary that barely eluded Regina.
