Mary-Brian Clarke death: Girlfriend of model Jeremy Ruehlemann dies aged 24 two months after him
Two months after model Jeremy Ruehlemann died, his girlfriend Mary-Brian Clarke has died aged 24.
Clarke, who worked in public relations with brands TIBI, Elizabeth Bensinger and MadHappy, was described by her family as a talented influence on the fashion industry and remembered at a church service in Houston, Texas, on Friday (overnight in Australia).
In an obituary written by her loved ones after her unexpected death on March 21, Clarke’s family said the “angels in heaven will certainly benefit from her sense of style and fashion.”

“Arriving at the gates of heaven in one of many pairs of unique sunglasses, more rings than her fingers could hold, and either a furry jacket or hat and a one-of-a-kind pair of trendy sneakers, and that magnificent smile that was a magnet for all,” the obituary reads.
“Mary-Brian will always be remembered by her contagious laugh, her witty sense of humor and her unique ability to connect with others,” they continued.
“She was a light to everyone who knew her which came from her belief in the good of others.”

Clarke’s partner, model Jeremy Ruehlemann, died only two months earlier in January at the age of 27.
Ruehlemann was remembered by designer Christian Siriano as “one of my muses and he always will be. He inspired me and I will love him forever.”
“I have never posted anything like this but to lose a friend who was such a beautiful soul is just really hard,” Siriano wrote on Instagram at the time.

“This is for Jeremy, the most beautiful man that gave so much love to everyone he met no matter what,” Siriano said.
Neither Ruehlemann nor Clarke’s causes of death have been made public, and on her own Instagram in the wake of her boyfriend’s death, Clarke shared a tribute.
“I love you forever & miss you everyday,” she wrote alongside photos of the couple.
