BRUSHETT, KENNETH
(1940 - 2015)

Passed away on Wednesday, March 4, 2015, due to a sudden aortic aneurism, Kenneth Brushett of Bradford, Ontario, formerly of Bulls Cove, Burin, in his 74th year. He leaves behind a large circle of family and friends, both here in Newfoundland, as well as Ontario, where he lived out most of his years. Predeceased by his mother and step father, Edith Mary and Eric Inkpen. Kenneth's large circle of friends in Ontario have already held two separate memorials for him; one at the Bradford Alliance Church and the other at Lakeside Nazarene Church. A testament to his kindness and generosity towards others. Kenneth made many friends over the years as a result of his kind and talkative nature and his willingness to help others; whether it would be to offer someone a ride to bible study or deliver a meal to seniors living on their own. He was also very passionate about playing "Bridge" and was a member of the Bridge Club and from what I hear he was really good at it. He also cared very deeply for his family and made sure to stay in touch with them regularly. He lived a simple life being enriched by the people around him and not material things. The Brushett family will be holding a Memorial Service at Serenity Funeral Home, Burin on Friday March 4, 2016 between 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. with interment to follow at the Pentecostal Cemetery, Salmonier Burin.

She will be remembered for her remarkable wit, her humorous stories, and her integrity as a person. She spoke the truth and she faced life head on, always with a sense of humour. She was a tireless worker and a highly competent manager - of her local parish in her early days as the priest's assistant, of her family of ten, and the hotel and bar business she built with her husband Bud. All the while she served leadership roles in the local church and hospital auxiliary and the provincial lounge and tourism associations. Rita was well respected by all who knew her - family, friends, employees, business associates and community members. Rita was also an excellent cook who fed thousands of visitors to St. Lawrence and catered hundreds of weddings and banquets.
