KATH­LEEN BRUNT

Accrington Observer - - OBITUARIES -

MRS Kath­leen Theresa Brunt, of Fell View, Whal­ley, died on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 28, age 80.

Kate, as she was known, mar­ried Roger, whom she met at a dance in her home city of Carlisle where she lived with her par­ents Philip and Jane Leonard and her el­der sis­ter Aline, in 1959 mov­ing with Roger first to Black­burn, then Ac­cring­ton and to Read and, lat­terly, Whal­ley sup­port­ing him un­selfishly through­out his ca­reer.

She had three chil­dren - Peter in 1964, Ian in 1967 and He­len, a par­tic­u­lar de­light to her, in 1978. She doted on all three of them and also her two grand­chil­dren Fiona and Alas­tair, tak­ing a burn­ing pride in their achieve­ments.

She was an ac­tive mem­ber of Ladies Cir­cle and later In­ner Wheel, en­joy­ing the fel­low­ship and fun to be had with her many friends, friend­ships that en­dured to the end of her life.

Kate trained as a chil­dren’s nurse be­fore her mar­riage and later, when her two eldest chil­dren were at school, as a pri­mary school teacher. She taught at West End Pri­mary, Oswaldtwistle and in sev­eral other pri­mary schools in the Hyn­d­burn area.

There will be a Re­quiem Mass at English Mar­tyrs Church in Whal­ley at 11am on Tues­day, De­cem­ber 11, the ser­vice con­ducted by Fa­ther John Mars­land be­fore cre­ma­tion at 1pm at Ac­cring­ton Cre­ma­to­rium.

Fam­ily flow­ers only please. Do­na­tions to Macmil­lan Can­cer for whom Kate cam­paigned long be­fore the ill­ness re­turned and took her when thought to have been beaten. She bore both ill­nesses with great strength, courage and hu­mour; some­thing the doc­tors and nurses treat­ing her com­mented on.

Fu­neral di­rec­tor: Peter Re­gan, Hyn­d­burn Fu­neral Ser­vices, Queens Road, Ac­cring­ton.
