Florence Margaret Brunt

Born September 1, 1911 – Died March 24, 2012

Florence (Flo) Brunt nee Higginson was born in Michel, BC in 1911, but spent most of her life in Nanaimo and Wall Beach.

She was predeceased by her loving husband Clement (Kemp) Brunt in 1982 and will be deeply missed by her loving and caring daughter Shirley Kosich who did a remarkable job in making her last years more comfortable, her son-in-law Michael Kosich, whom she thought was the greatest, her grandchildren Michele and Jillian whom she admired from the many years they played on the beach on to their subsequent accomplishments, her great-grandchildren Ryan and Chelsea Stanimir whom she followed so closely from the day they were born to their current University careers, Michele’s husband Bill Stanimir who kept her amused with his colourful jokes, and her neighbours and friends who were always there for her.

She enjoyed 100 years during an exciting and ever changing technological era. Her greatest wishes were to enjoy her family and friends, her garden and to live to 100, all of which she realized.

It is Florence’s request not to have a funeral service or flowers. She simply asked that those wishing to, might plant an evergreen shrub or plant in their own garden, for their enjoyment and as a remembrance of her. A special thanks goes to Stanford Place staff for their care and attention during her last two years.

YATES FUNERAL SERVICE & CREMATORIUM (250-248-5859) in care of arrangements.
