Mrs. Brustad was a fine lady and wonderful mother. She and her family were nearby neighbors until she and her husband moved to Florida. I know she will be missed by her family. She leaves behind a loving family and cherished memories. I too appreciate the things that she did for my family.
Blessings and prayers to each of the family.

From the Colleran cousins – We are thinking about you all in this time of sadness. Genevieve shares the loss of her sister & sends her love & prayers to the family. It takes so much work to take care of a big family & the Bloechl girls knew how to do it! Think of all of the good times you have had growing up with a pile of siblings! We sure do & are so grateful for their sacrifice. Wishing you all peace at this time.

Phyllis was who I called sister-friend.(Maria) After many years of conversations and group sharing, Phyllis
and later, Hurley became people frequently visited and shared the wonderful hospitality of the
Brustad family.
Both Phyllis and Hurley meant a lot to us.
As Phyllis knows Maria will ask frequently for her intercessions for us.

Thanks be to God, He loaned us a wonderful friend and Mom to you darlings.
Maria and Kevin

Phyllis was my American host mother in 1987 when I was an exchange student in Durham. She was always friendly and helpful. I remember her nice cooking, her interaction with church activities and her daily walks to keep in a good shape. Being part of the Brustad family for several months has been an incredible positive experience for me. Thank you Phyllis.

Dear Janette, Sammi, Tyler & Trish (Noonie and the rest of the clan too :-)),

Please accept my and Russ’ sincerest condolences on the loss of your beloved mother (grandmother). She was an amazing woman who led an equally amazing life. She raised beautiful, intelligent, caring children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and that is a legacy anyone should be proud of.

Janette I know how much you did for your mother day in and day out and I am proud to call you my friend. You are a shining example of what a true devoted daughter is and remind me so much of what I went through with my own mother before losing her to cancer 9 years ago. Thank you foe being there for me when I needed you and know that Russ and I are here for you in your time of need as well.

We love you all,

In Christ’s name.
