Brunet and his companion, Patricia DuBrava, of Epping, NH; her niece Barbara Brunet of Manchester, NH; her nephew Joseph (Nancy) Brunet of South Hampton, NH; her grandniece Bridget (Scott) Lago and great grandnephew Ryder Lago of South Hampton, NH; her grandniece Emma Brunet of South Hampton, NH; her sister in-law Margaret Carrington of Mt.

Betty is predeceased by her sister in-law Audrey Brunet and brother in-law Eugene Carrington. Betty leaves several godchildren and many close friends and neighbors.
Betty was a graduate of Newburyport High School and attended Boston University for two years. Her early career included a three year role as an airline stewardess for American Airlines, based out of Chicago. She then joined the New England Telephone Company as a service representative, based in Newburyport, where she subsequently held several key management positions across the organization. After a thirty-three year career, she retired as an Area Representative for Verizon.
Betty was an avid reader who loved a sunny day at the beach with a great book. She was an avid skier and was a founding member of the Penguin Ski Club in Bartlett, NH. She proudly owned a lifetime ski pass to Attitash Mountain, where you could find her skiing from 10 am to 2 pm - when the sun was out. She was also an avid sailor who sailed from island to island across the Caribbean for several years with her husband and their friends. For many years Betty enjoyed her golf membership at the Eagle Mountain House Course in Jackson, NH. Betty loved to entertain and tell stories. Her homes - including the big red deck at Salisbury Beach - were a frequent gathering place for family and friends, where Betty made all feel welcome and comfortable.
The family wishes to thank the doctors, nurses and the healthcare workers at Anna Jaques Hospital, Newburyport and at High Pointe House, Haverhill for the care and comfort they provided to Betty during her illness.
To honor Betty’s wishes, there will be no calling hours or funeral services. Family and friends will be invited to a ‘Day of Celebration’ at a later date arranged at the convenience of her family.
