Brenda Scowcroft (Blette)

Brenda A. (Scowcroft) Blette, 68, died Tuesday, October 8, in the Ichabod Washburn House, Worcester, surrounded by her loving family. She is survived by her loving, devoted husband of 50 years, Donald F. Blette; two sons, Mark B. Blette, and Joseph F. Blette, of Whitinsville; a daughter, Theresa- Marie Senecal, and her husband, Blaine, of Manchaug; and four grandchildren, Catelyn, Joseph, Jayde, and Shyan.

Mrs. Blette was born in Milford, March 30, 1945, the daughter of Alex and Kathleen (Devaney) Scowcroft. She grew up in Whitinsville and lived there until moving to Manchaug in 2001. She was a graduate of Northbridge High School, and Leo's Beauty Institute. She was a benefits administrator at Alternatives Unlimited for ten years, prior to retiring in 2010. Previously, she worked at the Paul Revere Insurance Company. Following her retirement, Mrs. Blette was a substitute teacher at Sutton High School. She was a member of Saint Patrick's Church in Whitinsville, and she was an active participant with the Northbridge High School, Class of '62 Golden Girls. In 1972, she served as secretary of the Northbridge Bicentennial Committee. She enjoyed cooking, reading, crossword puzzles, shopping, going to the beach, and hosting family gatherings.

     Mostly, however, Brenda will be remembered as being kind, compassionate and caring; an individual who was giving of herself, and who loved the time she spent with her husband, children, grandchildren, son-in-law, and her many friends. Mrs. Blette's Funeral Mass will be held at 10 AM, Monday, October 14, in Saint Patrick's Church, Cross Street, Whitinsville. Burial will follow in Saint Patrick's Cemetery.

Brenda passed away October 8, 2013 after suffering a stroke.  She was the life of the Golden Girls get togethers and she will be missed.  Brenda took pride in her children and grandchildren and rightly so.  Her family was so devoted to her during her time of suffering.  RIP, Brenda.  Know that you were loved!

Brenda, I am so glad we "re-connected" a few years back.When you, Kathy, and I started the Golden Girls, we didn't know how many of the local girls would join us. I think we ended up, on a good day, 16 of us. Now we will have that empty chair, but we will NEVER forget you. I can hear your laugh in the back of my head.

You are a terrific lady, but God wanted you more. When you got sick and ended up in the hospital, you were pretty positive and planned our wine parties and all the good things we enjoyed. But when you had this stroke, all of us were devastated. But we know where you are and watch over us all.

Your family is a great bunch of people. That is because of the way YOU and Don brought them up. They will miss you lots, but they know the love you had for them.

I hope our class members realize what a great person you were and am sure everyone has a memory of you.

Rest in peace, Brenda. God bless. We will miss you.

Your friend, Margie
