Obituary Condolences

BROADHURST, Alice E. On June 25, 2010 the gracious life of Alice E. Broadhurst came to a gentle passing; joining her beloved husband, Russell. Both of Alice's daughters were at her side. Alice was born August 10, 1915, in Paterson, NJ to Edward and Elizabeth Bohl Jr. She spent her early years in Glen Rock, NJ before entering the nursing profession at Syracuse University. She began her career as an Occupational Nurse at Lever Brothers in New Jersey. Alice and Russ were married in May 1942 and first lived in Middletown. Alice and her family then moved to Cromwell, after which she relocated to Ivoryton and finally to Chester. She worked at the Cromwell Post Office for many years, all the while volunteering (over 4,000 hours) at both Middlesex Hospital and the Shoreline Clinic in Essex. She was a member of South Congregational Church in Middletown for 68 years. Alice was actively involved in the choir and in Girl Scouts. She led a very full life, enjoying music, piano playing, reading, traveling, bridge, knitting (knitting newborn hats for the hospital) and above all, enjoying her family. Alice was fortunate to have recently seen her four grandchildren, their spouses and her five great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband, Russell; siblings, Frank and Les; and her son-in-law, John Cupole. She leaves her loving legacy to her two daughters, Lynn Vicki Moore of Salem, NH, her husband, Bill and their sons BJ, his wife Joni and children Quinn and Calli of MA, and Scott Russell and children Ellie, Ty and Shane of AZ; and daughter, Alice Dee Cupole, her daughters Charline Cupole and husband Michael Thorns and Kristen Cupole and her husband, Terry Arena all of CT; one brother-in-law, Fred Broadhurst in TN, several nieces and nephews as well as many special friends. She will be missed every day and in every way, but know that her legacy will live through family, friends, and those lives she so richly touched. The family wishes to thank Middlesex Hospital staff and volunteers on 4 North and especially the Hospice Unit for their dedicated and tender loving care. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, July 10, 2010 at 11 a.m. at the South Congregational Church, 9 Pleasant Street in Middletown. Private interment will be held in the Centerbrook Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to South Congregational Church, 9 Pleasant Street, Middletown, CT 06457 or to Hospice and Palliative Care of Middlesex Hospital, 28 Crescent Street, Middletown, CT 06457. Arrangements by the Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home in Centerbrook.
