Obituary of Agnes Brazill
Agnes (Billie) Grace Brazill, passed away on Monday, November 28th, 2022, in Morristown, New Jersey. Billie, the youngest of four girls, was born and raised in Indiana. She met her devoted husband, Edward (Burt), at a school dance while he was in the service and stationed in Seymour; Billie’s hometown. After marrying, she and Burt lived in Geneva, New York, and Paramus, New Jersey, and in 1957 they eventually settled down in Greenbrook, NJ. Billie and her family spent summers at their home in Long Beach Island, New Jersey, and 20 years ago they decided to make LBI their permanent residence.
Billie was a former member of St. John’s RC Church in Dunellen, St. Mary’s Stony Hill in Watchung, as well as St. Francis of Assisi RC Church in Brant Beach. Billie was a professional bookkeeper and a seamstress before becoming a full-time homemaker, raising her eight children; however, she never stopped sewing. She made fantastic Halloween costumes for her children and grandchildren each year, and costumes for many schools plays as well. She loved traveling, visiting historic sites and famous landmarks; often dragging her children along. She enjoyed tennis, gardening, reading, and spending time at the beach. She also loved a good party; especially with her family and she was usually the last to leave.
Billie is predeceased by her husband, Edward (Burt), and a beloved son-in-law, John Bera. She is survived by her eight children and their spouses: Teresa, Patty, Burt and his wife Melissa, Billy and his wife, Janet, Diane, Donna, and her husband Mark, Dennis and his wife Cathy and Kelly and her husband, John. She is also survived by her 22 grandchildren and her 24 great-grandchildren whom she loved dearly. Billie’s entire life was devoted to her family and celebrating great times together.
Funeral services are private. A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.
