"Lou" Obituary

Louise A. Brundage, October 25th, 1931 to July 18th, 2022 Louise A. Brundage was born in Newton, MA to the late Kathleen Haff Anthony and the late Raymond Brown Anthony. She died peacefully in the Virginia home of her son and daughter-in-law, Eric and Kathy Brundage. She is also survived by son Laurence P. Brundage (Barbara), daughter Gail Brundage (Timothy Brunker); grandchildren Sean Brundage (Yelena), Martha Alimi (Olaoluwatoni), Theodore Brundage (Suchita), and Leslie Brunker; great-granddaughter Jahnvi Brundage; and her sisters Rachel Houseberg and Deborah Smith. She was predeceased by her husband of 65 years, Thomas R. Brundage, Jr. and granddaughter Tonia Brundage Amato. Lou graduated from Pembroke College, Brown University in 1953 with a degree in Psychology. She married later that year and then she and Tom moved around a bit while he was active-duty Navy. They settled in Wallingford, CT where they had their 3 children and lived for more than a decade. A resident of the Spring Glen section of Hamden, CT for more than 50 years, Lou helped her fellow residents find the books they desired and the answers they sought for the 30 years she worked in the Hamden library. Upon her retirement as the Director in 2001, the library branch at 91 Circular Avenue was renamed the Louise A. Brundage Community Branch Library in her honor. During her tenure, the library converted from the card catalog to a digital catalog, a shift she was instrumental in implementing. Lou’s impact to the community spread well beyond her work in the library. She was a Girl Scout for decades and was widely appreciated for recruiting troop leaders and teaching them all things scouting, leading troops herself and teaching more than one generation of girls what it means to serve, running the Girl Scout’s shoreline day camp so hundreds of Scouts could enjoy summer fun, and organizing countless cookie sales. She also was a member of the League of Women Voters, the American Association of University Women, and the Daughters of the American Revolution. She is missed but will be long remembered for her sense of humor, always being up for a game of Pounce, and her fabulous cooking. Carry on, Mom; you earned this rest. Louise was a cherished resident of Spring Arbor of Salisbury Assisted Living for the last three years. In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made in Lou’s memory to Crater Community Hospice, 3916 South Crater Road, Petersberg, VA 23805
