Dina Elizabeth Brun


Dina Elizabeth Brun

Dina Elizabeth Brun, of Moncton, passed away on May 29, 2020 from a stroke at the Moncton Hospital. 

She had just celebrated her 80th birthday at the Moncton Residence Victoria wing. 

Her late parents were Juliette (Boudreau) and Percy Biddington. She was predeceased by her cherished brother and friend, Kenny Biddington. She went to school in Shediac and worked as a cashier and bank teller as her first jobs. After marrying her husband of now 57 years, Romuald Brun, they both moved to Toronto to forge a better life. There, they also started a family. They had a daughter Renelle (Ronald) Brun and a son Marc (Cindy) Brun. 

Upon returning to NB, they settled in Cap-Pelé, where they started several businesses together and fostered a son, James Robichaud. The Fourneau Acadien stuck as a family business until her retirement. She later moved to Dieppe to spend her golden years. Dina, a true matriarch, relished in hosting family and friends. If she could feed you, she was happy. She welcomed everybody with open arms. She found peaceful pleasure working in her flower gardens. She had a fancy for shopping and playing cards. A genuine beach lover, she delighted in spending her summers near the water and sand, whether it was at their self-built cottage in Trois-Ruisseaux, or at the camp Fredericton in Square lake, or at their camper in Shediac. 

She will be deeply missed by her fellow YaYa’s, sisters Pauline (Norbert) Biddington, Nancy (Paul) Boudreau, foster sister Hazel Petitpas and by her prementioned beloved children, including the apples’ of her eye, her vivacious granddaughter, Céline (Collin) Brun and her clever grandson, Félix Brun, and by many other family and friends. 

The family would like to graciously thank the caring staff at the Victoria wing, the Oasis d’Or, and the stroke wing at the Moncton Hospital. 

A celebration of life will be held at a later date when COVID-19 social restriction measures are lifted. 

In lieu of flowers, donations to the SPCA would be appreciated.

Final arrangements are under the direction of Frenette Funeral and Cremation Centre, Shediac (506) 532-3297.
