    Country Club Scene Of Pretty Wedding
    Jean Brunk Becomes the Bride of Robert Sackett
    The Casper Country club was the scene of a charming wedding on Saturday afternoon, April 5 at 2 o'clock, when Miss Jean Louise Brunk, attractive daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M. L.

    The wedding reception was held in the club rooms following ceremony. The wedding cake was arranged on the bride's table in the dining room, with pink roses and stephanotis and candles as decorations for the table.
    Mrs. Colin Kennedy and Mrs. Paul Jacques served the cake after the bridal couple had cut it, and the punch was served by Mrs. Daniel A. Scott. The bride's book was in charge of Miss Roberta Cooper and Miss Dolores Frost.

    Egypt Farmer Hit By R., S. & E. Car
    Said to Have Been Staggering Along the Track.
    Fairport, April 30.—Fred Sackett, 55 years old, an Egypt farmer, was struck by a Rochester, Syracuse & Eastern car at a point between stops 19 and 20 this afternoon and almost instantly killed. The car was stopped and members of the train crew went back to investigate. They found the man dead with his head badly crushed by contact with the front of the car.
    Coroner Killip was notified, and ordered the remains brought to this village. The motorman told the coroner that when he first saw Sackett he was staggering ahead of the car in an apparently intoxicated state. He staggered off the tracks, after a warning whistle had been sounded, but just as the car was about to pass him he stumbled and fell over upon the tracks. The car threw him to one side. The coroner will hold an inquest.

    Beverly “Bev” Sackett Hallett
    Beverly “Bev” Sackett Hallett was born Aug. 28, 1948, at Highland Hospital in Rochester, New York. Her beautiful life ended at the same location on July 24, 2023, at the age of 74, following complications from the cancer she fiercely battled on and off for nearly 12 years. She is survived by her devoted husband of 54 years, Michael; her children, Chad (Amy) and Carrie (Michael Paris); her grandchildren, Fisher, Will and Senna; her brother, Raymond Sackett (Donna); her sister, Sue Kretchmer; and many loving brothers- and sisters-in-law, cousins, and nieces and nephews on both the Sackett and Hallett sides of the family.
    She is predeceased by her parents, Herman and Mildred Sackett of South Lima, N.Y.; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Wilton and Dorothy Hallett of Caledonia, N.Y.; and her brother-in-law, Jim Kretchmer of Conesus, N.Y.
    Bev graduated from Livonia Central School and started her career with the Rochester Telephone Company. Bev and Mike were married on June 14, 1969, and built their home on Dutch Hollow Road in Avon, N.Y., where they raised their children and became active members of their community.
    While their kids were young, Bev provided support and assistance to Mike and his trucking business. Later, she returned to working outside of the home and worked for XLM/Hon Industries; Essex Investments; and lastly, Bryant and Stratton, where she was a receptionist/friend of everyone who walked in the door. She retired in 2014, allowing more time for her passions.
    Bev was a devoted gardener, reader, and most importantly, a friend. She was always available for a call or visit, made connections easily and readily with everyone she met, and like her gardens, cherished and nurtured her life-long friendships. She enjoyed Friday-night suppers with her friends and family, as well as breakfast gatherings with the ladies of Dutch Hollow Road and former colleagues.
    A special thank you goes out to all our friends and neighbors who have been behind the scenes supporting the family. Additionally, we are extremely thankful to the medical teams that provided her with care and support during her nearly 12-year cancer battle: Dr. Balaji and the Avon Medical Group, UR Gynecologic Oncology (Lattimore), the Highland Hospital Infusion Center; and the staff at 5 East of Highland Hospital.
    A celebration of Bev’s beautiful life will take place on Friday, Aug. 4 at 11 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church of East Avon, 5605 East Avon-Lima Road, Avon, N.Y., with a reception following at Willow Creek, 3100 Rochester Rd., Lakeville, N.Y.

    Marian Sackett Whiting
    Southbury — Marian Sackett Whiting of Southbury, formerly a longtime resident of Bethany, died peacefully on December 26, 2023, at the age of 94.
    Born on May 30, 1929, in New Haven, Marian grew up believing that the Memorial Day parades and picnics were in honor of her birthday. She was one of the nine children born to the late Charles Sackett, Sr., and Florence Riley Sackett in New Haven.
    She was predeceased by the greatest love of her life, her husband, Leonard C. Whiting, Jr. Theirs was a fairy tale romance with Leonard announcing to her parents that he would marry their daughter even before their first date.
    Family was everything to Marian. Left to treasure her memory are her daughters, Darcey DiMenna (Daniel) of Texas and Brenda Beard (Geoffrey) of Connecticut, and the grandchildren, who called her Nani, Jeffery Surprise (Sarah) and Gayle DiMenna-Maus (William), both of Texas, Leonard Beard (Valerie) of Connecticut, Laura Conte (Chad) of New Hampshire, Andrew Beard (Brooke) of Massachusetts and Rebecca Beard of Pennsylvania, as well as 10 great-grandchildren, all of whom brought her the greatest joy by calling her Great Nani.
    Marian is also survived by her sister, Betty LaCroix; her brother-in-law, Joseph Massini, and her sisters-in-law, Ann Sackett and Barbara Whiting. Also to remember her are more than 40 nieces and nephews who lovingly called her Aunt Mare.
    Growing up in Woodbridge, Marian worked as a clerk for Yale University prior to her marriage.
    After raising her two daughters, she taught bowling to children with special needs and volunteered her time at Partnership in Hamden helping the senior residents to make crafts.
    Marian excelled at arts and crafts and many benefited from her talent. From handmade dresses to quilts, dolls and doll clothing, beaded Christmas ornaments and knitting, there was no limit to her interests and talent. During her last years, despite having lost most of her vision, she continued to knit squares that were combined to make crazy blankets for her 10 great-grandchildren.
    Her philosophy for life was kindness, always reminding us that if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. “While we were often embarrassed as children by her chatting with strangers in the grocery store, we find ourselves doing the same thing.” It never hurts to be nice to people.
    She welcomed everyone to her home and was a great listener, imparting her wisdom and humor when someone needed it.
    A service to celebrate this charming, loving woman will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, January 13, at the Middlebury Congregational Church, 1242 Whittemore Rd., Middlebury. Time for visiting with the family will follow the service in the church meeting hall.
    The service will be live-streamed for those unable to attend: https://www.youtube.com/c/middleburycongreagationalchurch.
    In lieu of flowers, donations are sought in Marian’s name to the Southbury Food Bank, 88 Main St. South, Southbury 06488; www.SouthburyFoodBank.org.

    I. Chronicles, Chapter II.
       1. And it came to pass in the reign of Ulysses, the son of Jesse, and in the fifth year of his reign, that Simeon, the son of John, the son of Samuel of the tribe of Ford, who dwelt on the plains of Judea to the southward of Mount Rat, opened his mouth and spake unto Malinda, his wife, who was the daughter of Moses, the son of Benjamin of the tribe of Sackett, saying:
       2. Behold, have not these two sisters journeyed from a far city, where smoke ascendeth continually, even unto this land in which their fathers dwelt? and, behold, are they not yet with us?
       3. Therefore, is it not meet that we should assemble together the remnant of thy tribe and kindred that we may make merry with our friends?
       4. And she answered and said, as it seemeth good unto my lord, so do.
       5. So they sent forth and summoned all the tribe of Sackett who dwelt in the region round about.
       6. And in the eighth month and thirteenth day of the month, this people said one to another, come, let us arise and go unto the house of Simeon, and we will prepare food for the feast to take with us.
       7. And there came Orpha and Minerva, daughters of Benjamin, who dwelt together to the southward, and their charioteer was Frederick, of the tribe of Brinsmade; and with them three daughters of Marilla, the widow of Henry, the son of Benjamin, the son of Benjamin.
       8. From the northward, even from the country of Warren, came Eliza, widow of Myron, the son of Achsah the daughter of Benjamin.
       9. And Mary, the daughter of Justus, the son of Benjamin, and wife of George, who was a tiller of the soil, bringing their children and children's children.
       10. Also, Emily a sister of Mary, who dwelt where her forefathers had lived for many generations; now the husband of Emily was Henry, the son of Silas, and they, together with their household, journeyed southward.
       11. And Charles, the son of Achsah the daughter of Benjamin, drove in his chariot alone, for Phebe, his wife, was ill at home.
       12. Now, Lucy, the daughter of Justus, the son of Benjamin, who dwelt far to the southward, even by the sea coast, came with Louis, her husband, who was a skilful player of instruments, together with their children.
       13. Lucinda, the wife of Edgar, son of Sheldon, came also with her husband to the feast.
       14. And all the sons of Simeon, yea, and his whole household, together with all that had come from far were numbered, and their number was thirty and three.
       15. And it came to pass that when all the people were assembled, they had much pleasant discourse together, and Lois, a little maiden of the tribe of Ford, who had journeyed from a far country, even from beyond the sea, lifted up her voice and sang in an unknown tongue, making sweet music before all the people.
       16. Now, when the set time was come, the wives and daughters prepared the feast quickly from the many baskets full which were gathered in store; for they had all things pleasant to the taste and goodly to the eye.
       17. Now Darius, the son of Clark, the son of Benjamin, who was a learned man among the people, had sent a present to Orpha, a little tea, from beyond Jordan, even from China, and Orpha brought this present, and other goodly things to the feast, saying, let us all drink of it; and the fragrance filled the whole house where they were sitting.
       18. And when they were seated at the feast, Simeon, who was a ruler of the synagogue, arose and spake unto Henry, saying, it is meet that we call upon the name of the Lord; so Henry gave thanks unto the Lord; then all the people ate and were filled, and the fragments were many.
       19. Now it came to pass that Charles, not being in the presence of his wife, drank mightily of the tea, until he arose in his cunning and craftiness and seized upon all the sweets which were reserved for the hand-maidens who had served, and a fierce strife arose among the people; then the women arose and bound him with sinewy cords and the contention ceased not till all the sweets were devoured.
       20. When the even was come, the people departed from the house of Simeon and journeyed to their own homes.

    Beatrice Walton Sackett
    To the many virtues for which Mrs. Beatrice Walton Sackett was justly famed must be added one of heroism. With great courage she battled in recent years the encroachment of mailgnant disease, underwent numerous operations which served only to prolong life yet she held herself to her public and private duties with unconquerable fortitude until finally she had to yield to her physical infirmity.
    Here was a woman who could be described as the ideal modern woman: of fine intelligence, strong character, yet truly feminine, who renderd exceptional service in public position and maintained her home and cared for her family. Her work as private secretary to governors of the state and as member of the state board of higher education was regarded as outstanding. Her personal charm and graciousness of manner won for her a host of friends who share with relatives genuine grief over her passing.

    An affray, that may turn out to be a murder, occurred in Sheridan county over the use of water for irrigating purposes, between Lee Sackett and a Swede, employed by Abraham Zullig, near Big Horn. The Swede is said to have attacked Sackett with a shovel, whereupon the latter drew a pistol and shot the Swede twice. Sackett got a doctor to attend his victim and gave himself up to the sheriff. He was discharged because it was not supposed the wounds were serious. But the Swede is reported as now being in a dangerous condition.

For many years, she diligently maintained a personal diary and regularly corresponded with friends and family through heartfelt letters. Her words were a testament to her inner strength and gentle spirit.
    Marjorie was preceded in death by her loving husband of 80 years, Charlie Willard Sackett, her grandchild Justin Daryl Sackett, step-sister Virginia Lee Parker, and step-brothers Jack Williams and James Williams.
