Obituary Our Dear Auntie Lillie Lillie Geneva Thompson was born in Columbia, South Carolina. She was the daughter of the late Daniel Entzminger and Minnie Hagler Entzminger. She moved to New York City at age 18, to better her life. Whenever she came home for a visit, I remember her as being beautiful. She would often visit during Christmas and in the summer time. Whenever she came home, she would bring the three sisters dresses, the colors would be different, but the dresses were made alike. I remember her telling how she grew up in New York during her younger years, the Roaring 20’s, Renaissance Times, she had a chance to meet movie stars, R&B singers, jazz singers, Ella Fitzgerald, Sammy Davis, Jr., Frank Sinatra and others. I enjoyed hearing Auntie Lillie speak about their style of dress when they would go out at that time. I loved and welcomed those conversations whenever I visited her during the summer. We went shopping down Time Square, visiting the shops and sightseeing and just having a fun time. When she decided to further her education she was very happy, especially when receiving her diploma. After graduating she then worked for Waldorf Hotel until her retirement. Auntie Lillie was in regular attendance at Southern Baptist Church, where she met most of her friends. This is where she spent most of her time until her failing years. She was a member for 50+ years. Auntie Lillie passed away at 99 years of age, on February 2, 2024. She lived a beautiful life. She was intelligent, had a beautiful smile, was out-going, and a very sharp dresser.

New York City, NY

Beverly Elaine McKenzie was born August 20, 1950 in Clarendon, Jamaica W.I. AEer compleGng her studies at Ardenne High School and her nursing degree at The University of the West Indies, she moved to Toronto, Canada. From there she moved to New York City where she met and married Eric A. Young on August 7th, 1976. From this union were born two children, Sheryl and Eric, Jr. When she first moved to the United States, she was a devoted au pair before she was able to pursue her career as a nurse. At a Gme when the AIDS epidemic was at its height, she bravely chose to work in New York’s first State-designated AIDS unit at St. Luke’s/Roosevelt Hospital. She chose to do the necessary work that others feared when the majority of nurses decided to transfer out of that unit rather than work with AIDS paGents. With Beverly’s leadership, the unit delivered care with compassion and heart that allowed the paGents to cross-over in peace in an era when there were no effecGve medicaGons for AIDS. During her over 40 years at St. Luke’s/Roosevelt she rose to the posiGon of Assistant Head Nurse. Her colleagues describe her as tough but fair and quietly caring. She conGnued to work diligently despite developing a rare lung disease that required her to wear oxygen. AEer her reGrement, she received a lung transplant in 2019. Though the recovery was tough, she was tougher and persevered. Throughout Beverly’s life, she enjoyed mulGple pasGmes. She insGlled the love of exploring the world in her children from a very young age. During the school years, the family trips included Europe, Hawaii, Cancun and the Grand Canyon. In the later years, the family enjoyed wonderful adventures to Tanzania and Alaska. But her favorite place of all was Las Vegas. She loved the food, the lights, the shows, the excitement, the iHeart Music FesGval and of course the slot tournaments. She was an avid bowler who bowled in mulGple leagues. Her most recent sports love was tennis which she shared with her daughter. Not only was she a spectator but was also an amateur coach who could accurately pinpoint where Sheryl’s game needed improvement even though she had never picked up a racquet herself. She also had a love of music and had a good ear. She was a frequent concert goer and despite being on oxygen would groove to Uncle Charlie at the Essence FesGval and set the party off right with Bruno Mars. She also enjoyed the theater and Broadway plays. One of her favorite mocos was “Life is short, treat yourself” and that she did. While shopping for luxury was key for her, she never let a good deal, sale or coupon pass her by. As a person, you could count on her sense of humor to bring a smile to your face. She also used humor to deal with adversity. Her sassy one-liners will be missed. She was generous with her family and friends. If she ever saw someone in need, she helped them. She was thoughful and caring. She was a wonderful Mom who encouraged her children to do their best. She loved them fiercely and uncondiGonally. When she fell ill in 2023, she again demonstrated resilience and perseverance. She won her bacle against illness and gained permanent peace and comfort in the embrace of the Lord on February 6th, 2024. Her loss is deeply felt by all those who knew her. She is survived by her mother Ruby Bernard (nee Bartley), her brother Peter Bernard, her husband of 47 years Eric A. Young, her daughter Sheryl Young, MD, her son Eric A. Young, Jr. and a host of cousins, “adopted” children/grandchildren and friends. She is and will conGnue to be sorely missed.

Rev. Charles J. Brunick, C.S.P.

May 26, 1943 - Feb 26, 2024

location-icon

New York City, NY

With sadness, we announce that our brother, Rev. Charles J. Brunick, C.S.P., entered eternal life this morning, February 26, 2024. He died at the Paulist Motherhouse in New York City after a struggle with cancer. He was 80 years old. Fr. Charlie had been a member of the Paulist community for 60 years and a priest for almost 54 years. During his priesthood, he was a parish pastor, campus minister, and staff member at Catholic Information Centers. Charles Joseph Brunick was born May 26, 1943, in Quincy, MA, one of five children of Vincent and Elizabeth Brunick. When he was in the sixth grade, his family moved to Camden, NJ, where he attended Catholic schools. As a young teen, he went to a vocations exhibit in Philadelphia where he picked up a Paulist brochure with the title “Are You a Missionary to Main Street?”. “The Paulist mission of doing convert work and instruction work, and helping people to understand the Catholic faith and find their place in it, was very attractive for me in my high school years and in the early years of the seminary,” he later said. In September, 1961, he began to study at St. Peter’s, the one-time Paulist junior seminary in Baltimore, MD. He entered the Paulist novitiate on September 6, 1963. He made his First Promise to the Paulist community on September 8, 1964, and his Final Promise on September 8, 1967. During these years, he studied at St. Paul’s College, our major seminary in Washington, D.C., which was then a degree-granting institution. The Paulist Fathers News from April 1970 covers the ordination of Fr. Charlie (far right). He was ordained a priest on March 7, 1970. Fr. Charlie was a campus minister for the first 15 years of his priesthood. From 1970 to 1974, he served at the University of Texas at Austin in Austin, TX. There, he taught for-credit courses in the “Bible Chair” program. He served in Boston from 1974 to 1977 as director of the Newman Center at Boston University. In 1977, Fr. Charlie became pastor at St. John XXIII University Parish at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN, serving there through 1985. From 1986 to 1988, he was pastor of St. Rose of Lima Church in Layton, UT. Fr. Charlie entered preaching ministry and evangelization work in 1990 as an associate director of the Catholic Information Center in Grand Rapids, MI. That work took him to Chicago in 1993 where he spent the next 14 years as an associate pastor at Old St. Mary’s Church, while still being involved in evangelization work. In Chicago, Paulist Fr. Frank DeSiano recalled, Fr. Charlie “was instrumental in the extensive, nearly 15-year transition from our place on Van Buren Street to South Michigan Avenue.” “Many of the parishioners saw Charlie as the ‘continuity man,’ someone who represented the solid presence of the Paulists to them as they looked for a new site, struggled to raise money, and proudly built a new church,” said Fr. Frank. In 2007, Fr. Charlie moved to Portland, OR, where he served first at the Northwest Center for Evangelization and Reconciliation. In 2010, he became pastor at Portland’s St. Philip Neri Church. He entered senior ministry in 2016, living first at the Paulist Motherhouse in New York City. From 2018 to 2022, he lived at the Cathedral of Saint Andrew in Grand Rapids, MI. In July, 2023, he returned to the Motherhouse. In a 2022 oral history, Fr. Charlie said, “being a teacher and a preacher has been the most important part of my ministry.” “I like to see the excitement when people make connections in their lives,” he said. “I have always felt we don’t bring God or Jesus to people. They are already there. But, through our preaching and our teaching, we can help other people have those ‘aha’ moments and help them recognize God’s presence and God’s work in their lives.” Paulist Fr. Michael Evernden was in the seminary during some of the same years as Fr. Charlie, and they served together in Portland. He recalled that Fr. Charlie was willing to spend time with each person that he encountered. “Living with Charlie was like living at home — in prayer, at work, and just hanging out together — I was at home, we were at home. You can’t ask for more than that,” said Fr. Michael. In addition to his parents, Fr. Charlie was preceded in death by his brothers, Vincent and John Brunick; and his sister, Jane Kolongowski. Fr. Charlie is survived by his brother Paulists; his sister, Betty Ann Wells; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Susan Hand

Feb 20, 1956 - Feb 01, 2024

location-icon

New York City, NY

Susan Hand, the woman who lit up every room with her humor and boundless energy, has taken her final bow in the city that never sleeps. Born on February 20, 1956, in the bustling heart of New York City, Susan made her grand exit on February 1, 2024, in the very place she first opened her eyes to the world. Her departure was as she lived—naturally and on her own terms. Known affectionately as “The Favorite Aunt” to a legion of nieces, nephews, and their offspring, Susan’s family tree was a testament to her love and the joy she spread. She was the cherished sister of Carolyn, Linda, and Beth Ann, and shared a bond in memory with her late siblings, Eddie and Debbie. Susan was a cousin to many, proving that you don’t need to finish high school to ace the test of kinship. Speaking of school, Susan’s mother gave her a choice: hit the books or hit the pavement. Ever the pragmatist, Susan chose work and never looked back. She became a fixture in Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village, dedicating over 30 years to Resident Services. She wasn’t just a worker; she was a force of nature, a whirlwind of help and laughter for anyone fortunate enough to cross her path. Her posse, Dianna, Patsy, Kathie, and Kristine, collectively known as the Golden Girls, shared over 55 years of friendship with Susan. They weren't just friends; they were a sisterhood of sass and support, sharing laughs that could be heard echoing down the avenues of their beloved city. Susan’s life was an endless series of punchlines and practical help. She was the person you called when your spirits needed a lift or when you couldn’t reach the top shelf. Dependable and reliable, she was the human embodiment of New York City—never sleeping, always giving. Her interests? Well, they revolved around the people she loved. Susan could turn a family gathering into an episode of a sitcom, where she naturally played the lead role. Her generosity knew no bounds, her humor was as infectious as a viral cat video, and her love was the kind that could make the coldest New York winter feel like the first day of spring. Those who knew Susan would say she was the life of the party, even if there was no party. She didn’t need an occasion to be funny or generous; it was just who she was. Her laughter was the soundtrack to many lives, and her absence will be a silence that speaks volumes. As the curtain falls on Susan’s extraordinary life, we celebrate the joy she brought into ours. She showed us that laughter is the best legacy and that you don’t need a diploma to graduate with honors from the school of life. Susan Hand, the woman who worked tirelessly and loved fiercely, will be remembered as the aunt everyone wished they had, the friend everyone needed, and the sister everyone wanted. Her final punchline? She left us smiling through our tears, and for that, we are eternally grateful.
