Iloene “Posey” Flower Brennan
BRISTOL — Iloene “Posey” Brennan, 94, passed away May 8, just 10 days shy of her 95th birthday.
Iloene was born May 18, 1925, in Hartland Four Corners, to Diamond Rose and J. Howard Flower.
She graduated from Windsor High School as class Valedictorian. Iloene then graduated from UVM with a B.A. in English. She married her first husband George “Bud” Adams, but he passed away unexpectedly shortly thereafter. Iloene then went back to UVM to obtain her teaching degree and went on to teach at Beeman Academy, Bristol High School, and Mount Abraham Union High School, where she met the love of her life, Joseph Brennan. She and Joe married in 1975 and she inherited three sons, Kenneth, Richard, and Michael, whom she raised from the age of seven.
Iloene and Joe spent many wonderful years together enjoying the company of family and friends, and especially their annual winter trips to Florida to spend time with her sister Ildolyn and husband Robert Ahearn until Joe’s passing in 1998.
Iloene achieved her dream of writing two books and having them published. She was also an ordained lay minister and Hospice volunteer for many years.
She leaves behind her sister Ildolyn and Husband Robert Ahearn; stepsons Kenneth Brennan and wife Nancy, Richard and wife Karin, and Michael Brennan and wife Sheila. She also has many nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great-, and great-great-grandchildren whom she loved dearly.
Iloene was predeceased by brothers Thalen, Launise, and Norlan Flower, sisters Mavis Ebbett, Lyrace Fontaine, Gracile Lord, and Zelva Ladeau. Iloene also leaves many precious friends, especially her dear neighbor and friend Linda Lathrop, who visited her every day for years and helped her in so many ways.
Due to the Covid situation a memorial service will be held at a later date, which will be posted prior to the service. In lieu of flowers donations would be welcomed in her memory to The Bristol Rescue Squad, 45 Monkton Rd, Bristol, VT 05443.
