Beverly Gayle Peck Brunski, 86, died Friday, July 8, 2022 in Pleasant Grove, Utah of causes incident to old age.

Bev was born on May 11, 1936 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Thelma Lucile Davis and Rodney Peck, the third child of seven.

She spent most of her childhood in Salt Lake City, with a short stint in Pioche, Nevada and graduated from South High School in Salt Lake City in 1954. After high school, Bev attended both the University of Utah and Brigham Young University in 1961. Bev graduated with her Bachelor's of Science Degree in Nursing from Brigham Young University. Throughout her life she worked at different hospitals in various states, including Utah, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado. During Bev's nursing career were years of working in the burn unit, the psych unit, as a visiting nurse, and she finished her career in the well-baby nursery.

Bev married Raymond John Brunski on June 16, 1958 in Ely, Nevada. Bev and Ray met on a blind date when Ray was stationed at Hill Air Force base in Utah. They had three children and raised their family in Utah, Nevada, Arizona and Colorado. Raymond died on June 9, 1996, just shy on their 38th wedding anniversary.

Bev was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in various callings all her life. Since she moved around quite a bit in her early married life, it seemed that she was destined to teach Primary age boys forever. She must have had invisible ink on her forehead that said "Blazer" teacher that only bishops could read!

Bev also served a s a Relief Society President, a librarian in several church buildings, and a missionary in the mission office of the Colorado Denver North Mission. In addition to church callings, she started Book Clubs as she was a voracious reader, was called to be a quilting chairman even though she had never quilted, but quickly learned, was incredibly compassionate and had shoulders that everyone could cry on. She sewed, knitted and crocheted for pleasure and various humanitarian projects and taught her daughters to do the same, gave great hugs, and traveled on her own after her husband died.

Bev is survived by her children: Rayanne Brunski Melick (Chuck) of Pleasant Grove, Utah, Becki Brunski of La Mesa, California, and Joseph Brunski of La Canada, California. Bev and Ray have three grandchildren: Crystal Dawn Melick (deceased), Charles Alvin Melick III (CAM) (Melanie) and Alyssa Dawn Melick Lloyd (McKay), seven (soon to be eight great grandchildren): Drew Madison Melick, Charles Alvin Melick IV, Spencer Ray Melick, Owen Jay Melick, Oaklie Dawn Lloyd, Raylie Kay Lloyd, and Hayzlie May Lloyd plus two honorary grandchildren: Joan Kubicek (Ben) and Anne Salorio.

The Brunski/Melick/Lloyd families would like to thank the wonderful caregivers at Alpine Valley Care Center in Pleasant Grove, Utah who took such great care of our Mom. They demonstrated Christlike love for Bev and for that we are truly grateful for their kindness and compassion.
