Brills, Lydia (Puskas)

Lydia Brills died Wednesday, January 31, 2018, in Carrollton, Texas, at the age of 95.  She was born in Leask Saskatchewan, Canada, the eighth of nine children to Sarah and John Puskas.  Lydia was the last surviving sibling of the family.

The family moved to Wallaceburg, Ontario when she was a child, and she lived there until marrying her husband, Gerald Brills of Detroit, Michigan, in 1949. They lived most of their lives in Detroit where they raised their children; Dennis Brills of Farmington Hills, Michigan; Pamela Brills of Eugene, Oregon; and Judith Burdette of Dallas, Texas. A grandson, Scott Brills, also resides in Farmington Hills, Michigan.

Lydia enjoyed many years of worldwide travel with her husband and friends; some of her favorite places were India and Nepal. She also enjoyed gardening, bowling and golf, which she was able to enjoy even more when they moved to Northport, Florida in 1982.  Gerald preceded her in death in 1995, and Lydia continued her life there until 2014, when she moved to Carrollton to be closer to family.  She enjoyed a busy social life with her many friends there until her death.

The family wishes to acknowledge and thank Vitas Hospice In-Patient Unit, Baylor Scott and White Medical Center, Carrollton, Texas for their exceptional care of Lydia and the family during her final days.

No funeral services are planned. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Vitas Hospice.

To Pamela and family......it is sad to hear of your mother's passing no matter the age......she was a great person, as well as your father, to work with over the years. Jeannette and I keep in touch and that is how I heard, and was good to learn she was near family in Texas. My most fun memory is the day Lydia gave me my first taste of MANGO....I have been a grower ever since!! Pam, you are now likely retired, however I worked until 73 so maybe not - take care. Sincerely, Evonne (retired Metlife)
