Edward "Ed" Peter Brune

Edward Peter Brune, age 95, of Rich Fountain, fortified with the sacraments of Holy Mother Church on October 3, 2016, at St. Joseph's Bluffs in Jefferson City.

Ed was born July 11, 1921, the oldest of three children of John and Theresa (Koerber) Brune. He was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved wife of 69 years, Luella (Brandt) Brune, and his brother-in-law, Clarence V. Mueller.

After growing up on his family's farm, Ed went to St. Louis to find work and there met the love of his life, Luella. They were married in St. Louis on October 10, 1940. During WW II Ed started training as a pilot in the United States Army Air Corps, but because the war was coming to an end, he finished his tour of duty stateside.

Ed loved music and both played in a band and taught guitar. He worked as a cost estimator for military jet planes for McDonnell Douglas Aircraft and retired in 1984 to Rich Fountain, where both he and Luella had grown up. They traveled extensively and enjoyed being with family, fishing and gardening, but always found time to be active in their parish. Ed was on the Sacred Heart Church redecorating committee, gave church tours and was one of the Grand Marshals in the Sacred Heart 175th Anniversary parade. He also gave talks to the parish school children about WW II and military airplanes.

Ed is survived by his four children; Linda (Dale) Spaulding, Lois (George) Holbrook, Laverne Keating and Dale Brune; his four grandchildren, Jennifer Frazer, Shelly Swart, Kevin Keating, and Carey Gough; his eight great grandchildren; Justin, Matthew and Stephen Frazer, Hannah and Cody Gough, Madison and Gavin Swart, and Alyssa Ewing. He is survived by one sister, Esther Mueller and one brother, Herbert (Dorothy) Brune. He was also a beloved brother-in-law, uncle and cousin.

Visitation will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, at Morton Chapel in Linn. A Rosary Service will be held at 3:45 p.m. and an American Legion Service at 7:00 p.m.
