Waterbury:Violet Rose Brett's journey through life began on February 26th 1932 in the parish of Kingston Jamaica.

She was the daughter of the late George and Lurline Pitkin being the first of 3 children. Her siblings now deceased were Sydney and Gloria. Violet's first years of schooling were in Kingston. A few years later she went to London England and entered into a nursing program, but shortly after realized that the mere site of blood was a little too much for her to handle and as a result dropped out. It was while living in England that she met the love of her life, her husband to be, Lloyd George Brett.

The marriage union produced 4 children: Michael Brett (Prospect), Paul Brett (Waterbury), Carole Brett (Deceased), and Janet Brett- Byfield. (Waterbury).
Violet lived in England for a number of years before moving back to Jamaica, and from Kingston moved to the country to the parish of St Ann and resided there with her Husband Lloyd until his passing in 1994. She then decided to migrate to the United States to be near her children, and lived here in Connecticut until her passing on March 15th 2019.

Violet loved life. She loved her children. She also loved her husband so much that when asked if she would ever remarry after his death she said firmly NO as she would never find another man like him. She developed a love relationship with the Lord which resulted in her baptism into the Shalom Seventh Day Adventist church where attended regularly until her disease prevented her from doing so.

Violet was a caring individual , quiet at times, and some may say she was prim and proper as at times her Jamaican Dialect could be heard being replaced by the English accent of London England.

Things became difficult and frustrating when Violet started losing her memory almost 11 years ago. After a long battle with Alzheimer's the good Lord allowed her to sleep in Jesus.

Violet leaves behind to cherish her memory 3 children, 8 grand –children, along with other relatives and friends. She will be missed.
