  • Brigette was my first bestie. We watched the pop hits videos on tv together by phone and loved Michael Jackson. Especially the Thriller video! We’d vote on the phone lines for MJ to win. We had a clothing design biz that we cultivated for our future. We grew apart when I moved in grade 8 to garden city but I’ll always cherish her friendship and gorgeous smile. My love and prayers to her mom Barbara (thank you for having me at your home in elementary school) and Eddie her very cool big brother and her sis Tricia. I recall you all fondly. Big hugs.

May angels wrap their arms around her now. - Posted by: Anethea Kauffeldt Marshall (Childhood friend) on: Jun 03, 2023

  • To Brigette‘s family, my sincere thoughts and prayers be with you all at this sad time in the loss of Brigette. She was a wonderful person who I got to know when visiting cousins on Chamberland in Winnipeg, MB. As kids we all played, laughed maybe cried together, but not sure about that crying part as we just had an awesome time together all the time. Her smile was the best and her friendship will be missed. Cherish all the memories as I have as well. God Bless all and peace be with you as she will always be a peaceful angel forever in everyone’s hearts. 🙏🏼💐😥💝 Sincere regards, Fran, Kerry, Ian, & Tyson Mickey - Posted by: Fran(ces) Kowalski-Mickey (Friend) on: Jun 03, 2023

  • We were heart broken to hear of the sudden loss of Brigette! Brigette had the biggest smile and unforgettable laugh! We had a shared love for Michael Jackson, disco hits, dinners at A&W by the fire place and slurpees. Countless moments big and small that have me laughing through the tears. A sister by heart, who was fearless and funny! My only comfort is she is with her beloved Derm.🙏 Our heartfelt condolences to Mrs. Jones, Eddie, and Tricia.
