OLD TOWN and PRESQUE ISLE - Cecelia Brasslett Fullenkamp, 91, died peacefully Sept. 27, 2010, at Presque Isle Rehab & Nursing Center. She was born Sept. 14, 1919, in Ashland, daughter of Joseph and Celina (Goslin) Brasslett. Cecelia was an avid and capable gardener, coaxing amazing results from flowers and vegetables alike. She loved to remodel and build, and was undaunted by outsized projects: jacking barns, laying concrete, surfacing flagstone, and directing everyone else in the process. In her last few years she has enjoyed teasing and sharing stories with the many loving staff members at the nursing home. She never lost her wit and sense of humor. She will be remembered by her daughters, Cecelia Rice of Panama City, Fla., and Valeria Peterson and her husband, David, of Stockholm; her grandchildren, Christina Peterson of Hazlet, N.J., Michael and his wife, Noretta Peterson, and their son, Lucas, of Veazie and Matthew Peterson and his girlfriend, Fritzi Schwab, and their son, Oskar, of Frankfurt, Germany; sisters-in-law, Clara Brasslett of Bradford, Glenna Brasslett of Hudson, Helen Brasslett of Glenburn and Frances Wiergersma of Kenduskeag; as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband, George Fullenkamp; brothers, Peter, Alphonse, Legori, Lee, Levi and David Brasslett; and sisters, Annie King, Ida Chaloux, Sarah Brasslett and Claudia Prue. Friends and family are invited to call 6-8 p.m. Thursday at Birmingham Funeral Home, 438 Main St., Old Town. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated 10 a.m. Friday at Resurrection Parish, Holy Family Church, Old Town. Interment will be immediately after the service at St. Joseph's Cemetery. All are invited to the parish hall for a light luncheon and continued fellowship after the services at the cemetery. Condolences may be left at

Sincere condolences to Cecelia's family. My family will always have the fondest of memories of this elegant lady. My ex-husband, Lonnie, did many construction projects for her and after his stroke, she showed him the utmost respect and kindness. My son, Dakota, mowed her lawn..under her direction, of course, and enjoyed many long conversations about life. We have spoken of her often since she left Winterport.

Sorry to hear of the passing of your mother.

I enjoyed the time your mother and i shared as roommates. It was my privilege to get to know her just a little.

Dear Vee and Family, We are so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mother. She was a wonderful lady and she made my Mother's time at Presque Isle Nursing Home much easier. I remember how they would talk and laugh together. She was an inspiration to all who knew her.
Please know we will keep you in our prayers.Carolyn Rackliffe Daughter of Beulah Lozito.

Dear Sis and Vee:
You must know, of course, how very sad I am that you have lost your Mom. Losing a parent is never easy but you have many people who love you and will help you get through this difficult period. The obituary was wonderful! Actually made me laugh when I thought about Aunt Celia and her building projects. I can see the house in Glenburn now with its never-ending construction and how she never felt intimidated by how massive the endeavor. Poor Uncle George! Great memories of our times together--ice skating parties, visits with you to John Bapst, camping (I still have trouble believing Aunt Celia would go camping). I remember particularly Thanksgiving dinner at Bo and Carolyn's and how pleased she seemed that she had been asked to join us. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs to you both and your family as well,

To the Fullenkamp(Brasslett) family;
Sincerest condolences to all of you. We are so sorry for your loss. I remember my mother talking about your family from many years back while living in Ashland. My mother is a Brasslett, the daughter of Paul Brasslett - brother of Joe. How well I remember my mom talking of the "good times" while she was young reminiscing of the days when her family and yours got together way back when! Even though we've never met, there is a bond that my family will always remember and respect with yours. May all of you find comfort in the thoughts and prayers from the many who loved Cecelia. May God bless all of you.
