Edward A. Brulinski Sr., 81, millworker, volunteer

Edward A. Brulinski Sr., a retired millworker and longtime volunteer, died Tuesday of cancer at Union Memorial Hospital. He was 81.

The 50-year Hampden resident was a millworker for 41 years at Western Electric Corp's Point Breeze plant in Baltimore. He retired in 1977.

Known as "Mr. Bo," he was a volunteer for more than 20 years at Keswick Multi-Care Center, the Little Sisters of the Poor and the order's St. Martin's Home for the Aged.

He was awarded the Keswick Patient Council Award in 1995. Three years later at a midnight Mass at Christmas, Cardinal William H. Keeler, the archbishop of the Baltimore Roman Catholic Archdiocese, recognized him for his work with the Little Sisters of the Poor and St. Martin's, as did the 1992 J.C. Penney Golden Rule Volunteer Finalist Award.

"Volunteering was his hobby and he was full time. Every day, he was either at Kewsick or the Little Sisters of the Poor," said a daughter, Nancy A. Brulinski of Hampden.

Born on Broadway in Fells Point, Mr. Brulinski attended Holy Rosary parochial school but left to help support his family. He was an Army infantryman during World War II.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 9 a.m. today at St. Thomas Aquinas Roman Catholic Church, Hickory Avenue and 37th Street.

A son, Francis J. Brulinski, died in 1993.

He is also survived by his wife, the former Helen Stawara, whom he married in 1936; a son, Edward A. Brulinski Jr., and another daughter, Mary Ann Cricchio, both of Baltimore; two brothers, Casimir Brulinski of Baltimore and Anthony Brulinski of Pennsylvania; and two grandsons.

Lynley Martin Fausnet, director of social services at a rehabilitation center, died of breast cancer Tuesday at Anne Arundel Medical Center. She was 30 and lived in Glen Burnie.

In 1995, Mrs. Fausnet began working as director of social services at Mariner North Arundel Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Glen Burnie. Previously, she was a social worker for the Maryland Department of Social Services foster care program.
