Monica B. Ringer


                Monica B. Ringer, 62, passed away Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington after a courageous battle against cancer.

                She was born on April 17, 1957 in Burlington the daughter of Marcel and Noela (Aube) Brunet Sr.  She spent most of her life in the Vergennes area, and was the proud owner of Ringer’s Home Care until 2011. Monica dedicated her life to caring for others, whether it be caring for the elderly, sitting for all her nieces and nephews, or giving respite for her special ‘ladies’, she was constantly thinking of others before herself.   She also loved cooking and baking, which she generously shared with others.

Monica is survived by her Mother, Noela Brunet, special friend Ricky Premo, brothers Ron Brunet and friend Sue, Loren Brunet, and wife Kelly, Richard Brunet and wife Sherry, Marcel Brunet Jr., and wife Lisa, sisters Lisa Griner, and husband Craig, Debra McDurfee, Laurie Brunet and husband Ed, and Deanna Payne and husband Greg.  Many nieces and nephews who were just like her own children, and her God son Forrest Hentchel.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to all her friends and loved ones who cared for her during the last six months.  Laurie Brunet, you were her rock and her primary caregiver, we don’t know what we would have done without you there for her.  Also, Joanne Ringer, Cindy Ringer, and Paula Brunet, you were constantly there for her, asking nothing in return.

 Visiting hours will be held on Friday, May 31st at Brown-McClay Funeral Home in Vergennes from 9 to 10:45 a.m. A memorial service will be held 11 a.m. on Friday at St. Peters Catholic Church in Vergennes, followed by a luncheon at the American Legion in Vergennes. In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to Susan G. Komen Foundation.  To send online condolences to her family please visit
