Modene Bruns

Modene Bruns, 95, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on June 7, 2015, at Hill Country Care Center in Junction.

Modene was born on March 13, 1920, in Junction to James Riley Fish and Ruby Bundick Fish. In December 1948, Modene married Murphy G. Bruns of La Grange, Texas and they celebrated 58 years together prior to his passing in 2006. Modene's career began as secretary to Judge M.E. Blackburn, Marvin Blackburn and M.C. Blackburn for a number of years until she went to work at Junction National Bank in 1939 where she retired after 44 years of service in 1986. Modene was a 50 year member of the Order of the Eastern Star and served a term as Grand Worthy Matron. Following Modene and Murphy's retirements, they moved to Tow, Texas, for 19 years before returning to Junction. They traveled across the U.S. visiting 44 states enjoying camping, fishing and friends. Modene also took pleasure in playing any kind of game with family and friends.

Those left to cherish her memory are daughter Sheila D'Spain and husband, Hubert, grandchildren Todd D'Spain and wife, Patti, Darla Rooke and husband, Kenny, and Toby D'Spain; great grandchildren Misty D'Spain, Shane D'Spain and wife, Ashley, Kayla Gregson and husband, Chad, Paige Sullivan and husband, Shan.
