Averyll Bradshaw

May 21, 1927 ~ May 15, 2023 (age 95) 95 Years Old


Averyll Bradshaw, age 95, passed away on Monday, May 15, 2023.  She was the daughter of the late Harry Blackburn and Delmaree (Avery) Blackburn.  Her husband Charles predeceased her on February 4, 2022.

Averyll was born May 21, 1927 in Waterbury, CT.  She married Charles on August 30, 1952 and they spent their lives together in Wolcott and Prospect.  She was a member of the East Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Waterbury with whom she shared her love for Bible truths and faith and love for Jehovah God our creator for many decades.  She worked as a switchboard operator for Scoville Factories for many years.

Besides her love for people Averyll was known for her love of animals.  She often rode her horses Shawnee, Cheyenne, Rusty and Buffy on the streets of Prospect when she was a child – remembering fondly how the roads were not even paved. Many cats were lovingly cared for by Averyll – among them Tan Tip, Adam, Sunshine, Cyrus and most recently a rescued cat named Little Guy.
