Rev. Lisabeth Brimm

May 5, 2024

Rev. Lisabeth Brimm passed away peacefully at McCarthy Care Center in East Sandwich, MA on Thursday, May 2, 2024.

Liz was the devoted life partner of 31 years to Carol M. Wester of Mattapoisett, MA.

Liz was born in Shawnee, OK to Preston and Lou Brimm, and had two beloved brothers, Patrick, and Michael, all of whom pre-deceased her. She is also pre-deceased by her much beloved Service Dog, and loving canine companion of 12 years, Ava.

Liz was a scholar, an accomplished woman, a self-made person, and always saw the best in everyone, and in every situation.

She graduated from Colorado College, having attended on a full academic Boettcher scholarship, where she was very active in social and women's rights causes. She also graduated from Andover Newton Yale Theological School, and took great pride in this, fulfilling a life-long dream of serving God, and helping others to enjoy God's presence and blessings.

Liz also had long and distinguished careers in software and hardware computer sales for major national companies, insurance sales, and served as a financial advisor for Edward Jones. She was the Protestant Chaplain for the Wrentham Developmental Center for several years, and proudly served people with intellectual disabilities. She most recently served as a Pulpit Supply minister at many area churches, and temporary pastor at the West Congregational Church in Taunton, which she enjoyed tremendously. She was also an active member of the Mattapoisett Congregational Church, and North Congregational Church in Middleborough.

Liz leaves behind her beloved companion Carol, as well as many dear friends, including Rev. Dale Thackery of Marion, Rev. Aimee Dion of Pocasset, and Havens Levitt of Albuquerque, New Mexico. She also leaves her extended family members, Barbara and Douglas Bingham of Raynham, Janice Wester and Grace Trivers of Chelmsford, Andrew, Molly, and Colby Januse of Fall River, Martha Januse and Zelia Costa of Taunton, Treesie Allen of Dallas, Texas, Michael Martin and Amy Peterson of Fairhaven, and Grace Resendes of New Bedford.

In honor of Liz, please perform an act of kindness, say a prayer, treasure the people you love, pet a dog, and see the miracle in every day. Donations may be kindly made to the any animal protective agency of your choice.

A Memorial Service will be held for Liz on Saturday, May 11th at 2PM in the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home for Funerals, 50 County Road, Mattapoisett. Friends are invited to arrive at the funeral home at 1:30 PM. For online guestbook, please visit
