Citizen: 10th February 1977: Former landlady of the old Hope Inn, Barton Street. Mrs Dorothy Kate Brint, has died in hospital, aged 80. Mrs Brint spent 77 years in two Gloucester pubs, and her duties behind the bar kept her so busy that for 30 years she went without a holiday. She was born at the Windmill Inn, Windmill Parade and a pub was her home until she retired in September 1973. She was at the Windmill – her mother, Mrs Kate Abbott, was there for 37 years – and she lived at the Hope Inn for 40 years. Mrs Brint became licensee of the Hope Inn when her mother died about 32 years ago. Her husband died soon after her mother and she was helped at the pub by her nephew, Mr John Davis, her son Rolf, and her daughter Joyce. After her retirement, she spent some time in Australia visiting her grandchild. She leaves a son and five grandchildren.
