Broma Lou was born in Las Animas, Colorado. She attended school there. After graduation from public schools, she attended Stevens University and the University of Colorado. She majored in business education and later got a Master's in the same field. She taught first in Oregon, then Nederland and then at Fairview High School. She remained at Fairview until retirement. She was an avid and well-known bridge player for many years of playing bridge all over the U.S. and sometimes out of the country. Broma Lou Reed was the only woman in Colorado to attain the ranking of Grand Life Master in duplicate bridge, having won a National title and over 10,000 master points. Broma Lou dominated her sport in this region for many years with many partners until she retired in 2004. She will be remebered as a formidable competitor and gracious winner.
