Brockman, Louise E.

PLATTEVILLE - Louise E. Brockman, age 91, of Platteville, passed away peacefully on Thursday, Oct. 14, 2021, at Epione Pavilion in Cuba City, Wis. She was born Feb. 2, 1930, in Potosi Township, Wis., the daughter of John and Isabella "Belle" (McKelvey) Kuster.

Louise attended Rockville School and graduated from Lancaster High School in 1947. She furthered her education at Wisconsin State College in Platteville and received a Bachelor of Science in education. She was united in marriage to Robert K. Brockman on June 25, 1952, at the Congregational Church in Lancaster. Louise then taught English at Cuba City High School and later became a stay-at-home mother to raise their children.

Louise worked side-by-side with her husband, Bob, with New York Life Insurance Company. She became a licensed agent in 1979, retired in 2018, and was inducted into the New York Life Hall of Fame in 2021. Louise was a devoted member of First English Lutheran Church and served on many committees. She was a volunteer and board member of the Platteville Thrift Shop, a charter member of the Quota Club and Jaycettes, and a member of the Parks and Recreation Committee and the Library Board. She also served on the Platteville Community Fund Board. Louise thoroughly enjoyed public service and philanthropy. She was the pillar of her family and lived her life dedicated to her family, faith, hard work, and the love of learning.

Surviving are her children, Brenda (Mike) Dalecki, Brad (Beth) Brockman, and Brooke (Bruce) Buch; her grandchildren, Abby (Josh) Robb, Aaron (Lisa) Brockman, Amy (Joe) Kilkus, Adam (Julie) Brockman, and Alex Dalecki; and her great-grandchildren, Carter, Tinley, Ford, Olivia, Margot, Ellis, Neil, Anna, and Ben.

In addition to her parents, Louise was preceded in death by her loving husband, Bob; and her two brothers, Carlyle (Velma) and Wendell Kuster.

I knew Louise and her husband Bob for as long as I can remember. Our connection was both personal and professional. Louise and Bob were so very kind and considerate. They were also lots of fun and down to earth. My sincere condolences to the entire family. Rest In Peace.
