KEARNEY – Phyllis Brockmoller, 92, passed away April 18, 2022 at Brookestone Gardens in Kearney, Nebraska.
Phyllis was born December 23, 1929, at Ogallala, the daughter of Faye and Iva (Ficke) Gemmell. She grew up on a farm northwest of Ogallala and graduated from Ogallala High School in 1947. After graduation she worked in the Keith County Superintendent and Clerk offices. On June 9, 1948, she married Donald W. Brockmoller at the Methodist Church in Ogallala. They celebrated 54 years of marriage before Don’s death on August 12, 2002. She was a lifetime member of United Methodist Church.
Once their four children were in school, Phyllis returned to work in both the County Clerk and Judge offices, retiring in 1994. Following retirement, she worked part-time at various jobs in the Ogallala community. She enjoyed meeting people, visiting, word puzzles, quilting, gardening, and was always ready for a “grandkid fix” whenever the opportunity arose. She had a servant’s heart in raising her children, caring for her mother and her loving husband, Don. Her kindness and hospitality touched many lives over the years.
She is survived by Daughter-in-law Sandy Brockmoller of North Platte, NE; two daughters; Cindy Lungrin (Bob), of Kearney, NE; Cathy Logan (Lonnie), of Grand Island, NE and son Kim Brockmoller (Darla), of Lexington, NE, eight grandchildren, Justin Brockmoller, Jerod Brockmoller, Jeff Lungrin, Joel Lungrin, Meagan Carpenter, Cole Brockmoller, Tiffany Bolhouse, and Ashley Stevens; and eighteen great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Don; son, Gerry; brothers, Fay Gemmell, Jack Gemmell and sister, Carol Olson.
