I will never forget you Mrs. Broenneke . You lived a great life and glad got to watch a lot of us neighborhood kids grow up. Hung around with Kathleen and Donna growing up and enjoyed your car rides to Evergreen Plaza just to do a little bit of shopping. You loved that mall even though we had several malls close by the house. I will never forget you and your family as we have many wonderful Parkside years and memories together. I remember fondly Grandma Hennessy living with all of you and Spooky the dog , who would scare the crap out of me. Lol. Enjoy heavenly paradise and may you be welcomed by family and all the Parkside neighbors when you get there!

Dorothy was a sweet neighbor who will be missed by many. She was so lucky to have lived out her days in her home, always surrounded by her loved ones. She did a fantastic job raising her children to be kind, caring adults. May she rest peacefully. Praying for her family, may you all find comfort in the many memories you’ve created with her over the years.

Our condolences,
The Haim Family (5711)
