Jerome ‘Jerry’ Broin, 84, Green Isle


Jerome “Jerry” Broin passed away at the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis on Thursday, Aug. 9.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the Green Isle Fire Hall at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 26.
He was born to Omer and Blanche (Langevin) Broin in Morgan on Feb. 21, 1934.  Jerry was an ambitious man in life, with a strong passion for his family.  There was nothing he loved more than rocking in his favorite rocker.  All the children and grandchildren have fond memories of their younger years on his lap rocking.  
Jerry was a 1954 graduate of Faribault High School.  The day after his graduation, Jerry joined the Navy where he spent four years as a medic working in the hospital at Ft. LaJune, N.C.  On Sept. 28, 1957, he married his wife of 60 years, Delores Uhlir, at the St. Lawrence Church in Faribault.  Jerry had a full career of owning and running several businesses.  He was a member of the American Legion, a very active former member of the Jaycees, and past member of the Green Isle Fire Department.  Jerry was a very caring and generous man helping many along the way when they fell upon hard times.  He always had a funny story and would greet you with a smile.  Jerry was a loving husband, the greatest father in the world, and a grandfather that thought the world of each of his grandchildren...they were his pride and joy.
Jerry is survived by his wife, Dee Broin of Green Isle; daughter, Susan Kreger (Bob Bliss) of Chaska; son, Steve “Herbie” (Kay) Broin of Cologne; grandchildren, Jeff (Natalie) Kreger, Lisa (Tony) Zaudtke, Matt (Erika) Kreger and Jesse Broin; and great-granddaughter, Avery Kreger.
Jerry is preceded in death by his parents; and 3 sisters, Harriet, Evonne and Lorraine.
The family will have a private interment.
