Obituary for Carol Bronner

Carol Bronner, age 78, of Cresco, Iowa passed away surrounded by love from her husband and four children who adored her on Monday, October 14, 2019 at the Evans Memorial Home in Cresco.

Carol Ann Bronner was born on December 29, 1940 to Carl and Ruth (Ward) Frederickson in Blooming Prairie, Minnesota.  She was the youngest of three children.  Following her high school graduation in Rochester, she continued her education at the Rochester School of Nursing, graduating in 1961.  She started her nursing career at St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester.

Carol enjoyed dancing and met a young man while at the Terp in Austin, Minnesota.  On February 6, 1965 she married her dancing partner, Leonard Bronner in Rochester.  To this union four children were born.  They raised their family in rural Cresco, where Carol took on the additional role as farm wife.  She spent a number of years working at the Cresco Care Center as a nurse prior to her retirement.

She was a member of St Matthews Lutheran Church and the Rachel Circle.  She enjoyed helping piece together quilts with the other ladies of the church.  She was also a member of the Red Hat Society.

Her hobbies included reading Harlequin Romance novels, playing 500 with the neighborhood card club,  watching Christmas movies (“Home Alone” tops the list of favorites), putting together jigsaw puzzles, listening to polka music, baking cinnamon rolls and donuts, canning pickled beets, fixing her delicious baked chicken and sharing her laughter with others.  She was the kindest person you would ever meet and shared her lap with those she loved no matter how old they were.  She will be remembered for her ability to find the good in everyone. 

Survivors include her husband, Leonard of 54 years, children; Raymond F Bronner of Cresco, Gretchen (Scott) Koudelka of Hastings, MN, Rachel Houdek of Stewartville, MN and Ursula Gardner of Cresco, five grandchildren; Katelin Koudelka, Courtney Gardner, Jennifer Koudelka, Hunter and Gage Houdek, two sisters-in-law; Marcie Frederickson and Darlene Frederickson.

Carol is preceded in death by her parents, a granddaughter, Allie Houdek and her two brothers, Bob and Donnie Frederickson.
