Lucille J. Brosofske

Lucille J. Brosofske, 84, of Spotsylvania County passed away Tuesday, June 9, 2013, at Mary Washington Hospital.

"Lucy" is remembered as a woman of faith, musician, artist and loving mother. In her younger years she worked her way through college, playing the organ and piano at many venues across the Midwest. There she met her husband, George. They had two children and after six years of marriage, he passed away. Lucy chose not to remarry.

She received her masters degree in education and worked for 25 years as a third-grade teacher and reading coordinator at St. Joan of Arc schools in Lisle, Ill. She kept in touch with students who would often return to visit 'Mrs. B.' years after they left grade school. Her family was blessed with her move to Virginia in 2007 where she spent her last years watching her grandchildren grow.

Survivors include her son, Gregory Brosofske (Linda Wires); daughter Sondra Harry (Philip); grandchildren Nate Harry, Maria Brosofske and Kirstie Harry; brother Raymond Martis (Lorraine); and numerous other family members. She was preceded in death by her husband, George Brosofske.

Her funeral will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, July 15, at St. Mary Catholic Church, 1009 Stafford Ave., Fredericksburg, VA 22408. Interment will take place at a later date in Norwich, Conn., next to her husband, George.

Memorial donations may be made to St. Jude Catholic Church, 10725 Courthouse Road, Fredericksburg, VA 22407-7793.
