Kathy Brockman and 2019 Excellence Award winner Nona Graves.
It is with very heavy hearts that Council board and staff share the passing of long-time board member, Kathy Brockman, on July 26, 2020.
Kathy first joined the Council board in 1985. She most recently served as treasurer and chairperson on the Finance Committee. She also served on the awards and fund development committees, and as a member of the gratitude work group.
“Kathy was a talented and accomplished woman,” says Chris Richmond, Council board chair. “What I will remember most is the humbleness of spirit with which she approached everything. She never seemed to want to be in the spotlight and considered it a privilege just to be asked to serve.”
Kathy will be remembered for her selflessness, dedication and a willingness to do whatever she could to make a difference. She loved attending her blind bowling league and watching the Brewers play.
Her husband, Pat, said she was able to enjoy a last game of her beloved Brewers and passed without pain. He wants everyone to know how much Kathy loved serving on the board and how adamantly she believed in the Council’s mission.
We offer sincerest condolences to Kathy’s family and friends, and we are grateful for all the ways in which Kathy served people across Wisconsin who are blind or visually impaired.
