Elsie Kulzer was born November 3, 1932 in Spring Hill, Minnesota to Roman C. and Adlinde (Terhaar) Kulzer. She was united in marriage to Robert Bromenshenkel on October 6, 1953 at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Sauk Centre. Robert and Elsie farmed southwest of Sauk Centre and retired in 1983.

After retiring from dairy farming, Elsie and Robert started doing mission work. They made five trips to Mexico as part of a mission group going door to door handing out Bibles and food. Thereafter for 11 years, Robert and Elsie spent the winters near Claxton, Georgia working with the Glenmary Missions. After the passing of her husband, Elsie continued mission work and went on three trips to Kenya. Elsie’s greatest joys in her retirement were baking bread for family and friends and sharing the love of God with like-minded people. Elsie firmly believed no-one is ever too old to work for God.

Survivors include her children, Susan (Ken) Fix of New Ulm, Geralyn “Geri” (Jeff) Nienaber of Sauk Centre, Norbert (Maggie) Bromenshenkel of Horace, North Dakota, and Herbert (Jana) Bromenshenkel of Bemidji; daughter-in-law, Theresa Bromenshenkel of Rochester; eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren; brother and sisters, Janet Kulzer, Roman (Mary) Kulzer, and Marina (George) Blackwood.

Elsie was preceded in death by her husband, Robert in 2007; and son, Walter in 1995.
