MADISON--Donna Joy (Myrland) Brockmann LaMar, passed away on April 10, 2019, at All Saints Assisted Living in Madison. She was born in Black Earth on June 24, 1927, at the home of her grandmother Amelia Mickelson to Viola and Ralph Myrland. Donna was a graduate of Madison West High School and attended UW-Madison. She married Willard John Brockmann on June 4, 1947; they were happily married for 37 years. Fortunately for Donna, she found love again for the second time with Robert Dean LaMar, to whom she was married for 31 years.

Donna enjoyed dancing, traveling, and flying small planes with yearly trips to Las Vegas, Sundara Spa, and visiting family members throughout the states. She was employed at J.S. Kammer and Assoc. dental practice for 16 years as an office manager and meeting planner.

Donna is survived by her children, DeeAnn (Robert) Gill, Gary (Carol) Brockmann and Nancy (Bruce) Bradley; granddaughter, Amanda (Tyler) Bradley; brother, Dale (Marlys) Myrland; nephews, Jim (Mary) Myrland, Steve (Kelly) Myrland, Brian (Annie) Myrland, Jim (Val) Brockmann, and Randy (Jackie) Brockmann; stepchildren, Jeff (Wanda) LaMar, Cindy (Jon) Goerke, and Judy (Mike) LaMar; and step-grandchildren, James (Becka) Gill, Tiffany (Robert) Cheong, Travis LaMar, Brent LaMar, and Brad LaMar.

Donna is the joy and glue that holds the family together.

A Celebration of Life will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Good Friday April 19, 2019, at CRESS FUNERAL HOME, 6021 University Ave., Madison.

Memorials may be given to Agrace HospiceCare along with our gratitude for all of their care and support.

Dear Family, I want you to know how important Donna was to my husband when he started his dental practice. She helped organized his office and was loyal, faithful and hard working for sixteen years. His success was due in part to Donna's expertise in managing the office business always so cheerfully. Our whole family was grateful to Donna and I know how much she will be missed. My condolences to everyone.

I had the pleasure of knowing Donna for over 30 years, she was a wonderful grandmother. And to put is simply Donna was such a beautiful person. She was smart, kind, friendly, caring, funny, and I could go on and on. Every time I saw her she was always happy, and she always knew how to put a smile on my face! I know my grandfather thought the world of her...and so did I. Of my many fond memories, the best ones I have are going over to their house every Christmas. We played cards, games, laughed a lot, and caught up with family. A tradition I still miss and think of often. If I could say anything to them right now it would be thanks for being such a positive influence in my life for so long, and I will miss you much. You are no longer in our lives but you will always be in our hearts. Thank you for everything.

Brent LaMar
