Notes for Lucille Irene McKeown:
Lucille Irene Brockly passed away March 31, 2013 at the Masonic Health Care Center in Dousman, WI. She was a resident at Masonic Village on the Square, Dousman, WI since June 2005.

Lucille was born March 19, 1922 to Chester and Minnie (Wunnenberg) McKeown in Yarmouth, Iowa. She married Donald R. Hedges on October 9, 1943 in Bloomington, IN. Together they ran the D&L Drive-In in Darien, WI from 1953 to 1966. They divorced in 1979. In 1983 she married Frank (Joe) Brockly of rural Beloit, WI.

Lucille got her private pilot’s license late in life and really loved flying. She also enjoyed “hangar talk” with other pilots at her retirement home. She encouraged all she met to decide what you want in life and go for it, or as she would say “Do it, do it!”

Preceded in death by Don, Joe and nephew Alan Thompson.

Lucille is survived by her sister, Evelyn Thompson, Burlington, IA; daughters Linda Hedges, Madison, WI, and Edna Hiltner and son-in-law Bill Hiltner, Shorewood, WI; grandchildren John Ehringer, Rhys Hiltner, Elsa Hiltner, grand-son-in-law Carl Shook, great grandson Alonzo Shook, and nephew Lee Thompson.

A celebration of Lucille’s life will be held at the Masonic Village on the Square, Dousman, WI on April 5 at 2:30 pm. Private burial service at Darien Cemetery.

Lucille’s family requests that in lieu of flowers that you enjoy pursuing your own goal – “Do it”.
