Violet Irene Brockhoff, 93, of Arlington

Violet Irene Brockhoff, 93, of Arlington, went to meet her Lord on Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2016, at the Arlington Good Samaritan Center.
Funeral services were held Friday, Aug. 5, at Zion Lutheran Church in Green Isle Township with the Rev. Erick Rapp officiating. Julie Schwartz was the organist. Congregational hymns were “Amazing Grace,” “I’m But a Stranger Here” and “I Know That My Redeemer Lives.”
Violet Irene Brockhoff was born June 17, 1923, in Green Isle, to Edward H. and Alvina (Lucht) Bullert. She was baptized July 8, 1923, and confirmed in her faith as a youth on May 9, 1937, both at Zion Lutheran Church, Green Isle Township, by the Rev. Karl Rueter. She was educated in Arlington-Green Isle schools and graduated in 1941.
On Aug. 12, 1945, she was united in marriage to Marvin Brockhoff at Zion Lutheran Church in Green Isle Township. After their marriage, they lived in Green Isle. Their marriage was blessed with two sons, Merlin and Virgil. They shared 62 years of marriage before Mr. Brockhoff died on Nov. 18, 2007.
Mrs. Brockhoff was a lifelong member of Zion Lutheran Church, Green Isle Township, and was a charter member of its Ladies Aid. She also served as the church organist for over 50 years. She also was a member of the Green Isle American Legion Auxiliary. In her later years, she was a member of the Green Isle Senior Club. In her role as a board member for Region 9, she was instrumental in brining senior meals to Green Isle.
Mrs. Brockhoff enjoyed sewing, quilting, playing piano and organ, gardening, and singing and playing with the Jolly Kitchen Band, of which she was a co-founder. She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren when the whole family would gather together.
When she needed assistance with her daily care, she moved to Golden Hearts Assisted Living in Arlington and, in July 2015, to the Arlington Good Samaritan Center.
She is survived by her son, Merlin (Katherine) Brockhoff of Arlington; grandchildren, James (Tracy) Brockhoff of Arlington, Jason (Tiffany) Brockhoff of Arlington, Kerri Brockhoff of Gaylord, Eric (Brooke) Brockhoff of Prior Lake, Timothy (Kristine) Brockhoff of Lonsdale, Erin (Peter) Keller of Fridley and Miranda (Mike) Blaschko of Apple Valley; great-grandchildren, Tyler Brockhoff, Riley Hinderscheid, Anthony Guevara, Kendra Guevara, Teagan Hinderscheid, Sommer Brockhoff, Noah Brockhoff, Irelin Brockhoff, Kealy Brockhoff, Lily Brockhoff, Layla Blaschko, Landon Blaschko and Brady Brockhoff; brother-in-law and sisters-in-law, Earl and Dorothy Brockhoff and Elaine Brockhoff; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
