Vera Ann Brosnahan

d. June 14, 2021

Vera Ann (Hugeback) Brosnahan, age 90, of Cooper City, FL passed away on June 14, 2021, with her family by her side. Vera was born in Carroll, IA, attended Kuemper Catholic High School, and received her degree from Marycrest College in Davenport, IA. She moved to Miami in 1950 to begin a career in the airline industry first as a teletype operator and then as a flight attendant for Pan American Airways and National Airlines. Throughout her life she continued her love of travel with adventures across the Americas and Europe. She was a devoted working-mother of four raising a family in Miami Lakes, FL and a second “Mom” to many. Her six grandchildren were her pride and joy, and she loved attending every game, concert, or exhibit. Vera ran a successful family-owned concrete business for over 60 years. She was an active member of Saint Mark Catholic Church and previously Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Church. 

Her family and friends remember her warm and loving personality, strength and grace, style, and class, as well as her wit and wisdom. Her collections of passport stamps and football ticket stubs are evidence that she lived life to the fullest.  

She is survived by her children Thomas Brosnahan; Daniel Brosnahan; David Brosnahan (Kelly), and Kathy Stamm (Ren); and loving grandchildren, Tyler, Savannah, and Hunter Stamm; and Ryan, Sean, & Erin Brosnahan; as well as her siblings, Romayne Hugeback of Azuza, CA, Linda Scott (Richard) of Cooper City, FL, and Susan Hurst (Dick) of Wilmington, NC; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, Matthew and Margaret Hugeback, and siblings, Inez Hugeback and Harvey Hugeback. 

The family will receive friends at T. M. Ralph Funeral Home Sawgrass/Sunrise, 371 NW 136th Ave, Sunrise, FL from 5pm to 8pm on Thursday, June 17.  A funeral mass will be held at Saint Mark Catholic Church, 5601 South Flamingo Road, Southwest Ranches, FL on Friday, June 18 at 10am followed by interment at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Cemetery, 1500 South State Road 7, North Lauderdale, FL.  The family would like to express our thanks for the outpouring of love and support.
