Obituary

Alma Maria Brokaw, 82, of Kendricks Rd., Sherburne, NY, passed away Saturday, October 12, 2019 at her home.
She was born December 8, 1936 in Ramsey, NJ, a daughter of Sigmund and Mertyea Thorton Pauls and was a graduate of local schools. On February 5, 1955, Alma married Donald Brokaw in Wycoff, NJ. He predeceased her on ¬¬¬¬¬January 5, 2007. Alma was a switchboard operator for New Jersey Bell in Ridgewood, NJ, and later obtained her real estate broker’s license and was the owner of Alma Brokaw Realty. She loved her family and friends, traveling and going to casinos, which she considered her “happy place”. Her favorite time of the year was Thanksgiving and she loved hosting dinner every year. No one was allowed to touch or look at the turkey until it was done, thus, she was lovingly dubbed the “Turkey Boss”.
Surviving are her daughters, Donna Brokaw Cummings of Virginia; Catherine Brokaw of Rochester, NY; many loving grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, husband, son, Donald Brokaw, Jr., sister, Catherine Bush and brother, Jerry Pauls.
Graveside services will be held at 12 Noon on Friday, October 18, 2019 in the West Hill Cemetery, Sherburne.
Contributions in her memory may be made to the Chenango County S.P.C.A, 6160 County Rd. 32, Norwich, NY 13815; or the American Cancer Society at www.cancer.org.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Burgess & Tedesco Funeral Home, 10 S. Main St., Sherburne, NY.
