Brodhead – Sharon Lou Swenson (Rosheisen), age 77, passed away peacefully on April 6, 2020 at the Monroe Hospital.
She was born on March 7, 1943 to Lawrence and Helen Rosheisen (Gill).
She was the eldest of seven children. She was raised on a farm in Oakley, WI until moving to Brodhead when she was a freshman in high school.
She married Harold Swenson on January 7, 1962 at the Brodhead United Methodist Church. She enjoyed serving her community through the years by working at local restaurants, providing childcare, but most important was raising her family.
In her free time, she enjoyed sharing laughs and memories with her family and friends. She loved reading Louis L’Amour western novels, watching western films, playing cards and mastering any kind of puzzle book you could find.
She is survived by her husband Harold Swenson; three children, Stacie Hunt (Dean Burgess), Shani (Greg) Phillips and Brandon Swenson all of Brodhead; her grandchildren, Adam Hunt, Brogan Swenson, Justin Phillips, Jessica Drafall and seven great grandchildren; six brothers, John (Kris), Galen (Ruth), Loran (Chris), Randy (Jill), Scott (Doreen) and Brad (Beth) Rosheisen all of Brodhead and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and a daughter, Virginia Lou in 2002.
