May 23, 1930 - May 23, 2020
Lois Virginia Kelso Brockman, age 90, originally from Fairfield, AL, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, May 23, 2020 (as a result of so many illnesses and complications it was a miracle she didn’t succumb while going about her daily activities). Lois was born in Fairfield, and lived there most of her life. She graduated from Fairfield High School in 1947. While in high school, Lois met Roy Brockman at Taylor’s Ferry Camp on the Warrior River, where their parents had adjacent cabins. For him, it was love at first sight. After high school, Lois attended the University of Montevallo, and Auburn University briefly, until Roy drove to campus, took her home and married her. They married in 1948, and stayed together 72 years until her passing. Lois worked at EBSCO Industries, the law firm of Trucks, Parsons, and Guyton, and later Parsons and Guyton, until her retirement, when she and Roy built a home at Taylor’s Ferry Camp and lived for the past 30 years. Lois was a lifelong Methodist and loved her church family and everyone God put in her path. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend who loved life and lived to serve others. She is preceded in death by her parents, Henry and Amelia Kelso. She is survived by her husband, Roy Brockman, children, Bob Brockman, Fred Brockman, and Ginny Allen (David Puleston); grandchildren Robbie Posey, Jonathan Brockman, Amanda Carmean, James Hamilton (Jen Hamilton), and Monty Allen (Jess Allen); and great grandchildren Brock Posey, Kameron Carmean, Nico Hamilton, Olivia Carmean, Alexis Allen, and Siera Hamilton; nieces Mellanie Hills (David) and Tracy Dismukes (Mike), who will love and miss her until being reunited in Heaven. Funeral service will be Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at Bessemer Brown Service Funeral Home in Bessemer, AL, with burial to be in Highland Memorial Gardens in Bessemer. The family will receive friends Thursday from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
