Irma Edith Brohart


On Wednesday, May 24, 2023 Irma Edith Brohart got her wings and went to walk with the angels. She passed away peacefully at the Peterborough Regional Health Center in her 93rd year.

Born in Brudenell on February 6, 1931, her dream was to get married and have children. She was the heart of her family’s lives.

Irma was deeply loved and respected for her gentle, kind, compassionate disposition and strong will for her beliefs and values. She is predeceased by her loving husband, Norman. Irma was the beautiful daughter of Samuel Schroeder and Edith Schroeder (Musclow).

She is the treasured mom of Linda Marshall, Ron Brohart, Karen Brohart and Beverly Rich (Darrell).

Irma was the cherished Grandmother of Brian Marshall (Cecilia), Wendy Marshall (Ryan), Joshua Brohart (Keitha), Jeremy Brohart, and Jessica Rich (Scott). She was Great Grandmother of Victoria Marshall, Ryan Marshall, Tyler Marshall, Kyrie Marshall, Ophelia Brohart, Landon Brohart, Brynley Rich Compeau and Lochlan Rich Compeau. She was also an endeared, proud Great Great Grandmother of Laya Marshall and Olivia Marshall. Irma is fondly remembered by her Godchild, Brian Brohart.

Held dear to Irma’s heart is her only remaining sister, Ruby Andrews of Stittsville, Ontario. She is predeceased by her brother, Basil Schroeder and sisters, Beatrice Carleton, Emily Zadow and June Charlebois. Lovingly remembered by many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
