Barbara Jean (Brouker) Lamy, 88, passed peacefully, embraced by the abundant affection of her family on December 27, 2021. She is desperately missed and lovingly remembered by her children Patricia Donini of Pennsylvania, Nancy and Mark Blum of Watertown, Catherine and David Pompei of Georgia, Jacqueline and Richard Clukey of Terryville, Karen Lamy Mangine and Karen Leonard of Torrington, Kristin and Edward Droste of New Hampshire, and Rebecca and William Thompson V of Burlington. Barbara shared fond childhood stories of the care she received at Newington Children’s Hospital where she learned to sew, knit, and cook. Memories of her Christmas gingerbread people and her blue-ribbon blueberry pie bring smiles to the faces of her grandchildren Steve and Alice Lowe, Jeff, Greg, and Alex Blum, Aaron and Adrian Pompei, Justin Clukey, Rachel Mane, Jessica Waters, Sophie Mangine, Lee, Kristian, and Hedi Droste, and Alex and Zack Thompson. Barbara expressed her creativity and joy of life in gardening and canning food, crocheting, and sharing these gifts with her eleven great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. After graduating from Bristol High School in 1951 Barbara became a licensed practical nurse and used her skills for a lifetime of caring for her patients, family, and friends. Barbara grew up in a time when the ice man came around with blocks for the ice box, and neighborhood kids gathered for pickup baseball games. She was the daughter of the late Robert and Charlotte (Hempstead) Brouker. Her life demonstrated the value of family, so she was grateful to have time to say goodbye to many of her siblings. She is survived by Charlene Bechard and Donna Cook of Plainville, Raymond Brouker and Ruth Rideout of Terryville, and Shirley Ford of Arizona. She was predeceased by George, Allyn, Roger, Donald and Dorothy Brouker, and Lydia Lamy. As she prepared for her passing, Barbara looked forward to reuniting with her husband George L. Lamy and son George R. Lamy who predeceased her. Calling hours will be Thursday, 6:00 pm to 8:00 p.m. at Scott Funeral Home, 169 Main St., Terryville. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated Friday, 10:00 a.m. at the Immaculate Conception Church, Terryville. Burial will follow in Saint Mary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Connecticut Children’s Hospital. www.scottfuneralhomeinc.com
