From 1942 to 1946, she worked at Ostrander State Bank, first as a teller and later as assistant cashier. On April 10, 1946, she married Raymond Steven Broadwater in Beaver Township. They moved to their current farm in 1946. Mrs. Broadwater worked at Waters-Conley in Rochester from 1964 to 1967 and then at Control Data in Spring Grove until the spring of 1969. On July 1, 1970, she began working at First National Bank of Spring Valley and continued there until her retirement in 1993 as head teller. She was a member of Root River Church of the Brethren and enjoyed cooking, baking, flower and vegetable gardening, and church activities. Survivors include her husband; four sons, Lynn (Migon) of Rochester, Lloyd (Alethea) of Kellogg, Gary (Carol) of Spring Valley and Charles of Atlanta, Ga.; a daughter, Gayla Hall of Wabasha; 16 grandchildren; one great-grandchild; and a sister, Hazel (Milford) Berg of Ostrander.
