Stanley J. Broughton



  Stanley J. Broughton, age 87, died at his home in Waseca on Wednesday, October 31, 2012.

   Born in Waseca on June 19, 1925, Stanley was the son of Severt and Minnie (Jameson) Broughton.  He was baptized at Grace Lutheran Church in Waseca in 1925 and was later confirmed there in 1940.  He attended Waseca Public Schools before entering the United States Army on September 20, 1943.  Stanley was trained in Coast Artillery at Camp Callan, CA, and embarked to active service on March 10, 1944.  He served in the Southwest Pacific Theatre and was on-board a ship that was sunk by a Japanese torpedo off the coast of Leyte on December 6, 1944.  He returned to the United States as a Corporal on January 7, 1946.  He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal after serving for a total of 28 months.  In 1947, Stanley went to work as a brakeman for the Chicago Northwestern Railroad.  He continued his career on the railroad until an injury prompted his retirement in 1977.  On July 5, 1978, Stanley married Phyllis Atkinson in Las Vegas.  He enjoyed woodworking, fishing, camping, trains, and rides in the country.  Stanley was a lifelong member of Grace Lutheran Church in Waseca, was a life member of the American Legion and VFW Post 1642, and was a member of United Transportation for 65 years.

 Stanley is survived by his wife Phyllis of Waseca; four children, Dennis Broughton, Julie (Terry) Ziemke, Pam (Butch) Bartelt, and Jan (Ahmed) Belal all of Waseca; four step-children, Richard (Joan) Iverson of Alexandria, Penny (David) Isaacson of Nerstrand, John (Lylia) Iverson of Medford, and Peggy Ann (Curtis) Radtke of Kenyon; seven grandchildren; fifteen step-grandchildren; and forty one great-grandchildren and step-great grandchildren.  He is also survived by two siblings, Glen Broughton of Owatonna and Milan (Noreen) Broughton of Bloomington; and several nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents; a great-granddaughter, Amyah Lambkins; two sisters-in-law, Helen Broughton and Wilma Berry; and four brothers-in-law, Lambert Berry and Leland, Arlo, and Walter Atkinson.  

 Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 3, 2012, at Grace Lutheran Church in Waseca, with Rev. Roger Haug officiating.  Visitation will be held for one hour before the service at the church.  Burial will follow at Woodville Cemetery in Waseca.  Kinder-Dennis Home for Funerals in Waseca is handling the arrangements.
