Nan Monk

Nan Brockway Monk, 88, passed away on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at Rennes Health Center-West in Peshtigo, where she had lived since 2009.

The former Nan Helen Brockway was born on Feb. 23, 1924 in Waukesha to Dr. Arthur W. and Beulah (Vail) Brockway. She graduated from Waukesha High School in 1941 and Carroll University in 1945 with a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and chemistry.

She worked in the lab at Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago as a Medical Technologist and research biochemist where she earned her MS in biochemistry. In 1948 she married Dr. Robert S. Monk and began her most rewarding job of raising six children, including two sets of twins. In 1972 she returned to the workforce as a Medical Technologist for Waukesha Memorial Hospital, retiring in 1988.

She will best be remembered as a preservationist and historian, devoting much of her time to preserving treasures of the past. Her community-minded spirit touched many lives through her years of service to AAUW, Planned Parenthood, the Waukesha Landmarks Commission, the Wisconsin Historical Society and the Waukesha County Historical Society. She served as a founding member, State President and International Vice-President of Questers, International and will always be known for her extensive “What Is It?” collection of historic American objects. Her passion for art and genealogy fueled her memorable travels around the globe, yet nothing was dearer to her than her family and friends at home. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will always be remembered for her love of antiques, nature and art as well as her gracious and artistic sense of style and design.

She is survived by six children, Judy (Alan) Reid of Racine, Robert (Vicki) Monk of LaCrosse, Linda (John Vogel) Farina and Stuart Monk, both of Waukesha, Debbie (Robert) Kroll of Marinette and Steven Monk of Rochester, Minn. She is further survived by her nine grandchildren; four great-grandchildren and one soon to arrive.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Robert and David Brockway; a daughter-in-law, Ann Monk and a granddaughter, Madeline Reid.

A memorial visitation will be held at 12 p.m. noon on Saturday, Feb. 23 at First United Methodist Church in Waukesha, followed by a memorial service at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name will be made to the Waukesha County Historical Society, Carroll University or the Hope Center. Hansen-Onion-Martell Funeral Home, Marinette is assisting the family.
