Karmen Lynn Broer

September 22, 1975 — December 13, 2022


Karmen Lynn Brockmueller - Broer was born September 22, 1975, in Sioux Falls, SD. She came home to her loving parents November 5, 1975. She was such a loving little girl, and a tomboy at heart. She loved everyone, loved all cats, dogs, and most animals.


She attended school K-12 in Irene, SD, and later attended Mount Marty College in Yankton, SD, graduating in 2002. She started working at Children’s Care located in Sioux Falls, SD.


Karmen attended Calvary Lutheran Church in Irene, SD; where she was baptized and confirmed. She was a Sunday school teacher, part-time organist and instrumentalist in various programs and even designed the nursery room that is currently located at the church.


She settled in Yankton, SD in late 2011, working at Wal-Mart (Deli) 2012-2017 to which after three years she was named Deli Manager. She made tons of friends and loved serving people.

In 2018 she found the job she was passionate about at GNC. She loved that job so much she went into business for herself. She opened KB Supplemental in late 2020. Serving people and making friends along the way, every day, was something she was very good at. She had to close the store at the end of November of 2021 due to health issues.
