Obituary For Mark Robert Bronson

MADISON – Mark Robert Bronson, age 65, passed away at Kindred Hearts Memory Care on Wednesday, April 26, 2023. Mark was born on March 2, 1958 in Madison, WI to Donald and Ruth Bronson. He grew up in the Madison area but fell in love with a Monona girl, Mary Jo Morehouse. They were married on March 28, 1981 at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Monona. Mark started a work career painting at Stoughton Trailers and finished at Bou-Matic as a Lazer Jet Operator. In free time he enjoyed his weekly, men’s bowling league, in Evansville. Mark also was fond of camping, fishing, playing slot machines at the bowling alley, but most of all, his love for Elvis. His true love was his family, especially his grandkids. HIs grandkids were his everything.

Mark is survived by his wife of 42 years, Mary Jo; daughters, Donna (John) Schaefer, Lisa (Jose), Jessica (James) Tomasik, and Debbie Jo (Tyson Meier); grandchildren, Tyson, Dylan, Hannah, Connor, Shelby, and Stephanie; and siblings, Deborah (Bob) Skaggs, Maria (Scott) Berryman, and Chris Bronson.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

The family would like to thank Frances and Kali from My Choice. And a special thank you to the staff at Kindred Hearts, especially, Autumn, Jordan, and Davinia. They helped fill the last year and a half of his life with laughter, love and Elvis music. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Association -

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Michael M. | July 2020

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
