Michael Earl Brodie, 65, of Glenwood, Iowa passed away May 14, 2020 in Omaha, Nebraska. He was born December 14, 1954 in Des Moines, Iowa to Dale Steven and Phyllis Louise (Thomas) Brodie. The family moved to Omaha, Nebraska.
Mike was united in marriage to Kelly Jeanne Shreve on August 5, 1978 in Ames, Iowa. To this union their daughter Emily was born. During the early years of marriage the family moved to Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands then returned to Des Moines, Iowa and later to Sacramento, California where Mike was a Social Service Coordinator. His family then moved to Glenwood in 2003.
Mike loved spending time with his family and teaching his many talents including his love of music, art, history and cooking to his daughter and grandkids. On any given day you might find him on his tractor with one of the grandkids, in the garden with Kelly, at the family room table explaining art techniques to his granddaughters, in the kitchen teaching a grandkid how to make his signature pizza or out in the yard playing catch with his grandsons. He especially loved his world travels with Kelly and all of their adventures in Europe.

Survivors include his wife Kelly Brodie, daughter Emily Brodie (Nic Carnes), grandchildren Kaitlyn Carnes, Chris Carnes, Sophia Carnes, Isabelle Carnes, Nolan Carnes and Brodie Carnes all of Glenwood, Iowa; siblings Sharon, Butch and Lynn; in-laws Sterling and Ruth Shreve; Denny and Karen Thiel; extended relative and friends.
Michael received a life saving liver transplant in 2009 and the family would like to encourage others to be organ donors.
