Sapphire Amber Brogley, Sauk City

We were all blessed with this precious little gem, Sapphire Amber Brogley, on Aug. 7, 2017. She was born the daughter of Sabrina Novosad of Sauk City and Alexander Brice Brogley of Baraboo.

Deeply missed by her “Nani” Debbie; grandpa Todd; uncle Jordan Zirzow of Baraboo; her “Grams” Amber Schuette of Sauk City; grandpa Henry Novosad of Little Chute; great-grandparents, Richard and Judy Brogley of Wisconsin Dells and Greg and Judy Novosad of Wausau; her “GG,” Debbie Fuchs of Sauk City; many other aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

No matter who or what was going on, she could brighten everyone’s day. Her energetic voice was so sweet; you were always wondering what she was trying to tell you. She loved to watch Elmo, and always made sure she was surrounded by the ones who loved her most. Her facial expressions were priceless and nobody will forget. We always had to make sure her best friend, Freida the Frog, was with her everywhere she went. We don’t think Sapphire knew how to be anything but happy and cheerful, even if she didn’t know why she was. From the moment she was born, not a soul could believe her astonishing strength. So far advanced for her age, some say she was too smart for life. Sapphire, in her short time with us, achieved what no one could ever have. She brought all different groups of great people together, setting differences aside for something greater. There’s good in everything in life; you just have to open your eyes and want to see it. Our gorgeous gem made sure we learned to forgive, appreciate, and spread the love we were so thankful she shared with us. Sapphire made sure to make a difference to everyone who was blessed enough to be in her presence.

Unfortunately Nov. 25, 2017, Sapphire was given her angel wings with which she will fly high and watch over all of us. A celebration of her life was held from noon until 5 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 3, at North Shore Restaurant, E11614 Tranquility Lane, Baraboo. Sapphire’s family asked if you plan to attend, to please wear vibrant colors as that is what Sapphire liked.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Sapphire’s name or mailed to: 1613 Lori Ct., Sauk City, WI 53583.
