Brooke "Brookelynn" Christina McPheters

Our Brooke was tragically taken from us on Friday, August 9, 2013. A young, vibrant young lady all of 15 years old killed by an out of control vehicle while walking home on a paved sidewalk with a close friend, Jordyn Durr, after shopping at the Dimond Mall.

Both girls participated in ROTC and would have been entering their sophomore year in high school.

Brooke was interested in being a pilot and traveling the world. She worked for Children's Lunchbox and was always with her mom helping with volunteering for a number of different causes. Brooke had that "smile" and the maturity of an older girl who could mingle with all, young and old. She had friends galore and would welcome anyone needing a home to her home. But definitely one of her best friends was her mom, Shanna. They did everything together and had one of those mother and daughter relationships we all so treasure. Brooke came from a tightknit family who enjoyed being together and doing things together. Always loving her Dad, Gary, and teasing her brother, Brody, Brooke was known for her zest for life and her heart of gold - always caring.

This fund is being set-up in memory of Brooke with donations to go to Brooke's favorite charities and a scholarship in Brooke's name for future students.

If you are unable to donate money, please consider donating time to a local nonprofit in the community (one being the Children's Lunchbox) on Brooke's behalf.

We miss you, Brooke. You were taken far too early from this world. But may you look down upon us and guide us to be as good of an individual as you.

It is difficult to imagine in almost two weeks Brooke will have been gone one year. We continue to be amazed and honored by awards she receives and how much the community has been effected by the loss of Brooke and Jordyn. We hope to see all of you on August 9th to stand up against drunk driving and remember Brooke and Jordyn. Any donations will be combined and donated to the Children's Lunchbox in Brooke's memory. We cannot express our sincere appreciation for the support the community has shown to us and the Durr family during this past year. We need to take a stand, to ensure no one else suffers this horrible experience of losing a loved by a preventable act! Thank you Gary, Shanna & Brody McPheters

One person can make a change. Brooke proved that. I was so moved at the AFP luncheon by her story I felt compelled to learn more about her and all the wonderful things she did in her short life. My heart goes out to her family and I hope they know how may lives she touched.
