Mary J. “Moose” Brookman, 43, passed away unexpectedly April 30, 2023. She was born in Akron, Ohio and remained a resident her whole life. She attended Central Hower High School then went on to earn an associates degree from Herzing University and a CDCA certification from Ohio University.
Mary was crushed by the recent passing of her mother; she was definitely a Momo’s girl. Mary was loved dearly and will be greatly missed by those who knew her. No matter what was going on in her life, she was always the first person you could call if you needed someone. Whether for some good laughs, or a shoulder to cry on, she impacted the people around her tremendously. Her smile could light up a whole room and her sense of humor was second to none. She felt like everyone in Akron, Ohio knew Moose, as she was a self-proclaimed legend, We All We Got !!!
