Legal Assistant Had a Zest for Life

Legal Assistant Had a Zest for Life

I’m sharing an excerpt from a short, but wonderful and warm obituary for Florida legal assistant Brooke Robertson, who died suddenly on March 31, 2010:

Tiring of the cold winters, she moved to Miami eight years ago.

At the time of her death, Brooke was a legal assistant with the law firm of Broad and Cassel.

Lady Brooke had a zest for life, loved to travel, and was a loyal friend. She was involved with the Tower Club and was crowned Miss Tall Philadelphia in 1986.

Brooke is survived by her brother, Harold Robertson (Cynthia); nephew, Gregg Robertson; grandniece, Alexzandra Robertson; and her beloved dogs, Tiny and Sassy.

Funeral arrangements are pending.

People wishing to make a donation in memory of Brooke may do so to the animal shelter of their choice.

Tall Clubs International is not only a social organization for tall people, but also works hard “to send a tall message to a world dominated by goods and services designed for the, well basically, less vertically gifted” – including awarding college scholarships to tall students. The photo is from the Miss Tall Clubs International archives and identifies the gorgeous 6’3″ Robertson as the 1986 Miss Tower Club of Philadelphia.
Her friend, Donna-Louise Brookes, added this tribute to the Guest Book at, “Brooke will be so missed as she was a very bright light in this dark world…”
