Heather Elleen Brooks

Brookside Funeral Home & Crematory

Heather Elleen Brooks, 48, passed away Saturday, November 23, 2019. She was born in Yakima, WA on April 13, 1971 to Michael Brooks and Corry Jo Stone. Heather graduated from West Valley High School in 1989, and then from the Radiologic Sciences Program at Yakima Valley Community College.

Heather loved working as a Sonographer at the Yakima Urology Associates; she was extremely devoted to her patients and everyone that worked with her. Heather had an artistic soul, any medium that she picked up came naturally to her. She enjoyed painting, interior design, and making a house feel truly like a home. Heather was hilarious. She enjoyed laughing, napping, playing games with her family, baking, and always had a healing touch. The holidays were always her favorite time of year; she brought magic into the annual Christmas trips to Leavenworth and would fill her home with “Christmas pretties.” She was an excellent storyteller and would retell the moment in a way that was both more touching and humorous.

Heather is survived by her two children Kyler Endicott and Madison Brooks, and her two brothers Doug and David Brooks. She is also survived by her only grandson Lincoln Brooks, her two parents, a loving collection of family and friends both near and far, and her best friend Jake the dog. Everyone who knew and met her were touched by her presence, and she took a little piece of each of us with her.

Memorial services will be held on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at Brookside Funeral Home (500 W. Prospect, Moxee, WA 98936) at 2:00 pm. To leave a message or memory for the family please go to www.brooksidefuneral.com. Brookside Funeral Home is caring for the family.

Heather was one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. I am so sorry for the loss you are all experiencing. Wishing you peace as you move forward.

I met Heather when I started working at YVC. She was the student assistant for Radiologic Sciences Program. I took over the office she occupied, where I still work today. She left the office because she was accepted into the program which then meant she would be my student. I was thrilled for her. She went on to Sonography after Radiology. She excelled at both. She was a friend and I am so sad she is gone. My deepest sympathies to Heather's family and her multitude of friends.
