Brooke was born October 27, 1944 in Roseburg, Ore. to Bernard and Lova Young and passed away at her home in Sisters, Ore. as did her husband, Henry L. Constable, on February 8, 2014. Henry (Lyt) Constable was born February 7, 1931, worked and retired as a stockbroker in New York City. Brooke and Henry were married in 1971.

An accomplished pianist, Brooke graduated from Roseburg Senior High in 1962, attended Scripps Institute as a music major, met and married Henry in New York City while awaiting admission to the Julliard School of Music. They have since lived alternately in New York City, Portland, Ore., and Sisters, Ore.

They are survived by one son, Cody, of New York City. Brooke leaves a brother, Bernard (Bernie) Young of Medford, Ore.; and cousins John Young of San Leandro, Calif., Eilzabeth Rowley of Bluffton, S.C., and Gary Karshner of Seattle, Wash.

The family suggests that donations in Brooke's memory be made to a favorite charity.
