Ms. Brook grew up in Clarksville, VA and graduated from Chowan College in Murfreesboro, NC. Her career as a legal secretary for over 17 years was at a law firm in Richmond, VA, Air India in Washington, D.C., and at NFS (Nuclear Fuel Service) in Rockville, MD where she met Hank Brook.

Kisco, NY, McLean, VA, Bellevue, WA, Los Gatos, CA, and Carlsbad, CA. They moved back east to Durham, NC in 2006 and to Lorton, VA in 2015 to be closer to family. The family made many trips back to the east coast to visit as the boys were growing up. Over the years, Ms. Brook enjoyed gardening, golfing, cooking, and decorating. The Brooks often hosted big Super Bowl parties for friends to gather. She enjoyed her home but especially enjoyed her sons and was so happy to be a grandmother.
