By on November 28, 2012

Brooke Mauzy, 43, born in Lancaster, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and loving friend to everyone who knew her, passed away unexpectedly of a brain aneurysm Nov. 10, 2012 in Portland, Ore. We’re comforted to know she’s been welcomed into God’s presence and into the loving arms of her Grandma and Pa.

Brooke Renee Mauzy was born on May 20, 1969 to Audrey Harnish Miller of Bird-in-Hand and James M. Mauzy of the Outer Banks, N.C. She was the loving sister and best friend of Bronwynn Mauzy March of Lancaster.

Brooke graduated from Ephrata High School in 1987 and was employed with Warner-Lambert customer service and marketing before moving to Portland, Ore. In Portland, she was employed by Intel and was currently fulfilling her ambitions as Marketing Program Manager for Intel’s Medical & Industrial Segments. She enjoyed traveling on numerous business trips across the country. She had attended Bird-in-Hand United Methodist Church before moving to Portland.

Words cannot describe the loss of such a beautiful, caring, and loving woman. Brooke’s energy, determination, enthusiasm, and zest for everything in life was contagious. She would light up a room with her laughter, sense of humor and fun-loving nature. She was a free spirit who grasped everything life had to offer. She was an amazing mother and devoted her life to making a loving home for her daughter. Her priority was to constantly have great experiences with Kendyl by doing simple things like cooking and shopping together, day trips to Cannon Beach and Mt. Hood, and traveling to places like Hawaii and Disneyland. She enjoyed visiting her family and friends on the East Coast as often as possible. Her compassion and empathy for others extended not only to family and friends, but to raising funds for children’s Make-A-Wish Foundation, feeding the homeless, and animal rescue. Brooke’s spontaneous spirit and her exuberance and complete love of life endeared her to everyone. There is a new star shining brightly in Heaven with Brooke’s presence.

Brooke is survived by her parents; stepfather: Len Miller; stepmother: Barbara Mauzy; sister, Bronwynn, her husband Steve March and niece: Jordan; twelve-year old daughter: Kendyl; Kendyl’s father: Brett Jenkins and stepmother: Debbie and their daughter, Karley, all of Portland, Ore.; stepsister: Elizabeth Hanna; and stepbrother: Herb Mauzy and their families as well as Brooke’s extended family.

She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents: Mike and Jean Mauzy; and maternal grandparents: John and Blanche Harnish.

A Time of Sharing and Celebration will be scheduled in the near future and will be announced on Brooke’s Facebook page. In lieu of flowers, an account has been opened for those desiring to make monetary donations for her daughter, Kendyl. Checks can be addressed to "Brooke Mauzy Memorial Fund for Kendyl" and will be accepted at any Wells Fargo bank.
