Coleman Funeral Home of Oxford Brooke was born to Debbie Yancy Snider and Monroe Snider at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Brooke experienced medical challenges early in her life with a series of interventions and surgeries to correct cataracts. After a number of years of treatments, these medical issues were successfully resolved and in years to come, Brooke grew into an active and very talented young woman. She pursued artistic endeavors early in life and was active in music and drama throughout her education at Oxford High School. Upon graduation, she attended Mississippi State University, her mother’s alma mater, where she majored in Photography. It was her intention and dream to attend graduate school and teach art and photography. Shortly after college graduation, however, Brooke became ill with the initial stages of congestive heart failure. Years of treatment and progressively aggressive medical interventions were undertaken. Most recently, plans were made to address protocols in meeting requirements to have Brooke placed on a heart transplant list. Before those requirements could be met, however, Brooke became ill and was hospitalized on November 9, 2012, at Baptist Memorial Memphis. Despite the efforts of a large, dedicated, and compassionate team of medical professionals, Brooke passed away on December 13, 2012, three days after her 26th birthday. Throughout her life, with all of her medical issues, she remained positive and never gave up. She is survived by her loving parents, her Maternal Grandmother, Mrs. Faye Britt of Oxford, MS, her Paternal Grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Tom Snider of Hattiesburg, MS, three uncles, three aunts, and a number of cousins. Visitation will be held Saturday, December 15, 2012, 1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. at Coleman Funeral Home in Oxford, MS, with funeral services following at 3:00 p.m. in the Coleman Funeral Home Chapel. Bro. Johnny Flynt will officiate. Interment will be in the Oxford Memorial Cemetery. Coleman Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. Online condolences may be left at www.colemanfuneralhome.com
