Brooke Marie Overman
On June 5th, 2019, Brooke Marie Overman, beloved daughter of Jim and Pam Overman of Fredericksburg, Texas and sister of Blair Overman of Houston, Texas transitioned from this life to eternity. She was integral part of the life of her family and from the day Brooke was born, her smile could light up a room. She was thirty-five years old. She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Jess Lashlee and Marie Lashlee; and her paternal grandparents, Francis Overman and Alice Overman.
Living in Fredericksburg, Texas, near her parents at the time of her passing, Brooke lived her own life. Growing up everyone called her “Little Miss Sunshine: as her laughter would fill the room. Although Brooke was not dealt the easiest life, she made the best of it with her friends and especially her fur baby, Cuddles.
Brooke was born with a club foot and at age eleven, developed epilepsy. But even with her disabilities, she worked hard not to show she was hurting. She grew up in Lake Jackson, Texas and completed her education in 2001, graduating from Brazoswood High School. Brooke loved to have a great time with her friends, especially her boyfriend, Anthony. She and Anthony enjoyed spending time together going out for Mexican food which was Brooke’s favorite. Brooke loved to watch and go to San Antonio Spurs basketball games. She also enjoyed going to the quilt shop in Bandera with Mom.
Brooke will be remembered for her cowboy boots, love for life and the fact that she never met a stranger. She loved to spend time with her neighbors. She always knew what was going on in their lives and if they needed something, she would find a way to get it done.
Brooke’s life will be celebrated in Lake Jackson on July 1st, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Restwood Funeral Home in the Mausoleum located at 1038 W. Plantation, Clute, TX 77531. Please dress casually in cowboy boots and jeans if you are able. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you send donations to The Epilepsy Foundation of Texas or the SPCA of Brazoria County in memory of Brooke.
We cherish the time we had with Brooke and find comfort in knowing that she is now living in the truth of Revelation 21:4, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain for the old order of things has passed away.”
