Brooklyn Marie Peters

BROWNFIELD —  Brooklyn Marie Peters, 5 years old, of Misty Lane, died on Jan. 24, 2013, at her home after a courageous battle with J.P.A., a form of brain cancer, which was diagnosed when she was ten months old. She has also been blind since she was 13 months old after a surgery to attempt to remove the tumor.

Brooklyn always had a smile on her face and never complained about anything. She was a very independent little girl. She loved music and she loved visiting her Aunt Ginny and Uncle Joe for coffee. She loved going for rides in the car with "Nana" and stopping at Grant's store for pickles and pepperoni, as well as going to the Depot St. Diner for her burger and fries. She also liked making bacon and Spaghettios at home. Above all, she loved spending time with her loving family and many, many friends. She touched everyone's life and will be sadly missed by anyone who ever met her.

Brooklyn is predeceased by her great-grandmother, Catherine Hinds, and her "Papa," Frank Warren.

Surviving are her mother, Stephanie Bokuniewicz of Brownfield; father, William Peters of Naples; grandmother, "Nana," Roseann Hinds of Brownfield; a sister, Baileigh Margeson of Brownfield; great-grandfather, "Pa," George Hinds of Cambridge, Mass.; grandfather, Daniel Bokuniewicz of Malden, Mass.; great-grandmother, Patricia Peters of Maryland; two uncles, Daniel Bokuniewicz, his fiancée Alanna Hurley, and her three children of Brownfield, and Kori Hinds and his girlfriend, Becky Tipton of Brownfield; great-aunt, Sharon Boyle of Mass.; special friends, Aunt Ginny, Uncle Joe and their daughters, Thara and Tessa, who is Brooklyn's Godmother; special friends, Charlie and Joann Rice; Stephanie's boyfriend, Jason Margeson; her "bff," Dave Collins, and her large loving extended family, friends and her beloved "boyfriends." Also her loving dogs: Max Paddy, Chomp Chomp, and Ginny and Joe's dog, Morgan, and their six "kitty"s.
