Brooke Ashley Mostowy

Brooke Ashley Mostowy, age 21, of Tipton passed away Wednesday, May 2, 2018. She was born March 11, 1997 in Ypsilanti, the daughter of Timothy Blake and Sandra Marie (Brady) Mostowy.

Brooke graduated from Tecumseh High School in 2015. In March of 2016, she joined the Michigan National Guard, where she became a Chemical Systems Specialist after receiving basic training at Fort Sill, Okla., and Advanced Individual Training at Ft. Lee, Va. While off-duty, she worked at the Sprint store in Adrian and Tecumseh, earning Employee of the Month Honors several times.

In addition to her loving parents, she is survived by two brothers, Timothy Blake Mostowy, Jr. of Tipton and Brent Mostowy of Kalamazoo; maternal grandparents, Robert and Carol Brady of Tipton; paternal grandmother Joey Ann Mostowy of Butler, Pa.; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Brooke was preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Michael Mostowy.

Brooke was loved by everyone who knew her. Her legacy, without doubt, was her enormous heart. She touched so many lives with her kind soul and generous nature. Her capacity to love and help others was endless, and was her gift to everyone lucky enough to have known her. 

Brooke fought a long and courageous battle with depression. Her family would like everyone to honor her last request, which was, “Please live your best life for me, I love you so much.”

In lieu of flowers, we are sure that Brooke would love for memorial contributions be made in her honor to the Lenawee County Mental Health Authority at 1040 S. Winter St. in Adrian, or via their website:

Visitation for Brooke was held on Monday, May 7, 2018 from 4-7 p.m. at the Tecumseh Chapel of Handler Funeral Home. A memorial service followed at 7 p.m. with Pastor Drew Hart officiating. Military honors under the auspices of American Legion Post #34, VFW Post #4187 and the Michigan National Guard were held after the service.  Condolences may be made to the family at
