Brooke Michelle Nelson

November 1, 1982 ~ April 26, 2020 (age 37)


On Sunday, April 26, 2020, loving daughter and mother, Brooke Michelle Nelson, peacefully gained her angel wings at the young age of 37 in Waskom, TX.  Brooke was born in Shreveport, LA on November 1, 1982. She was a daddy’s girl and held his heart from day one. She graduated Elysian Fields High School in 2000 and later became a CMA through Ayers College, but her proudest accomplishment was her red-headed sweetheart, her daughter Lailah. Brooke touched many lives with her charismatic smile, beautiful eyes, and devoted soul. She had a passion for collecting ceramic churches and crosses, and always made sure they were handled with gentle hands. Her favorite colors were pink and black, and she sure did love her diet coke and her mascara! Brooke had a daughter-like bond with her aunt Wanda that was unbreakable. She was adored by her close cousins, aunts, uncles and many friends. Brooke is survived by her father, William J. Nelson Jr. of Waskom, TX and her daughter, Lailah Katherine Spearman of Royal, AR.   She is preceded in death by her brother, Brandon Hartman; grandparents William J. Nelson Sr. and Catherine Ruby Nelson; grandparents Gordon Stanley and Agnes Stanley.  We ask that you celebrate Brooke’s life in spirit with warm thoughts and prayers for the family.
