Obituary for Brooklyn Nicole Smith

Brooklyn “Brookie” Nicole Smith, 6 years old, of Erlanger, Kentucky, passed away peacefully in her mother’s arms on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, with her family at her side. Brooklyn was a beautiful and strong little girl. Despite being diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) just 7 days after her 5th birthday, she retained the remarkable ability to smile through it all. She attended St. Joseph Academy in Walton, Kentucky, was an active member of the DIPG Collaborative, a member of the Lakemont Community, and the 2016 Hyde Park Ambassador. Brooklyn is survived by her parents, Nicholas and Brittany Smith; her grandparents, Phillip and Jill Smith, and Sandy and JP Smith; and a great-grandmother, Opal Smith. She will be greatly missed by her aunts and uncles, Scott and Emily Smith, Jayme and Grant Nolte, Matthew Smith, and Adam and Cassie Smith. Brooklyn will also be missed by her cousin, Jeffrey Smith. Brooklyn’s family would like to thank all those who have supported them throughout this journey. They especially would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center for the excellent care and attention that was shown to her. A visitation will take place on Monday, May 1, 2017 at Hebron Lutheran Church, 3140 Limaburg Road, Hebron, Kentucky 41048, from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Funeral services and burial will be private.
