Obituary For Brooke E. Failey-Ramirez

It is with great sorrow that we must announce the passing of Brooke E. Failey-Ramirez, on October 12, 2021. Brooke was born April 13, 1980 and led a life enriched by a love for languages. After spending a year in France after high school, she pursued a career immersed in the languages she found so intriguing. She graduated the Stony Brook University as a certified teacher and went on to get her Masters in French and Administration Certification. A teaching career ensued and she found herself teaching Italian and French at the middle school and high school level. Along the way she was blessed with a son, Pierson, born May 4, 2011, who became the center of her world. On October 13, 2018 she married the love of her life Roberto Ramirez, and along with Pierson, a close knit family was formed. Brooke tried to instill her passion for the arts in her students as well as her student teachers who she always welcomed into her classroom. She is survived by husband Roberto, son Pierson, stepson Nicolas, mother Marie, brother Colin and his wife Ayesha along with their kids Saira, Nylah and Aydin, and brother Vlad and his wife Lindsey and their son Mason. A viewing will be held Friday, October 15, 2021 from 3-7pm at the Brueggemann Funeral Home at 522 Larkfield Road in East Northport, NY. Funeral services will be held at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church on Vernon Valley Road in East Northport on Saturday, October 16, 2021 at 11am. In lieu of flowers the family welcomes donations to Pierson’s college fund which is being established in her honor. More details to follow.
