PRICE- Our beautiful daughter, sister, granddaughter, auntie, cousin and niece Brooke Kristine Tomadakis "Brookee" was taken away from us way to soon at the age of 22 on July 7, 2013. Brooke was born in Price on Nov. 25, 1990 to Terri Sandoval and John Tomadakis.
Brooke graduated from Carbon High Class of 2009. She enjoyed being with her family, friends and her very best friends, her sisters Brittany and Allison. Brooke had a very special place in her heart for her sweet nephews Brayden and Kyzer. She loved them as her own. She had a strong love for the outdoors. Brooke loved to dance and for those that knew her knew that she loved to shake her "Booty Joe". Brooke also loved her Gpa and Gma. She was a very happy person and never afraid to be the center of attention.
We will always remember her laughter, bright smile, and her crazy, goofy & bubbly personality. Nobody else could change a mood faster than Brooke. Brooke was very spontaneous and had a free spirit she loved road trips and mini vacations with her family.
