Brooke Nicole  Ketchum
GILBERTSVILLE - Brooke Nicole Ketchum, 27, originally of Gilbertsville, died in the early morning hours of Oct. 4, 2019, as a result of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.
She was enrolled as a student at DCMO BOCES in the LPN program and was working part-time as a home health care aide. She had finally found a career path that she was passionate about as deep down inside, Brooke was a compassionate, caring, loving person who put everyone else's feelings before her own.
Brooke touched people's lives in many different ways. There were times when she shined and times when she struggled. She is remembered as being genuine, strong, full of laughter, silly, blunt and downright fun.
Ultimately, Brooke died in tragic and desperate circumstances. On behalf of Brooke's family, we acknowledge and show our appreciation to all of the people in this community who were her friends, those who shared their hearts and homes with her, the first responders and those that tried to help Brooke face and manage the many demons that impacted her life. You all tried your very best and should feel good about that.
Brooke was predeceased by several family members and is now in the arms of Mimi (grandmother); Papa (grandfather); Dad (Ron Ketchum); her first love, Kyle Seaman; and her son, Ryder Seaman. She leaves behind her two precious daughters, Hailee Jane Seaman (7) and Peyton Elizabeth Ketchum (3); her mother, Cindy Ketchum; sisters, Gwen Ketchum and Heather (Issac, Camden and Ellie) Ketchum Wilcox; several aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Arrangements are under the direction of C.H. Landers Funeral Chapel, 21 Main St. Sidney.
Calling hours will be from 2 to 4 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 9, followed by funeral services at 4 p.m. The family invites callers to the VFW for a reception following services.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a memorial fund for her daughters.
