Brooklynn Dawn Eggers, daughter of Kenneth Leroy Stewart and Crystal Lynn (Eggers) Eakes was born July 28, 2006 in Des Moines, IA and passed from this life, tragically on Thursday, May 27, 2021 at the scene of an accident near Murray, IA at young age of 14 years.
Brooklynn grew up in Murray, IA and was attending Murray High School. She loved her large family and many brothers and sisters. She was always goofing with them and having fun. Brooklynn was always willing to help, even when she wasn’t much help. She tried all the different sports growing up, volleyball, softball and basketball. She was a member of the Murray FFA. She loved animals of all kinds and was always asking her parents to get her a different pet. Brooklynn loved being a teenager, playing in the mud with the boys, her music, taking selfies, hanging out with friends and being on all the social media. She was always with her boyfriend, Rylon, who also passed in the tragic accident, along with their friend, Gavin. They are all too young to be taken from us.
Brooklynn was preceded in death by a cousin, Ashlynn Marie Richards, and many loving grandparents.
