We lost Brooke Jan. 11, 2022, when she died of unsuspected cardiac problems at her home in Los Angeles. She was a brilliant doctor, a loving friend, and an avid enthusiast for all things musical, athletic, and sophisticated.

Brooke came to Princeton from the Spence School in New York City and majored in biochemical sciences. Her enthusiastic membership in the Glee Club inspired a lifelong love of choral singing. 

After graduating cum laude, Brooke earned a medical degree from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. In 1979 she took her residency in neurology and psychiatry at UCLA, where she fell in love with the climate, the mountains, and the culture. She established her practice in pharmacological psychiatry in Santa Monica.

Brooke filled her life with music, studying cello, flute, and piano and singing in three different chorales. She attended the theater, ballet, and opera; took ballet class; and loved traveling, always with friends.

We will miss her happy wit, her broad smile, her tennis backhand, and that silvery laugh. Brooke is survived by her sister, Avril Barton Moore ’73; her nieces, Diana Moore ’06 and Juliet Moore ’09; her nephew, Thomas Moore; and her father, Thomas Barton.
