Service Date: 11/18/2023

Brooke Amy (Hadley) Hassell, 47, of Mesa, AZ passed away surrounded by loved ones on November 11th, 2023 after suffering a hemorrhagic stroke in September, 2022 causing traumatic brain injury. Despite brain surgery and 14 months allowing opportunity for recovery, Brooke did not improve from an unresponsive state.

Brooke was born on September 23rd, 1976 to Joe and Lynda Hadley in Yucaipa, CA. She was a devoted member of Yucaipa’s Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 4th Ward.  She worked at the Harris’ Department Store in Redlands, CA.

In 1999, Brooke moved to Tempe, AZ to live with her brother and his family and in 2002, Brooke met Garrett Hassell at a New Year’s Eve gathering at the Tri-Stake Center near the Mesa Temple. They immediately hit it off and married soon after with their first child, Payson, born in 2004 and their second child, Austin, born in 2007.

Brooke dedicated her life to being a devoted wife and mother. Garrett worked very early hours to provide for the family, and Brooke ensured that the home and the kids were cared for. Brooke excelled at supporting Payson in singing and theatre, Austin in Cub Scouts and football. Brooke supported her family through the many passions and difficulties of their lives and instilled in her children, her strong dedication to their faith. She was incredibly close to both of her children and they both went to her for long chats. She was their best friend, their biggest cheer leader and confidant and she made it her mission to ensure their happiness.

As the kids grew, Brooke took on some part-time work such as housecleaning and as an Assistant to the Occupational Therapist at Mesa School District. She had recently returned to school and was starting the nursing program at Maricopa Community College in Scottsdale. Brooke was passionate about friendships. She loved to assign nicknames to those she connected with and her light-hearted, silly nature was always welcomed by anyone fortunate enough to cross paths with her. We will miss her greatly.

Brooke was predeceased by her mother, Lynda Lusby Hadley Grove; and her brothers, Jeff and Matt Hadley. She is survived by her husband Garrett Hassell; daughter, Payson Hassell; son, Austin Hassell; father, Joe Hadley; and her brother, Tom Hadley.
