The following obituary appeared on Legacy.com:

Zoë Brooks (Klimley) died unexpectedly in the company of her family on January 2nd.

Zoë spent her early childhood in Bronxville, NY where she grew up with her triplet brothers Graham and Preston. From an early age, Zoë was blessed with an indefatigable spirit and joy for life. She was an excellent student and an accomplished athlete. Zoë matriculated to The Taft School in 2011.

While at Taft, Zoë was an Honor Roll student, acted as a Class Monitor for her dorm and was elected Co-President of her Class Committee in each eligible term. At the conclusion of her sophomore year, Zoë was elected by her peers to captain the Taft women's crew team and, following the school year, she competed for the Pelham Community Rowing Association. Zoë was radiant every day and in everything she did. Her enthusiasm was infectious and her smile dazzling.

In addition to her brothers, Zoë will be deeply missed by her parents, Laura and Brooks, surviving family members and all who knew her. A candle light vigil in honor of Zoë was held on January 5th in Bronxville, NY where 500 of her friends gathered to reflect on her life. A service of remembrance and celebration of Zoë's life will be held on Friday, January 10th at 11:00 am at the Reformed Church of Bronxville. In lieu of flowers, donations should be made to the "Zoë B. Klimley Scholarship Fund", which has been established at the Taft School.
