Muriel H. Brobst entered into eternal rest on December 24, 2020, after a short illness.

Born Muriel Louise Hineman on May 2, 1923, in Syracuse, New York, to parents Kenneth Hineman and Iva P. Button, she graduated from Syracuse University in 1943. She married Henry T. Brobst, M.D., on November 5, 1944. The couple moved to Roanoke in 1952, where Dr. Brobst established a medical practice in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Mrs. Brobst was the business manager and accountant for Dr. Brobst’s solo medical practice, and later for the partnership of Doctors Brobst and Kang, until Dr. Brobst’s retirement in 1992.

Mrs. Brobst is survived by a daughter, Karen L. Brobst, Chicago; a son, Jonathan T. Brobst, Mt. Pleasant, S.C.; a granddaughter, Shiera S. Malik, and two grandsons, Sati S. Malik and Samil S. Malik, all of Chicago. Mrs. Brobst was predeceased by her husband of 61 years, Henry T. Brobst, M.D., and by a grandson, Tombol S. Malik.

The family thanks the medical staff at Carillion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, especially to the loving nurses for the excellent communication they gave to the family during Mrs. Brobst’s illness. The family also thanks the rescue squad of the Roanoke Valley Emergency Services for their first-rate care.

The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the rescue squad of the Roanoke Valley Emergency Services at P. O Box 1830, Roanoke, Virginia 24008 or at https://www.roanokeems.org/.

I am sorry for your loss. I feel so blessed to have known Muriel and so thankful I got to spend time with her weekly as she allowed me the privilege of being her hairstylist. I’ll treasure our time together, conversations and the wisdom she shared with me. I miss her so. “say not in grief she is no more, but in thankfulness that she was.” Prayers for peace and strength during this difficult time of loss. Charlotte Stevens

So Sorry for the family of Muriel. I will miss her sense of humor, our every Saturday doing the crossword puzzle and drinking coffee. She was a good friend indeed. I will miss her for sure.
