Brooke Greenwald Cohen, 45, of Louisville, Ky., and formerly of Longboat Key, died Sept. 7.
A Louisville native, she attended the University of Arizona and was a graduate of Kentucky Country Day, the University of Louisville and Lesley College, where she received a master’s degree in special education.

In addition to her sons, Ms. Cohen is survived by her father, Murray Greenwald; brothers Brent and Bart Greenwald; and many nieces and nephews.
