Seems to be a ton of pancreatic cancer in the area. What's going on with the stuff? I've seen more obits lately listing it then I can recall ever.

She was a wonderful woman and, by all accounts, an outstanding prosecutor and judge. I enjoyed encountering her on the campaign trail and will miss her. My prayers go out to her family.

This is sad & shocking. I met Ann when I was a young state trooper & she was a young prosecutor. My career took a different path, and I went at least 20 years without seeing her. I was pleased when I read that she was appointed to her judgeship. I made a point to stop by her chambers about a year ago to say hello and congratulate her. She seemed fine and did not mention her illness as we reminessed about the old days. I'm proud to have known her, and I'm saddened by her passing. R.I.P. Ann.

My Dad just died from pancreatic cancer on December 2nd. Why is there so much of it?

Pancreatic cancer has been linked to PFOA, a chemical found in microwave popcorn which is contaminated by this substance which is used in the popping bag. Many scientists have stricken this food item from their diet. PFOA accumulates in the human body. As many as 95% of us test positive for it. This is, of course, not proven to be the primary or sole cause of this cancer.

I knew her when she was a prosecutor and subpoenaed evidence from 911. She was a wonderful prosecutor, judge, and person. She enriched our community, and I will miss her.

I had the chance to meet here when I ran for office. A nice lady. The good die young and that is sad.

I am truly saddened by the news. In the short time that I got to know Judge Brobst, I grew to admire her very much she proved to be a remarkable human being. She will be deeply missed and my prayers go out to her family.

Truly saddened by this. I thought of her quite often .She presided over my divorce proceedings in 2010 and had it not be for her sense of justice I would have left the court room penniless and without a home for my 3 children. Ironically she passed on, on my ex's 1st anniversary date to the woman he was cheating with. I will always be so thankful that she presided over my case and gave me hope that things would get better.

The Towson Community is going to miss her beautiful smile. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ann's family.

What a compassionate, and highly sophisticated lady she was! She lived long enough to handle my friends case before she passed on. May she forever rest in peace! Beautiful, kind, sweet gentle spirit that she was.....
