Mrs. Brooks was a realtor in the Mobile area for over 25 years, spending the majority of her career with Roberts Brothers. She graduated from Murphy High School in 1946 and was instrumental in organizing and leading their class reunions for many years. She was a noted Historian of Old Mobile, appearing on television and radio sharing her incredible knowledge and interesting stories. She will be remembered for her quick wit and sense of humor, love of cooking, beautiful needlework, wonderful collection of books, and her enjoyment of crossword puzzles. We have many fond memories of listening to her recite poems, and telling stories about her childhood in Texas.
