Lois Schaefer Brooks, 82, passed away November 22 after a lengthly illness. She was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, Claude W. Brooks in 2002, and is survived by her daughter, Donna Brooks Holder (Allen G.), her son Claude W. Brooks, Jr. (Mara Beth), three grandchildren, Cory Brooks, Kelly Brooks Lester, Ray "Trey" Holder and one great grandchild Taylor Rose Brooks. She's also survived by her sister Lorene Cummins, and brothers Tom and JD Schaefer.

Lois was a woman of many talents.... airplane pilot, floral decorator, gardener, seamstress, chef (best carrot cake EVER). Her house was always open to friends and family and visitors were always welcomed with a slice of homemade pound cake and cup of coffee.

She'll be remembered for her grace and courage as she journeyed the long, difficult path of Alzheimer's.

The family wishes to express gratitude to Brandon Court nurses and CNA's (thank you, Mia), Pax Hospice (thank you, Brook and Dr. Tim Estes), and her favorite CNA, Alicia at Emeritus at Heritage.

A graveside service will be held Monday, 11 o'clock at Lakewood Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Alzheimer's Association , PO Box 96011, Washington, DC 20090-6011, or your favorite charity.
