How Did We Do?

Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Bertha Mae Brooks (77) went to rest on Sunday, December 31, 2017.

Mrs. Bertha Brooks was born in Springfield, TN on March 16, 1940 to the late George A. and Sallie L. Moore. Bertha grew up in Evansville, Indiana and graduated from Lincoln High School in 1958. After graduation, Bertha was wooed and wed the light of her life, Odell Brooks. Bertha and Odell started their family in Fort Wayne, Indiana where they both found work at International Harvester. In 1984, Bertha and Odell moved their family to Indianapolis, Indiana.

Bertha was known for her loving and generous spirit to all who knew her and She was the mother to many children and adults. She was a God-Fearing woman and ALWAYS put her children before her desires. She had a no-nonsense demeanor and never hesitated to say exactly how she felt. But, in the midst of her directness she had a heart of Gold and was "HILIARIOUS"....The sound of her laughter will never be forgotten.

Bertha is survived by her loving children, Ronnie O. Brooks, Hampton, Virginia, Dr. Vonda K. Brooks, Dana R. Brooks (Vivian), and Shawn L. Brooks of Indianapolis, Indiana; 9 grandchildren Kelly of Hampton, Va., Chandon (Ebony), Brandon, Rhonda, Shawn II, Rayna, Shawnye and Dane all of Indianapolis, In. and Timothy of Columbus, Ohio; 5 great-grandchildren Kendall of Hampton, Virginia, Chanity, Dewayne, Skylar and Journee of Indianapolis, Indiana and a host of nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends.

Well, a celebration in heaven indeed. This woman was simply inspirational, to say the least, with anyone who took the time to get to know her. My deepest sympathy to her family. I had the distinct 'honor' of working alongside Bertha at I.H. here in Fort Wayne. What a memorable experience. I'd never heard 'nothing but good' from her, and oh yes, that laugh. You, her family, couldn't have chosen better words when creating her obit of which we here thank you so much for sharing. May God stay in your hearts as you journey this difficult time.

My Auntie, There are not enough words to express what she meant to me. To my Cousins Ronnie, Vonda, Dana, and Shawn, I send my Heartfelt Condolences to each of you during this time. I Thank God that I have stored in my heart many great memories of my Aunt and times we shared together. She has received her crown and is resting now, but we can be happy to know that one day, we will see her again, along with the rest of our Love Ones.
Love You Family!
