BROOKS, Joane Elizabeth (nee Taylor)   – Passed away peacefully just short of her 94th birthday on November 4, 2022 at Chartwell Wynfield LTC Home in Oshawa with all three of her children by her side.

Graduating as an RN from Oshawa General Hospital in 1951, Joane was known as a very sensible, and hard working woman who sacrificed much for the love of her family and was loved so much in return.

A great lady that will be sorely missed!

Joane was predeceased by Bud Brooks, her loving husband of 46 years. Dear mother of Beverly Joan Cowling and her husband Harold of Courtice, Diane Elizabeth James and her partner Ray Hopwood of Cobourg, and Thomas Richard Brooks and his wife Robin of Carleton Place. Joane was the dear grandmother of Laura (Scott), Elizabeth (Ryan), Allan (Rebecca), Jonathan (Laura), Corbin (Richelle), Jenean and Taylor. Known to them only as GG, Joane was also the loving great grandmother to Claire, Thomas, Patricia, Brooks, Mae, Evan, Abigail, Holly and Rowan.

A private funeral service for the immediate family on November 12, 2022.

Friends and Family are welcome to attend a “Celebration of Life” on what would have been Joane’s 94th birthday on November 26, 2022 from 2 to 5 p.m., at Chronicle Brewing, 422 Lake Rd., Bowmanville, On.


In lieu of flowers a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Canada would be a wonderful way to honour Joane’s memor.
