Lois Anne Brooks passed away Saturday (Sept. 10, 2011) in her hometown and birthplace of Delaware.
She was born to William A. and Gladys I. (Oyer) Brooks who preceded her in death. She is also preceded in death by her brothers, Thomas W. Brooks and David R. Brooks.
She is survived by her Aunt Edna (Deane) Carter of Frankfort, Ohio; niece, Erin W. Murphy of Hawaii; great-nieces and her cousin, Eulah Oyer; and many, many dear friends.
Lois blazed a trail at the law firm of Kegler Brown Hill & Ritter where she became one of the first of paralegals in Central Ohio. She made lifelong friends at the firm and mentored many others during her 26 years before retirement in 1998. She was an avid seamstress, volunteer and most importantly a lover of animals. She co-founded the Heart of Ohio Boxer Rescue in 1989 and saved countless neglected animals from abuse and found new loving homes. Her faithful bulldog, Maudie, will miss her kind and adoring human.
