Oma Carol Brooks
January 9, 1942- January 21, 2023
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Oma Carol Brooks of Deale, MD. Oma was a cherished mother, grandmother, and friend and is best known as “Memaw” to her closest friends and family. She died peacefully in her home surrounded by her family and friends after her long hard-fought battle with cancer ended on January 21, 2023, at 81 years of age.
Oma was born in Baltimore on January 9, 1942, to Eileen and William Collins. She was the oldest of 9 children.
She was a very beloved member of the Deale community for 58 years. Most will remember her from her 45 plus years serving food and drinks at Happy Harbor Restaurant. She was a simple woman who enjoyed the simple things in life: her family, her friends, her church, sitting on her front porch, a good nap, her pets, and a sweet treat. She was a caregiver at heart and loved by everyone she met.
She is survived by her daughter Beth Brooks of Maryland, her son Steve Brooks of Georgia, her grandchildren Kristen Brooks (MD), Courtney Brooks (FL), Jacob Brooks (GA), Shawn Brooks (GA), and her newest pleasure, her great-grandson, Isaac Simmons (MD). She was loved by many and will be missed by all.
