She was married for almost 30 years to John G. Brooks until his untimely death in 1971. He loved
her very much and she felt the same, she never remarried or even had a steady romantic relationship after she was widowed.
They had two sons William (San Diego) and Robert (Los Angeles) and 7 grandchildren Shannon,
Cortney and Michael from Bill and his wife Kathy. John, Matt, Zach and Aimee from Bob and his former wives Maureen, Kathee
She was active as a trustee of St. Johns Hospital and she continued Johns work at USC as an honorary
trustee. She maintained friendships all around the world.
Fiercely independant, she was seriously injured in 2000 while living alone and required surgery,

for by her son Robert and his wife April until she made her transition. Peace.
