Shari Beth Brooks
Shari Beth Brooks was born Aug. 29, 1946, and died Jan. 2, 2019 surrounded by those who loved her most. Shari was adopted by Edward and Mildred Robinson and raised alongside her older sister Nancy Roeder in Albuquerque, N.M.
Shari grew up and found the love of her life, Robert Brooks, and they married on June 4, 1966. They had three children, Tina, Anna and Robby. Shari raised the children as Bob spent years working in the U.S. Navy. In 1980, the family settled in the small town of Oak Harbor, Wash. She started Shari Brooks Daycare and enjoyed caring for many children for over 30 years. Over the years many of those children became part of her family.
She had a total of six grandchildren, loving each and every one dearly: Alexandria, Ethan, Isabella and Christophor from Tina and Michael Gudgel; Austin and Ashley from Anna and Henry Reola. She loved being a grandparent and being a part of their lives.
Over the years she accomplished many things. She loved talking and being around people from TOPS to Bunco or all the scrapbooking groups she was involved with. She loved card games and word search puzzles, but most of all she loved her four legged friends over the years.
She is now reunited with the ones she loved and lost. May the Lord be with her.
The family will hold a Celebration of Life Memorial on Jan. 20 from noon to 5 p.m. at the family home.
