Mary Love Brooks was born on September 22, 1918 in Coosa County Alabama, the first of eight children born to Vernona and Phillip Goggans.

Mary was united in holy matrimony to Coley Brooks who preceded her in death. From this union eight children were born.

She loved sewing, gardening and traveling. She won numerous awards in sewing.  Her passion for sewing was instilled in her by her parents and she passed that knowledge down to her children and grandchildren.  Mary also grew a botanical garden in her yard which blessed neighbors and the community.  She loved to travel and she journeyed to many countries such as Israel, Italy, France, South Korea and Japan.

Mary relocated to New York in 1963. During her time in New York, she served in several churches and later joined The Refuge in Kannapolis, North Carolina.

Family and friends will remember Mary Love Brooks as an encourager.  She poured out love and positive words to all who crossed her path and many will remember how she blessed them with not only her generous spirit but by how she reflected the very love of Jesus Christ.

Mary leaves memories to be cherished by her seven children,13 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren, one brother, and a host of other relatives and friends.

The fear of the Lord Prolongeth days . . .
