DELORES ROSE AMELIA BROOKS, was born to Frances Ponieviskie in Detroit, Michigan on January 20, 1933. On January 28, 1957, Delores married the love of her life Charley Alfred Brooks. The couple moved onto a small acreage outside of Magnolia, Minnesota, where they made their home together. The couple lovingly welcomed several children as their family grew, Arthur, Wade, Lorna, Elissa, and Owen, moving into Magnolia in 1960, then to Kanaranzi, Minnesota from 1963 to 1974, and finally to Luverne, Minnesota in 1974. For over 40 years, Delores worked hard cleaning commercial and residential properties.

On February 13, 1971, Delores was baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness. From the time she became a Witness, she zealously shared what she learned with others. Her faith was very important to her and guided her as she built relationships with those around her. She was very social and loved to meet other people. She was also gifted in lovingly sharing her thoughts and ideas with others and was never afraid to tell you how she felt. She was a meticulous and detail oriented person who took pride in her work and the space around her. She loved being a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and shared her interests with her family. Finally, Delores loved to dance. Her favorite music to dance to was the waltz and the polka.

Delores is lovingly remembered by her children, Elissa Brooks of Luverne, and Owen (Vicki Burger) Brooks of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; grandchildren, Ashley Skatvold, Whitney (John) Jacobs, Hunter Brooks, Ryder Brooks, and Harper Brooks, all of Sioux Falls; and great-grandchildren, Riley Peltier, Austin Peltier, Ava Skatvold, and Lexii Baxter. She was preceded in death by her husband, Charley Brooks; and children, Arther Brooks, Wade Brooks, and Lorna Brooks.
