Obituary

Lisa Marie Brooks, a loving and devoted mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend, passed away in the early hours on Monday, May 9, 2022 at the young age of 59.

Lisa was born in Plainfield, New Jersey on August 7, to Edward Green. She graduated from Piscataway High School in 1980. Lisa had a passion for helping those in need and delighted in bringing joy and comfort to those around her. This led her to pursue a career in social work. In 2005 she received her Bachelor of Social Work from Western New Mexico University in Silver City and in 2013 her Master of Social Work from the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. Lisa was a Licensed Master Social Worker and dedicated much of her time to helping clients and patients in the community. Lisa’s greatest enjoyment in life was spending time with her husband, daughters, sons-in-law, and loved ones. In her spare time, she would go on long walks and hikes, loved cooking and baking, and was a fanatic for a clean house. Her positive attitude and cheerful nature, paired with her dedication to her community and neighbors, especially her loved ones, cast a light in this world that will never grow dim and will never be forgotten.

Lisa is survived by her husband, Earl Brooks of 13 years of Deming; father, Edward H. Green of Deming; 2 daughters, Amy Boothroyd (Craig) of Jacksonville, FL and Deanna Liu (Tony) of Parker, TX; stepdaughter, Cari Ahearn (Drew) of Puyallup, WA; sisters, Barbara Blythe of Hamburg, PA, Kathye Olson (Eric) of Elkton, MD, Chrissy Matts (John) of Monroe Township, NJ, Laura Stevens of Phoenix, AZ and Cindy Lizzano (Carl) of Summerville, SC; brothers, Chuck Johnson (Terri) of Escondido, CA, Eddie Green of Phoenix, AZ and many nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Mary Green.
