Georgia Catherine Brooks

March 11, 1931 — February 16, 2024

Bracebridge

Peacefully at Andy’s House on February 16th, 2024, Georgia Brooks passed away in her 93rd year. Georgia is survived by her two sons, Alex (Linda) and Andy (Maureen), and nephew Dan (Cindy). Georgia was dearly loved by her grandchildren Jamie (Minju), Kailey (Scott), and Stephen (Michelle). Her great grandchildren, Jackson, Nash, Piper, and Griffin were blessed to have spent many wonderful times with their ‘great-gramma’. Georgia was predeceased by her sister Norma Jean Robert, youngest son David, partner Davey Campbell, and niece Shelagh Brooks Gill. Georgia will be fondly remembered by many close to her, especially Beth Galbraith, Laurie Thompson (nee Suter), God daughter Robyn Specht, Sally Boothby, and Dave and Annette Allen. 

 

Georgia Catherine Brooks was born to George W. and Edna Brooks on March 11, 1931. Though she travelled often, Georgia lived her entire life in Bracebridge, the town she so dearly loved. A founding member of the Kinnette Club, and participant and organizer of Town events, such as the 2000 Bracebridge High School millennial-year reunion, Georgia appreciated the need to nourish the roots of her hometown, while also enjoying its growth.  

 

Her true life’s work was her family, raising her three boys with their father George. Alex, Andy, and David were the centre of her life as she helped them navigate and achieve their many successes and accomplishments. It was as a mother that Georgia’s caring and perceptive qualities were most evident. Never was this more revealing than through the care she provided to her son David throughout his 42-year battle with chronic renal failure. She would be at his bedside or just a phone call away if he needed her. 

 

In her later years, Georgia enjoyed a wonderful life with partner David Campbell. Georgia and Davey travelled and enjoyed the company of their many friends. Indeed, it was Georgia’s gracious personality and gregarious approach to life that endeared her to people, and fostered so many lifelong friendships. Whether hosting friends and family in her home (she was an exceptional cook), or as an expert bridge partner (playing with the same club for over 60 years), Georgia made everyone in her midst always feel welcome and valued. 

 

Georgia would want the family to thank Dr. Lajuenesse, the nurses and staff at South Muskoka Memorial Hospital, and the staff at Andy’s House for the wonderful care they provided as her last days and hours approached. 

 

There is no formal gathering at this time.  Memorial gifts to the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated in Georgia’s memory.
