Margaret J. Brooks

November 24, 1925 — May 17, 2024


Poland-Margaret Jones Brooks, 98, of Poland, passed away on Friday, May 17, 2024, at St. Elizabeth Health Center, Youngstown. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, C. Richard Brooks, whom she married on August 10, 1946. 

Born November 24, 1925 in Youngstown, she was a daughter of the late James H. and Naomi Novella (Vasey) Jones.

Margaret was a 1943 graduate of Struthers High School. She worked as a stenographer with the Youngstown Sheet and Tube for many years until their closure. Taking a break from work, she took time taking care of her father who was ill, until his passing. Margaret made the decision to attend classes at Youngstown State University and pursued a career with the Poland Board of Education as a Board Office Secretary, where she worked for several years.

She enjoyed spending her days on the green where she could be found golfing and was a member of several golfing leagues at Lake Front Golf Course in Columbiana. She loved traveling, especially on the many cruises she took with her sister, some of which would include Alaska, Bahamas, Caribbean, and the Panama Canal. Her love of football was nothing she was shy about, a beloved Steelers and University of Michigan fan at heart, you can always find her watching the games on TV and even attending a few in person.  She was always up for a good piece of chocolate to cure her sweet tooth. Above all, she cherished her moments being a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

She leaves behind to cherish her memory her children, Terri (Tony J.) Brooks-Favarula, of Poland, and Gregg (Rebecca Floch), of Saint Pete Beach, FL; grandson, Tony R. (Brenda Whaley) Favarula, of Chicago, IL; great-grandchildren, August, Ophelia and Levi Favarula; niece and nephew, Sandra Morgan-Pool and James Richard Morgan, both of Arizonia; great- nephew, Eric Morgan.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her brother, James H. Jones, Jr. and her sister, Naomi (Rich) Morgan.
