With her family at her bedside, Terry Brooks passed away peacefully at the age of 60 after a long battle with cancer.
She was born on June 11, 1958 in Norwich, England to Joe and Rita Dunn. A Pacifica native, Terry attended Terra Nova High School alongside her brothers, Marty and Kevin Dunn. Terry married her best friend, Art Brooks, on April 6, 1991 and the two shared 28 happy years together filled with love, laughter and adventure. Her proudest moment in her life was becoming a mother on May 23, 1993 to her daughter Caitlin. In 2000, Terry, her husband Art, and daughter Caitlin moved to Escalon where she called home her remaining years.
A devoted wife and mother, Terry lived life to the fullest. She went out of her way to make others feel loved. Her and her family loved to travel and spend their summers camping in the Redwood Forest on the Avenue of the Giants. Terry is survived by her husband Art Brooks, daughter Caitlin Brooks, brother Marty Dunn, nephew Joe Dunn, and dog Bella. There will be no services as Terry wished to have a small celebration of life with her family. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
