Janet S. Brooks


Janet Skora Brooks of Oak Bluffs died peacefully at her family’s home in Goffstown, N.H., on November 3rd. She was 60.

Janet lived beyond expectations, fighting her battle with ovarian cancer with strength and dignity for almost four years. She loved life and she loved her husband, Jim Brooks, her little cairn terrier, Abigail Rose, and her wonderful family and friends, on the Island and everywhere.

One of her dearest friends always said Janet was the kindest spirit ever to be. That friend spoke the truth. That spirit will be honored at a brief gathering at 12 noon on December 1 at Sunset Lake in Oak Bluffs.

Janet’s humble wishes would be for all of us to live life fully and to live it in the “NOW.” That’s all we truly have, but we all do have it. Realize and live your dreams. Why wait? You are invited to celebrate Janet’s life.
