Theresa Lorraine Brooks (Valiquette)

February 27, 1948 – June 24, 2022


Theresa passed suddenly on June 24, 2022 in Buford, Ga.  She was born on February 27, 1948 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada to parents Geraldine Elnora Valiquette and Fernand Gustave Valiquette.  In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her brother Richard and survived by her sisters Leona and Gwendolyn.  Beloved wife and mother, Theresa is survived by her husband of nearly 55 years, Murray Brooks.  Three children Cynthia Lappe (Greg) of Buford, Georgia, Geoff Brooks (Tammy) of Calgary, Alberta, Lisa Miklos (Steve) of Deseronto, Ontario and her grandchildren Jordan Alexis (Greg and Cynthia), Cadence, Ryder and Hailey (Geoff and Tammy), Josh and Megan (Lisa) will miss her tremendously.
