Marguerite Brooks

Mrs. Marguerite M. Brooks, age 99, of Gloversville, New York, died on Sunday, January 8, 2023 at Nathan Littauer Hospital Nursing Home in Gloversville.


She was born on November 5, 1923 in Johnstown, New York, the daughter of Roy and Maude Smith. She graduated early from High School, and found work for the local leather manufacturers. She married her husband, Donald, and together they raised their family. She was later employed as a bus aide by the Gloversville School District.

Marguerite was very proud of the fact that she had received accolades from the school for saving a child's life from an out of control motorist while at work.


Marguerite is survived by sons: Jeffery Brooks and Alan Brooks; as well as several grandchildren.


She was predeceased by her husband: Donald R. Brooks; her parents: Roy and Maude Smith; a son: Russell Brooks; and her four brothers and one sister.
