Caroline accepted Christ as her personal Savior at an early age and was baptized at Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Joliet, Illinois.

She met her loving, devoted husband, Allan L. Brooks Sr. in 1971, on a blind date. Which ended there until a couple months later, when they ran into each other again at a party; where they danced the night away. This was the moment they bonded and would lead them down a road to 47 years of a wonderful marriage. During this time, she spoiled Allan rotten and had three wonderful children Kathryn R. Buckley (Shawn), Allan L. Brooks Jr. and the late Stephen L. Brooks.

During her 66 years of life she devoted her time to caring for others as a Licensed Practical Nurse. She worked as a nurse at the Community Substance Abuse Center in Aurora, Illinois. While caring for those who needed loving support; Caroline had so much love to give that she was able to love those she cared for and provide a solid loving home for her husband and children. With family being her main priority, she made sure that they knew just how much she loved them all. She provided daily care for her husband in his time of need and health issues. She never complained about the work she did that helped those who needed it most. No matter the time nor the day she always answered the call.

Allan and Kathryn,

Caroline was one of my first patients at RML and she was such a joy to work with while she was there with us. I always looked forward to her sass, facial expressions, and dancing. I was saddened to hear when she was emergently discharged and am even more incredibly saddened to hear of her passing. Even having known her for such a short time, I can tell she was a very very special lady and the love I could see that she shared with you, Allan, was something special to see. I send my deepest condolences to your family during this hard time, and Caroline will always be a patient that I will remember in my career.

Lauren Adamick, student physical therapist

My heart was sadden to hear of the passing of Caroline. We grew up together in the same neighborhood and graduate from Joliet Central class of 1970. We had some good times. I just want to send the family some love and support and may the good Lord carry you all through this difficult time.
