On Feb. 25, 2023, Renee Brooks left this world peacefully and surrounded by family. She was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.
Renee was born on Aug. 6, 1944, to William G. and Amy M. Register at Swedish Hospital in Seattle. She graduated from Mt. Rainer High School.
After graduation, Renee took a trip to Twisp with her girlfriend, Sheila. She immediately knew this is where she wanted to live. We are not quite sure if it was the horse that caught her eye on that sunny day or the rider, John Brooks, but shortly thereafter, on Oct. 2, 1962, they were married in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Together they have two children, Russell Brooks and Teresa Romo. Rusty and Teresa were Renee’s pride and joy.
Renee loved spending time outdoors, whether she was working in her beautiful flower gardens, horseback riding, snowmobiling, cooking wonderful meals for her family and friends, creating beautiful handmade items or just drinking iced tea on the deck while watching the birds. Girls’ weekends were always a highlight, shopping for flowers in the spring, annual trips to Arizona to visit her parents, or just spending time with her family.
Renee is survived by her husband, John Brooks; mother, Amy Register; brothers: Rick (Jill) and Ron; son, Rusty (Darlene); daughter, Teresa (Garet); grandchildren: Josh, Evan (Brenda), Brady, Kellee, and Drew (Tif); two great-grandchildren: Ava and Johnny, Taylor, Adam and Kylie (Jay); along with several beloved family members. Renee was preceded in death by her father, Bill Register.

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me.” With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away. And although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best.
