Obituary for VERNICE NELLIE BROOKS

On October 28, 2014, the world lost a virtuous woman, and heaven received a loving servant. Throughout her life, she demonstrated her love for God, Langston, family and friends.

Vernice Nellie Parker Brooks was born on October 2 1, 1937 in Prince Frederick, Maryland. She was the only child of Harold and Sadie Parker, both now deceased. Vernice attended Calvert County Public Schools, and was a graduate of W.S. Brooks High School.

On October 3, 1960 she was joined in holy matrimony with Langston George Brooks, a marriage which would span 54 years.

Lifetime members of Plum Point United Methodist Church, Vernice and Langston answered Christ's calling. Their mission, to propel the legacy of the Annual Brooks' Day drive to become the church's major fundraiser.

In 1959, Vernice began her professional career in the healthcare community at Calvert Memorial Hospital (CMH). Leaving for 12 years only to return on October 18, 1971 as the hospital's Linen Department Supervisor. Employee of the year in 1976; "Star Search" nominee in 1990; and a CMH Ladies Auxiliary Volunteer donating nearly 6,000 lifetime hours (equivalent to 3 years of service) are a few of Vernice's achievements. These are all indicative of Vernice being a shining light at Calvert Memorial Hospital.

Vernice retired on January 23, 2014, and in May 2014 she was honored for dedicating 42 years of outstanding service.

A woman of not many words, Vernice said a lot through her quietness. For example, she was a great listener, a consummate giver, a reliable presence, a lover of all things purple, and of butterflies.

But most of all, Vernice was a totally devoted wife. She unselfishly shared all of these qualities with everyone.

Carrying forth her memories are her husband, Langston; "special daughters" June (Dinah) and Gail (Peaches); uncle Harry Gray of Island Creek, MD; brothers-in-law Albert and Sidney; sister-in-law Alice Gertrude; six nieces; nine nephews and loving family and friends.
