We announce the peaceful passing of Pauline (Hill) Brooks, predeceased by her husband Douglas A. Brooks, her mother Mary Elizabeth Cook, and father Alfred Albert Hill. 

She is survived by three children Cindy Furey, John Brooks and Karen (Ross) Cater, all of Newfoundland; by six grandchildren Patrick (Poorva) Furey, Elizabeth and Lauren Furey, Dianna Brooks (Jason), Tristan and Dana Cater; by great grandchild Anushka Furey; by sister-in-law Caroline Brooks of Ottawa; by special friend and cousin Claire (Bill) Batt; and by cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends.

Pauline (Polly) was an active member of St Margaret's Anglican Church having served for years on vestry, choir, praise group, lay reader and as altar server. She was also a member of the Pastoral Care Department at DECH, and a volunteer for many years in the Palliative and Extended Care units at DECH.

She was a beloved wife, mother, relative, grandmother, and great grandmother. She loved people and laughter and had numerous friends across the entire age spectrum. She was a friend to all.

One of her favorite songs "I Did it My Way" (Frank Sinatra) described her wonderful life. She did indeed do it her way.

"All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!"
