Rosalyn "Rozzy" Liebowitz Brooks, eternal optimist, selfless giver, garlic lover, tenacious pursuer, glamour girl, beloved wife, adored mother and grandmother died Sunday July 28th 2013 surrounded by her loving family. Rosalyn was born January 31st, 1936 in Brooklyn, New York to Abe Lauber and Sara Geik. After a divorce, she moved to California with her 3 rambunctious boys Manny, Johnny (deceased), and Joe. Never deterred, she conquered any hurdle, no matter the difficulty or odds against her. Rozzy tackled many careers while raising her family always providing unconditional love. In September 1989 she met the love of her life at Mt. Rubidoux Seventh Day Adventist Church who inspired her to accept Christ. In March 1996 they married and started a new adventure together. Their union brought two families together enriching their lives. She was tenacious in her grand motherhood defending her "perfect" grandchildren and always providing a sanctuary to any in need. Whether it was a hug, meal, or encouraging word her love lifted the life of any she touched. She leaves to cherish her memory, a loving and devoted husband Mel Brooks, her 3 sons Manny, Joseph, Brian, 3 daughters, Barbara, Murralyn, Allison, 9 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, her sister and best friend Yolanda Smith, several cousins living across the country and a host of friends. Rosalyn was a member of various community associations; The Red Hats, Masonic Family organizations, Star of the Valley, Order of the Eastern Star, Mission Bell glamour Court, Order of the Amaranth, and City of Moreno Valley Community Emergency Response Team. She will be remembered for her unconditional love, loyalty, devotion to her family, her positive attitude and "the greatest grandmother". She will be cremated and a celebration of life service will be held at the Il Sorrento clubhouse at 23820 Ironwood Ave, Moreno Valley, CA on August 10th from 4:00-7:00. Refreshments will be served. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Mount Rubidoux Seventh Day Adventist construction fund. "The basic law of physics is that no energy is ever "lost" or destroyed; it only assumes another form. If such is the case with physical energy, how much more so a spiritual entity such as the soul. It is just that the soul passes from one form of existence to a higher, spiritual form of existence. Yet it lives on forever." -The Lubavitcher Rebbe
