Shirley Ann Brooks

August 15, 1936 – December 11, 2023

Mrs. Shirley Ann (Jalovec) Brooks, 87, of Indianapolis passed away at Copper Trace Family-First Senior Living in Westfield, Indiana on Monday, December 11, 2023. Shirley was born August 15, 1936, in Muskegon, MI to the late Carl and Genevieve (Somers) Jalovec. Shirley worked at Indiana Records Managers, Inc for many years before retiring.

In addition to her parents, Shirley is preceded in death by her brother Carl R. Jalovec and granddaughter Jamie Bormann.

Shirley married Anthony K Brooks on May 3, 1992, and they enjoyed many travel adventures, card games, and Colts games upon retirement. Shirley was an avid volunteer for Indianapolis Oasis and enjoyed cooking, traveling, and spending time with her children and many grandchildren. Shirley was known for her spunky personality, soft hugs, and love for all animals. Shirley was quite proud of her Michigan heritage and earned many bragging rights with regards to her large family. She will certainly be missed by many.
