Gena Berrett Brooks
She was preceded in death by her parents, Melvin S. Berrett and Venice Telford Berrett. She is survived by her siblings, Victor (Nancy) Berrett and Jan (Murray) Maxwell. She is also survived by her children, Jeff Whittemore of Twin Falls, Paul Whittemore of Boise, Denise Debban of Twin Falls and Brent (Laura) Brooks of Shingle Hollow, N.C.; and her furry kids, Brandi, Willie, Gus-Gus and Tabby. Her grandchildren are Sharayah (22), Krystyn (21), Colton (19), Thaddeus (17), Venice (15), Brock (15), Sheahlei (11), Braidyn (7), Paityn (4) and Aela (7 months).
Gena’s faith, children, grandchildren and animals were her most important priorities, though she shared her life, love and laughter with everyone she met. Her encouraging witness and steadfast faith inspired and uplifted those around her. She selflessly gave of herself to support those in need and brought smiles to the sad. Her positive influence and infectious laugh will be missed by her family and friends.
Her life celebration will be officiated by Parke’s Magic Valley Funeral Home and held at 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15, at Amazing Grace Fellowship. The service will be followed by a meal and an opportunity to share stories and condolences with the family.
