Friends, family, and a local church remain in shock after a
Karah Brooks had a lot to live for.
"It was all about our son Madden. She was so in love with Madden and he was her world," said Brooks’ husband Jimmy Brooks.
Brooks was more than just a great mother to her 20- month- old son. She was also an extraordinary wife, daughter, and sister. Kolton, her younger brother, meant a lot to her. He had brain surgery a couple of years ago.
"Late into her pregnancy she was up at the hospital with him all day, then all night. She never went home," he said.
She took it upon herself to always be there for him when he needed her.
"It was so fun to hear her visiting with him and it was just really neat. It was a bond that I think was unusual even for siblings for her to be that close like that," said friend Teena Robbins.
Indeed Brooks was one in a million. Her family and friends said she was the most selfless person they’d ever met.
"She never took the time for herself. There was always somebody else that she thought needed help more than her,” said her husband.
That's how she lived her life. Brooks worked as an
administrative assistant for student ministries at Stonegate Fellowship in
“She went into her work with the hope that I'm going to do something that is going to hopefully make a change and make a difference in somebody’s life,” said Neil Rogers, a pastor Brooks worked closely with at Stonegate.
Tomorrow a funeral visitation will be held for Brooks at the
Nalley-Pickle & Welch funeral home in
Her family is asking the public to donate money to a scholarship program Brooks started at Stonegate for kids that can’t afford to go to camp instead of sending flowers.
