In recent weeks she said "Life owes me nothing, I have had the great privilege of meaningful work and meaningful love, and along the way a lifetime of meaningful adventures." Donna's quiet manner did not always make obvious her quick wit, her tenderness for animals and her love of nature. For the past fourteen years, she spent most weekends at her beloved home in Julian. Her love of medicine, her love of life, and her profound serenity, gave her a rare and precious glow. Her final act of generosity was to donate her body so that some future doctors could learn, as she did, the wonders and mystery of the human body. She was always grateful to donors who recognized the importance of such learning made possible by their gifts to medical research. Donna Brooks was predeceased by her parents and both brothers. She is survived by her partner, Cathy Conheim, by her stepdaughter Lille Glasser, and stepsons Eric and Bruce Weisman of San Diego, by Cindy and Vincent Brooks, niece and nephew in Los Angeles, by her sister-in-law Janet Walsh, by her three furry 'children': Henry, Dolly and Higgins, and by a huge community of students, colleagues and friends. A Celebration of Life will be scheduled later. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to The Athena Charitable Trust, 5411 Bahia Lane, La Julia, CA 92037 for the Donna Brooks Medical Scholarship Fund or to any person or cause which makes this world a better place.
