On June 3, 2020, Emily P. Brooks, 91, went home to be with her loving husband, Ben W. Brooks, who passed in 1984. Emily was born in Ridgeway, June 2, 1929 to the late John K. Pulliam, Sr. and Eva Walker Pulliam, where she resided her entire life.

She was a lifelong member of Ridgeway United Methodist Church, where she taught Sunday school and was active with the youth. In earlier years she worked at Dupont, but later resigned to work for the family business, B.W. Brooks & Sons.

Emily spent most of her adult life being a wonderful caring wife, mother and grandmother. Emily was an avid supporter of the Ridgeway Volunteer Fire Department Lady’s auxiliary, baking her famous chili and sweets for fundraisers. Emily was known as “Nana” to 12 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren and most people that came in contact with her.

Along with her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her granddaughter, Shawn Ann Brooks; her sister, Carrie P. Briggs and her husband, Marvin; two brothers, John “Pete” Pulliam, Jr. and his wife, Joyce, and Eugene “Bookie” Pulliam and wife Sylvia.

She is survived by three loving sons and their spouses; Benny Brooks (Lorna), Wesley Brooks (Fran) and Larry Brooks (Sharon) all of Ridgeway; her best friend and sister, Janet P. Lester (Billy) of Carthage, NC. Nana is also survived by her 12 grandchildren, Jennifer Brown (Sam); Shannon Davis (Joe), Stephanie Bates (Ricky) Davey Brooks (Danielle), Joe Brooks (Stephanie), Jamie Dixon, Adam Thurman, Brie Thurman, Jennifer Washburn, Joseph Washburn (Susanne), Jessica Minter (Tyler), Jordon Scott (Jeff). She also had 19 loving great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews, and her parrot Virgil. She will be sorely missed by many.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Ridgeway Methodist Church or Ridgeway Volunteer Fire Department. The family would like to thank the staff of Amedisys Home Health Care.

A visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, June 5, 2020 at McKee-Stone Funeral Home. Due to COVID 19 restrictions a private funeral service for family only will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at Ridgeway United Methodist Church. The public is invited to attend her interment at Mt. View Cemetery at 3:00 p.m.

Our hearts go out to Pemmie's family in their loss. Pemmie inherited her good humor from her mom, our Aunt Eva. She was always pleasant company. Pemmie was truly a good person and I know she is receiving rewards in heaven now.

Aunt Eva's kids seemed to like our dad, their Uncle Dennis, as much as his own kids did. Pemmie was a favorite of his, though. I always thought it was something to do with the delicious coconut cakes she made for him. Lol!

I always knew her as "Pemmie". She was my grandpa Dennis's niece and there was a special bond there between them. They did a lot together in the year between Grandma Jetties death and Grandpas. I'm sure you guys will miss her but I know she had a glorious reception at her homecoming.
