Jean Lee Brooks passed away on 2 February, 2020 in the home of her daughter, Karen Moree.

Affectionately known as “Miss Jean” from her years of service as the director and owner of Miss Jean’s Early Learning Center in Pensacola, Florida. She helped parents love and care for their children in their formative years. She was preceded in death by her husband James H. Brooks, Sr. In addition to many loving friends, and her cherished Chihuahua named Austin, she is survived by three children and their spouses: James H. Brooks, Jr. and wife Debbie, David W. Brooks and wife Debbie, and Karen A. Moree and husband Herb. She is also survived by six grandchildren and their families: Christopher David Brooks and his wife Rebecca Levin Brooks and their children, William Jacob and Amelia Rose Brooks; David Hunter Brooks and his wife Diana Watkins Brooks and their children, Julia Meade and Meredith Miller Brooks; Lindsay Brooks Watson and her husband Doug Watson, and their daughter Sophie Elizabeth Watson; Jamie Nunamaker Williams and her husband Ryan, and their children Katelyn Elise, Clairise Alexandria, and Calvin Henry; Jennifer Nunamaker Crawford and her son Ivan James; and her youngest grandson Noah Joel Moree. Jean took great joy in her many children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Jean enjoyed gardening, reading and studying her Bible. She was a member of Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida, and of Moss Memorial Baptist Church while she lived with her daughter in North Carolina. She was devoted to her Sunday School class and compatriots in the study of scripture. She loved LeeAnn Ward and Liz Seaton who aided her and were constant companions in her later years. She treasured her neighbors, Ray and Norma Simmons, who are appreciated for their caring support. We are comforted by the knowledge that she rests in Heaven with many loved ones and her Lord and Savior.

Her life was distinguished by her love for her God, family, friends, and neighbors. Indomitable in spirit, fiercely independent, and possessing a natural business acumen, she distinguished herself in life. Her exceptional work ethic and expectations of the same from others set her apart in everything she did, from her studies in scripture to the business she built and operated.

Funeral services will be held at Bayview Fisher-Pou Chapel on February 14th, 2020 at 2:00 PM. Visitation will be at the same location and date at 1:00 PM. The chapel is located at 3351 Scenic Highway #90e, Pensacola, FL 32503.

Memorial donations can be made in lieu of flowers to the American Cancer Society.

Jean Brooks was the best example of a Christian I’ve ever known. She took so seriously her faith and what God’s word instructed her to do. I know she prayed for so many every day. My family was blessed to be on her prayer list. That was such a high honor. I feel at a loss of what to say I have so many memories. She was so fun and had such a great sense of humor. Kids just loved her and she loved them. I will miss her but I know I will see her in heaven one day.

Jean was a sweet, gentle lady. I met her when she started attending my church in Hayesville, NC with Karen and Herb. Jean so enjoyed coming to church and hearing the Word of the Lord preached. She set a wonderful example that being in the Lord's house was a priority. My deepest sympathy to Karen and entire family. Those who love the Lord have our blessed assurance of reuniting with our loved ones.

First, Condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Jean.

I was honored to know this fine woman, and thankful that she had a hand in educating my two sons Thomas and Robert. The foundation that she and her staff at Miss Jeans provided was a great start. Mrs. Jean truly cared for all the children in her care, as if they were hers, and always made sure the staff she employed did too. Thanks Mrs. Jean for all you did, and for all the lives you touched. We were truly blessed to have known you.
