QUAKER HILL – Nancy L. (Lowden) Brooks, 69, entered eternal rest on Saturday, October 6th at Greentree Manor in Waterford surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Dunbar, PA to Hobert and Helen (Drexler) Lowden on August 6, 1943. She graduated Dunbar Twp High School in 1961 and on March 2, 1962 married her beloved husband Preston “Stoney” Brooks in Virginia. He predeceased her but 4 months and 3 days prior to her own passing. Nancy relocated with her family to Connecticut and worked most of her life as a Grinder at Electric Boat in Groton. She also spent some time working for both Mohegan Sun and Millstone until her retirement. Nancy shared her husband’s love of horses and rode as often as she could. She had a huge heart and a love of animals which often got her in trouble when a stray would appear. She loved her cat Allen and dog Mia. She also enjoyed craft fairs, a good cup of tea and hearing the laughter of her family. Nancy is survived by her mother Helen Lowden, brothers; Harry Lowden & wife Kay, Dale Lowden & wife Carla, sister; Linda Sweitzer & husband Jack, daughters; Carol Davenport & husband Edwin, Janice Johnson & husband Albert, Darla Brooks and her fiancé Harold Mooers, grandchildren; Tanya & Ken Lent, Edward & Sarah Watson, Christopher Watson, Brandon Davenport, Angelina Davenport, Meagan Brooks, Justin Johnson, Eva Brooks, great-grandchildren; Logan & Kaitlyn Lent, Jacob & Gabriella Watson along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by her husband, her father and one brother; Hobert R. Lowden. A celebration of her life will be held at a later date in PA.

Mommy, it hurts to think of the time that has gone by. It makes me sad to know that I am going to be a Grandmother come February. Your Little Eva is carring a boy and she is naming him Preston, after Daddy! I feel so alone without you and Dad. Please keep watch over me. I love and miss you both.

You have been on my mind so much lately. Missing you and Daddy so much. There has been so much going on lately it is getting harder and harder. I hope you and Daddy got to greet Jay when he got there. You haven't been in my dreams lately and that is making me sad. I miss and love you very much Mommy

Mommy Mother's Day is coming soon. It is going to be hard to handle. Missing you and Daddy so much. Not going to be able to take Daddy shopping to buy you something nice. Not being with my kids. It is going to be a very lonely day. I love you Mommy...

Mommy I am missing you so very much. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and Daddy. Today is Easter and I keep thinking of how you always had to do a basket for Daddy. He was such a big baby... I love you. Love always your baby girl Darla

I want to thank family and friends for sending all your prayers, and signing the guess book for mom. It has been a month now and it is still very hard to handle her not being here with us anymore. I am taking one day at a time. I find myself crying all the time at night so no one can see me. It is going to be a long road. I thank my Lowden family for being just a phone call away when I need someone to listen. Thank you also to my friends on face book sending there love.

Thank you, Janice
