Obituary of Martha Brooks
Jesus called our Martha home and she now rests in the arms of our loving God. Martha M. (DeConti) Brooks, 50, of Hebron passed away suddenly at her home on Saturday, April 7, 2018. Martha was born on November 29, 1967 in New Britain, the daughter of Phillip V. and Marjorie (Claffey) DeConti. She lived in Hebron for the past 20 years where she, and the love of her life, Tim, raised their three beautiful daughters. Martha devoted her life to her faith, her family and her friends. To know her was to know the love of Jesus, for she walked Christ’s path so perfectly. Through her extraordinary grace and beauty, her kindness and unconditional love, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. She was a vessel through which God’s goodness flowed – her heart was filled with the deepest empathy, compassion, humility and gratitude. Martha was the anchor who brought people together – her family and friends – and made us all better people. Martha enjoyed every moment of every day and lived her meaningful life with the greatest optimism and passion – and gorgeous smile! She was the hope in time of renewal as the tulips burst through in Spring; the joy in riding in her convertible on a stunning Summer day; the gratitude in a glorious sunset at day’s end; the magnificence of the Autumn foliage; the calmness and warmth of a roaring fire on a cold Winter day, and always with Timmy by her side. Martha leaves her devoted husband of 30 years, Tim, and their three incredible children Kelly (Shawn) Brunner, Erika Brooks and Nicole Brooks. She also leaves her precious four-month old grandson, Cody David Brunner. She is also survived by her parents Philip and Marjorie DeConti and 6 siblings: Pam (Robert) Dorn, Philip (Tamera) DeConti, Christopher (Phyllis) DeConti, Patrick DeConti, Matthew DeConti and Amy (David) Tupper. Martha also leaves her father and mother-in-law Wayne and Susan Brooks, her brothers-in-law Christopher (Karlene) Brooks and Patrick Brooks as well as many nieces, nephews and dear friends she loved so much. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday (April 13) at 10:00 a.m. at the Church of the Holy Family, 185 Church Street in Hebron. Burial will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery, 1318 Hebron Avenue in Glastonbury. Family and friends may call at the Mulryan Funeral Home, 725 Hebron Ave., Glastonbury on Thursday, April 12, 2018 from 5-8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Martha’s memory to the Make A Wish Foundation, 126 Monroe Tpke, Trumbull, Connecticut 06611, wish.org. Martha was an extraordinary person who made a difference in everyone’s lives. She was a gift, a blessing, and a light. Forever in our hearts she will shine so bright! We are truly grateful for her beautiful legacy: Kelly, Erika, Nicole, and Cody who are filled with Martha’s beautiful heart and soul. Rest in Peace, our amazing Angel. We love you, forever.
