Ann Rogers Brooks, 84, of Oxford, NC passed away peacefully at her home Wednesday, September 30, 2020. She was born on March 5, 1936 to Alvin and Annie Averette Rogers.

She is survived by her daughter, Lisa Brooks Thompson (Gene); son, Urquhart James “Jim” Brooks Jr. (Dana); four grandchildren, Matthew Rogers Elliott, Anna Katlyn Thompson (Jorge), Urquhart James “Hart” Brooks, III, and Hayden Critcher Brooks; and one great-granddaughter, Victoria.
The family would also like to send their most sincere gratitude to her special caretaker, Ms. Tasha Arnold.
