Remembering the Life of
PARIS SHAREE BROOKS
We come to celebrate the life of Paris Sharee” Par-Par” Brooks, 25, Clifton Heights, Pennsylvania, who departed this life on March 27th, 2020. Paris was born on July 6, 1994 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to James Brooks and Rosalind Wood. Paris graduated from Universal Audenried Charter High School of Philadelphia School District in June 2012.
She then went on to attend the Community College of Philadelphia and transferred to Indiana University of Pennsylvania, following in the footsteps of her sister, Brittany, to experience real college life. She completed her college career at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated and received a bachelor’s degree of Arts in Psychology on May 12, 2018. In January of 2020, she had started on another journey at Capella University to pursue master’s degree.
While attending college Paris working for various collection agencies and could quickly secure payments with her down-to earth demeanor; that we all loved and knew about her. However, she did not find her true calling until she started working at Kipp Charter School of Philadelphia. There, she finally found what she was born to do; help young children in their time of need. Par-Par, as she was affectionately known, enjoyed music, reading, traveling, and yoga/meditating, spending time with friend and loved ones. In her many accomplishments, par was an avid cheerleader, even couching a team where she taught girls how to get show school spirit.
Recently, she had become more spiritual and mastered the art of Tarot Card reading. Can’t forget her love of movies like “Stepbrothers” and” The Temptations”, she could watch them repeatedly and laugh like it was her first, every time! Par had great dreams of teaming with her Aunt Denise and opening a daycare center, like her Aunt Kim. She desired to teach children at a young age, support them in them of need, and ensure they were always loved and cared for.
Paris was a member of a large family. To know Par-Par is to love Par-Par, forever in our hearts.
She is survived by her parents, James Brooks and Rosalind Wood, her great-grandmother Grace Manuel,
Three grandmothers; Pamela Brooks, Pamela Lovell, and Mary L Johnson, Three grandfathers; Robert
Mack, Harry l. Lovell Jr., and Herman Jackson, along with four sisters, six brothers, and a host of
nephews, aunts, uncle, and cousins. With Paris’s sudden passing, we are reminded that tomorrow is
promised to no one, to embrace one another with unconditional love, and to glorify our Sovereign God,
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for all our remaining days on earth! Remember to love one another just as
much a Par loved you, she would be sadly missed.
