It is with heavy hearts that we take this time to announce the passing of Mrs. Octavia Brooks, one of the founders of the Texas Woman To Woman conference. She joined the Al-Anon Family Groups on May 6, 1961. After a full and amazing and truly blessed life, where she gave so much to so many, her Lord finally called her home on February 27, 2017, at 4:08 a.m.
Ms. Octavia taught so very many of us either directly or indirectly and by teaching those who have gone before us to walk with grace and dignity not just with her words but, more importantly, through her actions. She showed us how to laugh, how to love, how to dress, how to behave and how to conduct ourselves like Beautiful Women in Recovery. She truly “Bridged the Gap” between Alcoholics Anonymous and the Al-Anon Family Groups. Hers is a legacy that has spread and will continue to spread for many, many years and for many, many, many families.
We humbly thank You, God, for sharing your Sweet Ms. Octavia Brooks with us here on earth. We have indeed been truly blessed.
Please, feel free to scroll down and share a comment about what Octavia has meant to you as your way of passing on what she has so freely given.
