We mournfully announce the passing of Maud ( Lois) Rosebrooks, 88, of Felton, DEe. Maud passed away peacefully on May 16, 2023, surrounded by her family. Maud was born to George Rosebrooks and Lois Rosebrooks (Fisher), on July 30, 1934 in Webster, Mass.
Lois is predeceased by her parents and brother, Clay Rosebrooks.
Lois is survived by her nephew Clay Jr.(Laura) Rosebrooks, Nieces Christine (Mike) Frampton, Amanda Rosebrooks and many great nephews and nieces.
Lois moved to New York in 1957 to pursue her biggest passion in life, Music. As an avid opera singer she spent countless hours perfecting her ability. When Maude wasn’t singing she could be found at her other passion, The Plymouth Church in New York with her amazing friends, Vickie and Jacqui. Lois lived a life full of amazing journeys and passions. Lois Rosebrooks was a beloved long-time member of Plymouth Church. Lois – who was present in the choir loft when Martin Luther King, Jr. preached at Plymouth – joined Plymouth in 1963. An accomplished soloist, she sang in the choir, led the Sunday School, and served on the Council. When she retired from her “day job” at the trademark office, she founded the Plymouth History Ministry, for which she maintained a desk at Plymouth, responded to history questions from all over the world, led countless tours, and organized the Plymouth archives. In 2015, she stepped back from her responsibilities at Plymouth to move to Dover to be closer to her family. Lois was a woman who steadfastly lived out her Christian faith every day, and in doing so was an inspiration to all of us. She was a friend, a mentor, a lively lunch companion, and a wise colleague.
Arrangements are pending for Lois, though we know it was her intention to be interred at Mt. Zion cemetery in Webster, MA, in the Walter Rosebrooks plot.
In the meantime, condolence messages may be sent to her family at The Family of Lois Rosebrooks, c/o Ashley McGinnis, 170 Beagle Club Road, Felton, DE. 19943
