Lee Bryn Brooks

February 14, 1951 - March 04, 2015


Lee Bryn Brooks was born on Valentine’s Day of 1951. A native Californian, she was raised in Torrance by parents Robert Francis Jones and Louisette Margaret Diotti, along with her three brothers Bob, Jim, and Scott. She attended North High School and graduated in 1968. Though she knew her husband, Dan Brooks, in high school, she would not meet him again until their ten-year high school reunion. They were married just two years later in 1979.

She went to work at Prudential Insurance right out of high school, and later began her 35-year career in education. She has worked for Irvine Unified School District for the last 30 years in a variety of roles, most recently as Executive Assistant to the Superintendent. At IUSD, she found her true occupational passion. She served as an invaluable member of the Leadership Team with her insight and far-reaching knowledge of the legacy of the organization.

Her most cherished roles, however, were mother to her daughter Amber Marie Linehan and son-in-law Jeremy Linehan, and grandmother to her two grandchildren, Ben and Holly. Her grandson Ben dubbed Lee with the new name of “Dot” and the name stuck. Dot loved her family and found joy with them every day. She was a perfectionist in both her professional and personal life. Her charisma and passion will be missed every day by the many people that love her.

    I worked with Lee for 6 years while at IUSD. She exudes passion for her family, friends, and service in the field of education. My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and coworkers. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. She reminded me in May 2013, after my grandmother passed, that the death of a loved one does not end the relationship, it just changes it.
    May we hang on to hope and a reunion in heaven. Judy Mueller, MN

    So many fond memories of Lee, her warm smile and energy always filled the room. Her grandbabies Ben and Holly were the light of her life. She adored them and they adored her.
    We will miss you Dot, but will always keep your memory close to our hearts and to those grandbabies. May we meet again in eternal life. Our love, Judy and Jack Linehan

    I have known Lee since I began working in IUSD 27 years ago. I will always remember her bright smile and the warm greeting she had for me every time we saw each other. She was a beautiful person both inside and out and will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her. My heartfelt condolences to all of her family and other loved ones.
