Rose Marie “Ma Deuce” (Winney) Brooks, 67, joined her beloved son Scott Andrew Farr in heaven on Thursday, June 25, 2020, at home following a long illness.

Born April 5, 1953 in Saratoga Springs, NY to the late Walter and Hazel (Vandenburg) Winney.

She graduated Saratoga High School. Throughout her life, Rose traveled to many states before finally returning to New York. She retired from Walmart where she made many friends. A day did not go by that she went in there and raised hell with her former co- workers.

Rose was full of life, always wanting to make you smile and laugh with some kind of silly joke. She touched many people’s lives. She was a very loving soul that would do anything for anyone even if it meant that she had to go without. Although she still wants to know… “Where’s that 20 bucks?”

Rose’s biggest passion was the Veterans. Having a son, who served several tours in Afghanistan and Iraq. She was no stranger to the effects of PTSD. She reached her hand out anyway she could to any Veteran in need. She was very proud and loved her red, white and blue.

Left to cherish her memory as a loving mother is Stephen (Christina) Farr, Samantha Cole, Dan (Belinda) Cole II, Michael (Patty) Cole. She was affectionally known as “Nena” to her eight grandchildren: Matt Farr, Lyssa Howard, Corey and Andrew Farr, Mariah Cole, Skyy Currier, Paige Cole and Sarina Cole. She is the proud great grandmother of Aaron, Lily, and Adam but the apple of her eye called her “Carla”, her great granddaughter Alleah Rust, and a fifth on the way, Ryder Rust. Her sisters, Donna Winney of Greenfield, NY, and Linda Dashiell of Colorado.

A celebration of Rose's life will be held on Saturday, July 11, 2020 from 1pm to 5pm at the Glens Falls VFW 30 Cooper St. Glens Falls, NY 12801. Please bring your own dish.

Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family.

Goodbye Little Rosie , You always made me laugh and I cried when you moved. There will never be anyone like you again. Always Cheerful and ready with a joke. I will never forget how excited you were when Elvis ( aka Joe Ramsay ) came to play here at the Cedars Complex. Children of Rose, your Mom was such a source of comfort to me when my Sister Valerie died and Rose always reminded me or her as they were both very tiny women and smokers. She Loved her Family fiercely and was very proud of all of you. Take comfort in your wonderful Memories of Rose. Much Love and Prayers Rose , you are with your Son now and will Mourn No More. Your Dear Friend , Beatrice Didio Cedars Apts. Bldg 2

Although I never met Rose in person, I spent many hours with her playing Family Farm on Facebook. We had so much fun and was such a team together...also with others...She always kept us laughing and always worked hard to do her part...I know she put as much time and effort in her job before she retired because even though she was retired she put her heart and soul in everything she did.. especially playing our little game...I had many phone conversations with her and I will miss her terribly...She loved her family so very much and talked about them a lot.....especially the grandchildren and the great......and loved her Peppa...I will so look forward to meeting her in heaven ...RIP my dear friend....RIP

When I was barely 4 mos. sober, I lost Rose's son who played an integral part in helping me stay sober. I didn't think I could go on but Rose reached out her hand to me and took over where Scott left off. I had renewed hope and a new friend. Rose was so proud of me that she gave me my 6 month coin. I don't know what I would have done without her. I am so grateful that she came into my life. So grateful that I fell in love with her son Dan and this past year she became my mother in law. Love you Mom. I'm going to miss you.
