Sister Betty Cornell Brooks was the third child of Alice R. Brooks and the late Benjamin H. Brooks.  She was born in Oak Ridge, Tenn. at Oak Ridge Hospital on Feb. 21, 1966.
Sister Betty spent most of her life in Cleveland, Ohio where she met her husband,
Dr. Herman L. Boone, and attended school.  She graduated from Collinwood High
School and later attended the Ohio School of Culinary Arts.  She received an associate degree in culinary arts. 
Williams Chapel Church in Cleveland is where she gave her life to Christ at an early age.  During that time, she was a very active member.  After she moved to Helena-West Helena she was not fortunate enough to actually find a new church home, but she did attend Allen Temple AME Church and Greater Powerhouse C.O.G.I.C.  Sister Betty’s lovely life ended on Tuesday, March 23, 2010 at UAMS Medical Center in Little Rock.
She leaves to cherish her memories, her mother, Alice Brooks of Oak Ridge; her husband, Herman Boone of Helena-West Helena; two children, Alicen Boone and Jullian Boone, both of Helena-West Helena; three brothers, Benjamin Brooks of Columbus, Ohio, Willie Joe Brooks and Brian K. Brooks, both of Oak Ridge; and a long list of other relatives and friends.
