Vale Jan Brooks

The Gippsland greyhound racing community lost a much-admired member with the recent passing of Jan Brooks.

Jan, who lived at Longwarry, passed away at the age of 77 and is survived by her husband Peter, daughter Michelle and son Paul.

Close friend Marg Campbell paid tribute to Jan, affording special mention to her love for her greyhounds and willingness to assist anyone in need.

“Jan was loved by everyone,” Marg said.

“She was a really good person who always helped anyone that needed it.

“She had greyhounds for a very long time and did have some success early on. She set up the greyhound property and built all the kennels herself.

“She loved her greyhounds; she loved any sort of animal actually. She couldn’t put any dog down and most of her greyhounds were pets, whether they were racing or not.”
