If you don't receive a reply for obit in Hale Co, TX, try RAOGK (Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness) site. There are a couple of volunteers listed for Hale Co. One will do record/obit lookups.

On the 1930 census they show a five year old son named Eugene E. Brooks.

From SSDI, this might be the same one:

Brooks, Eugene E., b 4 Oct 1924; d 18 Jun 2002; last residence Amarillo, Randall Co, TX; SS card issued in TX.

Since you knew dates of death I thought you'd probably seen DCs for Wm and Vestal. The informant on her DC is Eugene E. Brooks, her son.
