Brenda was a devoted servant of Jesus Christ. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church where she was a Deacon, Sunday school teacher, and helped prepare Communion for the congregation. She worked over 18 years at The Learning Center Preschool as the Assistant Director. She enjoyed helping children flourish their relationships with Jesus Christ and her daily chats with the teachers in the office. She was a constant companion to so many, always lending an encouraging word and ear to those that needed it. Her positive outlook and sparkle in her blue eyes let everyone know that everything was “all good”. She enjoyed traveling with friends and family to the beach. Most of all, Brenda loved her family. They were always her number one priority and she treasured being “Boo” to her grandson, Carter Paul.
