Brenda was born in Sumter, SC on August 26, 1964. She relocated with her daughter, Brandy, to Graham, NC after meeting the love of her life, her husband, Chase. She helped build and operate the family’s garden center for over 20 years. Brenda enjoyed beach vacations, reading, and was an avid movie-goer. She delighted in listening and dancing to music, laughing with friends and family, and cuddling with her fur-babies, Abby and Casper. Her pride and joy was her grandson, Rocco, and she treasured every moment spent with him since his birth in September 2015. Brenda was the anchor and guiding light of her family, and words cannot express how deeply she will be missed.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the DCI Sarcoma Fund at Duke Cancer Institute, 710 W. Main St., Suite 200, Durham, NC 27701 or online at www.gifts.duke.edu.
