Brenda was a well-respected educator by her peers and also a devoted advocate for the children she was entrusted to educate. Additionally, she was an adjunct instructor at both Nashville State Community College and Austin Peay State University. She was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother and her Christian beliefs were evident in her kindness toward her fellow humanity.
