She worked in the food industry and retail sales; most would know her from her days at a local restaurant or Handy Mart. In her spare time, she enjoyed cooking, she was especially good at making biscuits, and gardening vegetables and flowers. She was recognized in the local newspaper for her gardening.

She is survived by her loving children, Richard Hammond (Christy), Annie “Vicky” Collins, Brenda Kuzan (Joe) and Norman Foster, Jr. all of Sneads Ferry; brother, Chesley Brooks (Karen) of Stem; grandchildren, Chasity Collins, Johnny Collins, Carolyn Foster, and Joseph Kuzan; great-grandchildren, Leonidas and Caleesi Franklin.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Ronald Brooks and grandson, Anthony Dunn.

To know Brenda is to know how much she loved her family, she was the type to never meet a stranger and if you wanted to know anything about the town, she knew everything!
