Orbie and Brenda moved their family to Tennessee in April 1973. Brenda spent her days taking care of Lisa and Michael, but when they started school, she decided to enter the workforce and took a position with the Baptist Sunday School Board. After a referral from her best friend, Malinda Gaither, Brenda accepted an offer to join Lebanon Bank launching a 38-year career serving the people of Wilson County. She retired from Wilson Bank & Trust in 2017. She was privileged to serve two terms as president of Lebanon Business and Professional Women and was voted Woman of the Year for the Lebanon chapter and for the state of Tennessee. Brenda will be most remembered, though, for her passion for serving others. Upon joining Immanuel Baptist Church in the late 70's, Brenda gave time and energy to sharing Christ with children and students by teaching Sunday School, serving in the bus ministry, and as Acteens Director. When she felt led to worship at Fairview for a season, she continued her service by teaching Sunday School. She then joined some of her family at The Glade Church where she taught Sunday School and led student ministry teams ministering to hurricane victims in New Orleans. Brenda served as a volunteer for the American Cancer Society for 25 years, and she was a founding member of HOPE JOY LIGHT cancer Support Ministry. The family is extremely grateful for Dr. Michael Stany, the caring oncology staff at Ascension and Alive Hospice. Above all else, Brenda was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother who desired nothing more than to serve her Lord and teach her children to do the same.
