Brenda Jo Pope, born August 15,1939 to the late John Felton Pope and wife Mary Jo Pope (Hayse) in Old Hickory, TN. Proud to grow up in a small, company town and lucky to have graduated from DuPont High School in 1957 during the rock and roll golden age. Brenda graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Applied Art, where she was President of Chi Omega Sorority. As a career graphic designer and art director she especially loved book design, advertising print, television art direction and corporate design projects. The curriculum at Auburn gave her a long love of creative projects of all kinds. It was a good life to live and to make friends with others who shared the interests of creative life. Brenda was preceded in death by her loving parents as well as her brother Charles Monty Pope ('15). Brenda is survived by sister-in-law Patricia (Pace) Pope, nephews John (Traci) Pope, Spencer (Kristi) Pope, great nieces and nephews Kennedy and Garrett Pope and Carter, Caroline and Tanner Pope as well as many close friends and extended family. Private services will be held. The Rev. Cynthia L. Seifert will officiate.
