Brenda, wife-mother-grandmother and mother-in-law, passed away peacefully Jan. 29, 2020 surrounded by her beloved friends and family at the age of 69.
Born in Monroe, N.C., June 5, 1950 by Gerald Alexander Laney and Martha Azalea Jenkins Laney, she ended her journey in Trinidad. She is now reunited with her daughter Jessica Leigh Stevenson, sister Susan Laney and her mother and father.
Her graceful spirit will be missed by her husband of 43 years James (Jim) S. Stevenson, sons Adam L. Stevenson and Richard A. Stevenson, their wives Casey and Roxann and her precious grandchildren James S. Stevenson, II, Eric A. Stevenson, Dallas M. Stevenson, Jessica L. Stevenson and Sarah E. Stevenson. She will also be dearly missed by her older brother Gerald (Kent) Laney, his wife Charlotte and Brenda’s sister Victoria Laney.
Her greatest passions were education, reading, singing, traveling and most of all her family. She enjoyed being a member of her church choir and playing bridge with her friends.
Funeral services were held Feb. 8, 2020 at Cedar Creek Lake United Methodist Church in Tool followed by a gathering afterwards reminiscing and honoring the life of Brenda, an angel on earth who rejoined her eternal place in God’s heavenly choir.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to M.D. Anderson Cancer institute, a place that gave her comfort and hope even in her final days.
