Brenda and I met when we both lived in Northern Virginia and attended the same church. We have been friends for 30 years. When I think of her, I think of her smile and cheerfulness. She loved the Lord and had such wisdom. I admired her talent for working with numbers, and for playing the guitar. She was a precious friend I will miss. My prayers go out to her dad, brothers and sisters-in-law, as well as, her extended family. She loved you all so deeply! May God comfort your hearts.

Wes Taylor says:

My daughter was special and in my mind had no equals. She was taken from us at an early age. Upon realizing her condition she met the challenge with optimism and determination to win the battle. There were never complaints or fear. She was totally prepared and committed to her Lord Jesus Christ. She has an untold no of friends during her journey through school,career, church and just plain folks. I can’t envision my life life without her it. I loved her so much.

Love to all of the Taylor’s

Brenda and I only met once or twice and knew each other threw our parents. What I remember most about Brenda was her solid faith and compassion. I feel for you Wes and the rest of your family as you grieve her loss.

Gwen Dudley says:

I was always amazed at Brenda’s insight and wisdom in so many areas. Her concern for the well being of others was shown with prayer and action. I know our Lord was pleased with her Christian service on earth. I was inspired by her faith. Brenda will be missed and remembered for her example of a godly woman.

My prayers are with Brenda’s family. I met Brenda at Church and served with her for many years. She was a special lady who delighted in helping many people. She loved the Lord and is now safely Home. We will miss her.

Lauri Lanier says:

Brenda was always so helpful with benevolence needs here at Stonebriar Community Church. She was also always eager to help people with budgeting assistance. I know that many are grateful for her help. I loved her gently, funny spirit and will miss her. I am so sorry for your loss and will be praying for the family.

Gail (Lanier) Hutchins says:

Brenda and I have been friends for many years. We met in Northern Virginia and attended the same church. We shared many dinners together talking encouraging each other and laughing. Unfortunately, we lost touch when she moved to Texas. Several years ago I was on a business trip in Texas, called Brenda and she drove an hour to met me for dinner. It was wonderful to she her again, share dinner and pick up our friendship. I will miss Brenda. Can’t wait to see you in heaven, my friend.

Frank-JoAnne Knell says:

We didn’t know her personally, but knew her through her father, Wes. He is one of our favorite beings on Earth, and he told us many times of her intelligence, humor, ability to help other beings, and love. We salute her, and offer more of our love and condolences to him.

Sandra Taylor Moore says:

I am so grateful for meeting my cousin at a family reunion in Iowa in 1991. We were fortunate to travel to Iowa and be together at Aunt Lynn’s several times over the years. We always enjoyed our visits so much and vowed to keep in touch. She was a dear cousin and friend. It is sad to know I cannot contact her but I am truly happy to know we will in heaven. I love you Uncle Wes and Taylor family.

Kelli Castro says:

I worked with Brenda for many years. We both went in different directions but still kept in touch occasionally. I only just now realized she had passed away. I’ll always remember Brenda as someone who was so intentional. Intentional about improving situations at work, about expanding her skillset and learning new things, about putting good out into the world through her church or training as a counselor, and about loving her family who she talked about often. She was a good person and will be missed. Condolences to her friends and family.

Melody Copeland says:

I only just heard about Brenda’s passing, I am so sorry to hear this. We first started working together in the 1040 GoSystem group in 1987. My favorite memory is waiting in line at Taylor’s Bookstore on Beltline Road in Addison for 2.5 hours TX to buy Jiimy Stewart”s book & get his autograph. It was a longer lunch than we thought it would be, but we had such fun! The last time Brenda & I got together was in 2019. I hadn’t heard from her since Covid started.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
