Brenda Carol Valentine
September 4, 1953 ~ August 1, 2020 (age 66)
On Saturday, August 1, 2020, beloved mother and grandmother, Brenda Carol Valentine returned to the arms of the Lord at the age of 66.
Her graveside service was held on Saturday August 8, 2020 at 2:00 pm at Good Sheperd Cemetery in Middleburg, Tn with Pastor Blanche Cox in charge and Dixie Funeral Home (www.dixiefuneralhome.com) was in charge of the professional service.
Brenda was born on September 4th, 1953 in Medina, Ohio to Eddie Valentine Sr. and Jeannie Thomas. She spent her formative years in Bolivar, Tennessee. Though she only reached the sixth-grade education, she prospered in life and successfully raised one son Ricky and two daughters, Nicole and Yolanda. Through her children, she became a grandmother and great-grandmother and though there were many, she managed to equally love them and promote their individuality. She loved to cook, play cards, and travel but in her words to smell some gas. A fashionista in her own right she made sure to instill in her family the importance of selfcare, getting their hair done, and looking good even when you didn’t feel like it. She also was a pillar who strived to make sure her family knew the importance of having their own voice and standing up for themselves. In her later years, she returned to her roots and became a born again Christian and built several successful friendships to last lifetime.
