Brenda's motto throughout the last months of her life was Philippians 4:6. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." Her constant request was for everyone who knew her on earth to meet up with her later in Heaven.
Brenda was preceded in death by her parents, Raymond and Irene Bailey, and her brother-in-law, Carroll Allen.
She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Angela Grasty-Cox of Bullard, and her husband, Chris; sons, Michael Grasty and Matt Hampton of Tyler; daughter, Ashley Estrada of Chandler, and her husband, Octavio.
Her beautiful grandchildren are Bailey and Brayden Cox, Julian and Aiden Estrada.
