Obituary

Brenda Kirby, age 64, of Owingsville, passed away on January 20 at her residence, surrounded by her loving family. She was born on August 24, 1957 in Montgomery County, Kentucky to the late James Lee Hendrix Sr. and Sadie Nunn Hendrix. Brenda was a member of the Grace Gospel Tabernacle Church. She loved to attend church and had a strong faith in the Lord. She was a wonderful mother that loved her children dearly and was always there to protect and guide them. Being a homemaker and a grandmother were two of her favorite things. She loved to care for others and was always willing to help. Working in her garden, tending to her flowers and mowing the yard were her favorite things. She also enjoyed playing the guitar, cooking and sewing. She made several costumes for her children that they adored. Brenda was a strong woman that put up a good fight and never lost sight of the important things. Her loving heart and kind personality will be missed dearly by those she leaves behind. May her family forever remember the things she taught them, the love she had for them and her faith in the Lord.
