Brenda Kay Brooks Ramsey Wilson, 67, entered into her promised rest in the presence of her Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, April 17, 2017. Born July 11, 1949 in Elizabethton, Tenn., she had called Piney Flats, Tenn. home for the past 38 years. Brenda was the daughter of the late Charles Cyril Brooks and Maxine Campbell Brooks Greer.
Brenda worked many jobs in her lifetime including 21 years as a beautician but her favorite was at the Johnson City Medical Center as a kitchen aide and interacting with patients as hostess for six years. Her most important work was being a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. She was a member of Grace Baptist Church, Elizabethton. All who knew her agreed — Brenda was so easy to love!
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, David Ramsey; two brothers, Frank Brooks and Randy Brooks; and one niece, Robin Brooks. She joyfully looked forward to meeting these again in her heavenly home.
