Hagar, Brenda A. Brenda Allen Hagar of Dallas, Texas died Monday, July 19th at her home. Born on October 14, 1970, she was the daughter of William E. "Bill" and Barbara Allen and grew up in Hereford, Texas. She married her high school sweetheart and the love of her life Kelby Hagar in 1992 after they graduated from Angelo State University, where she earned a BA in elementary education. They moved to Cambridge, MA and Brenda began teaching while Kelby attended law school. In 1995 they moved to Dallas where she taught for many years at The Hockaday School in both a full-time and substitute capacity. Her students adored her. Whether it was 2nd grade math or 7th grade humanities, Mrs. Hagar's class was always the highlight of the day for the students. Their son Trent was born in 1998 and became the center of Brenda's world. She was his greatest champion and organized his sports teams and planned events for him that are too numerous to measure. She never missed a game and celebrated every achievement and milestone. Brenda was thoughtful and generous to everyone she met. When a friend had a need, she was there to "put it in gear" and deliver - she never would take "no" for an answer. She cherished her many friendships, many of them lifelong friends. Brenda lived, loved and laughed abundantly with her trademark giggle. Never one to shy away from laughing at herself, she was a humble soul who always put others first, especially her family. Brenda was a past member of the Dallas Junior League and Dallas Young Lawyers' Association. She enjoyed volunteering at Trent's schools: both Lamplighter and The Parish Episcopal School. She was always eager and willing to help whenever and wherever she was needed. Brenda is survived by her husband Kelby, their son Trent, her parents Barbara and Bill Allen, her brother Brent and his wife Melissa, and their daughter Mia of Austin, TX and her brother Blake and his wife Debbie from Jacksonville, FL. She is also survived by her in-laws, Shannon and Kenneth Hagar of Hereford, TX and her loving extended family. A memorial service will be held at The Hockaday School, 11600 Welch Road in Dallas on Friday, July 23, 2010 at 10:00. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to: The Lamplighter School, 11611 Inwood Road, Dallas, TX 75229
