On May 19, 2012, in Pensacola at Southern Oaks Nursing Home, the Lord reached down and plucked a beautiful flower from His garden and said, "Welcome Home, my faithful servant."
Brenda was born in Pensacola to Stoner and Elsie Mae Jones on June 14, 1949. She was a graduate at Washington Senior High School of 1967. Brenda was an only child who was affectionately known as "Doe Doe" to her close friends.
Brenda later married Horace Boyd Jr. in 1968 and to this union was a blessing of one daughter.
Brenda was an independent, smart, and loving person. She was a very hard worker and full of laughter from the time of birth as well as an outstanding nurse. She attended PJC and graduated from the nursing school. She started her working life at Escambia General Hospital and worked for years until she became ill with lupus. Brenda did not let that stop her from caring for people.
Brenda joined Mt. Olive Baptist Church along with her family and was baptized under the leadership of the late Rev. Bass. She later accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior according to Romans 10:9.
Brenda fellowshipped with Mt. Olive Baptist Church for years. She was a member of so many organizations. She taught Sunday School, was in the women's choir, and was a member of the Red Hats. She also served as an active missionary.
Brenda faithfully served her duties until her health no longer allowed her to participate, however she did volunteer her services when her health would let her. She was a very caring person always looking out for others before herself.
She was preceded in death by: her brother, Steven Wiggins; her aunt, Annie Ree Wiggins; her grandparents, Ed and Mable Malden; a special woman and cousin, Ida Mae Wiggins; and a very special, loving cousin and friend, Gaynell Michaels.
She will be cherished in the hearts of those she left behind: her loving parents, Stoner and Elsie Jones of Pensacola; daughter, Kimberly Boyd and a precious granddaughter, Rasheeda Ellis both of Sherman, TX; three aunts, Freda (David) Murphy, Faye Slaughter and Diann Odom all of Pensacola; a special cousin, Pamela Michaels; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
