Brenda Gail Parker

She was born on January 17, 1948 in Ramer, TN to Mancil and Francis Dickey and graduated high school in Guys, TN. Brenda went to work at ITT early on before becoming a beautician. She was a hardworking individual who eventually retired from Caterpillar after 20 years with the IT department.

Brenda loved her family dearly and cherished spending time with them. She enjoyed making Christmas candy every year that was enjoyed by all. Her family would gather together at her house every Sunday to spend meal time together.

Brenda's hobbies included quilting, word search puzzles, cooking, and even mowing her yard. She lived her life as an independent woman who accomplished many things but her proudest accomplishment was the time that she spent with her children and grandchildren.
