Brenda Kay Brady, age 67, of Tyler, Texas passed away on Sunday July 28, 2019. Brenda was born November 24, 1951 to Johnnie and John F. Brady.

Brenda had a big heart in caring for others, which is why she built her career into nursing. She first was an RN in Florida but came back home to Texas to care for her grandfather and parents before their passing. Brenda was extremely intelligent and became a medical billing code specialist as well. Even though she didn't have any children of her own aside from her dog, Lady, she loved spending time and spoiling her nieces and nephews. She also had a passion for quilting.

Brenda is survived by her brother John R. (Mary) Brady; niece Jennifer (Jeremieh) Miller; nephew Chris (Angie) Brady; great nephews Jonathan, Jackson, Marshall and Liam; great niece Ella and a very close friend Dottie Stetler.

Brenda is preceded in death by her mother and father Johnnie O. Hanson and John F. Brady; grandparents J.R. and Clemmie Hanson; grandmother Ada Brady and her beloved dog Lady.

A celebration of Brenda's life will be held Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 10:00 am at Tyler Memorial Funeral Home officiated by Shane Ogdie. Following the funeral service the burial is at Tyler Memorial Cemetery.

During my tenure as Vice President of the East Texas region of Texas Home Health/Accent Care I had the privilege and honor to have Brenda as the Director of Nurses under the direction of Collin Bracken, Executive Director of the Tyler Branch office. Brenda was a loyal and dedicated nurse. She lead by example never asking her staff to complete any task that she was not willing to do herself. Brenda was relentless in ensuring her staff place patient care as their number one priority. Brenda was truly called to be a Registered Nurse, she will be truly missed!
My heart, thoughts and prayers are with Brenda's family.
