Brenda Sue Combs
June 30, 1949 - February 27, 2017

Brenda Sue Coleman Combs was born June 30, 1949 in Dumas, Texas and passed away at the age of 67 on February 27, 2017.

Brenda’s legacy includes her four daughters, Mia Bowman, Marissa Dillard, Dawn Combs and Brissy Combs; mother, Linda Luman; sister, Donna King; brother, Kem Coleman; nine grandchildren, Alex, Hayley, Kyle, Christina, Braden, Lacey, Lily, Brielle and Chloe; and countless others whose lives she touched. She was preceded in death by her father, Roland Coleman and her grandparents, Dorcus and Ernest Slape.

Brenda had been a resident of Van since 2004, formerly residing in Washington State. She was a geriatric and clinic nurse for twenty years and had recently returned to work with Visiting Angels. She was charismatic, light-hearted, utterly selfless and self-sufficient, but nothing more than a compassionate and loving woman. The foundation of her life was her Lord and Savior, and her family. She most recently attended First Baptist Church of Van and the Church of Garden Valley, and made her fellowship a priority in whatever place she found herself. She touched countless lives over the course of her extremely full life. Her light shined bright and she will be deeply missed.
