Brenda Kay Denny, age 50 of Delaware passed away at home Thursday, December 3, 2015 following a long battle with T-cell Lymphoma cancer since 2010.
She was born on March 9, 1965 in Delaware to the late Richard E. Heineman and Ruby E. (Bennett) Howard of Delaware. After graduating from Delaware Hayes High School in 1983 she earned an associate arts degree from The Ohio State University. For 20 years she worked as a STNA at Arbors of Delaware.
Fiercely independent her life centered around her family. She was a wonderful baker and cook. All that she made was good; especially her fried chicken and mashed potatoes. She also enjoyed tending to her garden and yard. With a fondness towards Amish country she took a liking to their many crafts and homemade goods.
Always ambitious she collected candles and angels. She treasured time spent caring for the elderly and grandchildren. Never one to ask for anything, she will be remembered for her independence, caring ways, unique personality and love of family.
Brenda is survived by daughters Tosha Heineman of Delaware and Brandy Heineman (Jeff Riffle) of Richwood, grandchildren Cassius, Lillian, Cy, and Joseph, and Brittney Mitchell whom she considered her own granddaughter, James Denny the father of her children, brother Richard Heineman of Morrow County, sisters Bonnie Campbell, Carol Heineman, Connie DeWitt, Diane Cooke, Debbie Coleman, aunt Evelyn Mattox, dear friend Eva Jacobs and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to her father she was also preceded in death by her sister Mary Lou Bennett, father of Tosha’s son Cassius; Virgil Mitchell III, best friend Sonja Brewer, and niece Mary Ellen Jo Coffman.
