She was the daughter of the late Mr. Ernest Pinckney, Jr. and Elizabeth Gillard Pinckney, who she leaves to cherish her fond memories. Brenda had the sweetest spirit and a wonderful personality that everyone loved. Brenda was a very humble person and such a giver to all she came in contact with. She never met a stranger, and to know her was to love her. She will truly be missed by all who love her, truly another chain has been broken in our family.
