Brenda Sue Carothers was born September 24, 1951, in Lafayette County, MS to the late James and Maggie Houston Carothers.
Nannie, as she was affectionately called by her family, professed a hope in Christ at an early age at East Providence M.B. Church. She later moved her membership to Second M.B. Church where she sang in the Inspirational Choir and served as an Announcement Clerk. After a few years at Second Baptist, Brenda reunited with her home church and remained a member there until her death.
Brenda received her education from Oxford Training School and graduated from Central High School in 1969. She was employed by ProMatura Group for 34 years and worked until her death.
Brenda was a source of joy to all who knew her. She always had a smile to share with those around her. Even when her health began to fail in 2013, Brenda never complained – she would always press on, smile, and pray her way through. She loved to be around her family, friends, and grandchildren. In her spare time, she enjoyed cooking, working in her flower garden, and hanging out with her family and friends.
On her birthday, Friday, September 24, 2021, and surrounded by her family, Brenda traded her earthly life for life everlasting with the Lord. Her infectious smile, humble spirit, and loving personality will truly be missed by her children, Tanya Redmond of Horn Lake, MS and Denise Carothers of Oxford, MS; five grandchildren, Demarius Carothers, Antonio Carothers, Antwane Carothers, Jordan (Shaniya) Carothers all of Oxford, MS and Jasmine (Spencer) Wilemon of Hamilton, AL; five great grandchildren, Brendarius Pegues of Grenada, MS, Olivia Carothers, Lennox and Shelby Wilemon all of Hamilton, AL, and Journey Carothers of Oxford, MS; siblings, Dennis (Mary) Houston of Boiling Brook, IL, James (Jackie) Carothers, Ralph Carothers, Debra Carothers, Regina Carothers all of Decatur, IL, Karl Carothers of Grand Junction, CO, Manuel Carothers of Walnut, MS, and Jannie Carothers of Oxford, MS; special niece, Stacy Houston of Valley Park, MO; special cousins, Bennie and Larry Berry of Memphis, TN; lifelong friend, William C. Redmond; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, very special friends and Promatura Group family.
