Brenda Faye Adams, a loving wife, mother, and grandmother, passed away on December 11, 2023, in her hometown of Beaufort County, NC. Born and raised in this close-knit community, Brenda touched the lives of many through her genuine care and spirited nature.

Throughout her life, Brenda excelled in her work experiences at Hamilton Beach, Stanadyne, National Spinning, and Eastern Carolina University. She was dedicated and hardworking, always striving for excellence in everything she did.

When Brenda wasn't busy building her career, her true joy came from spending time with her beloved grandchildren. They were her everything, her pride and joy. The moments shared with them brought immeasurable happiness and warmth to her heart.

Brenda's love for her family was unparalleled. Married to her soulmate Johnnie Earl Adams for 47 years, the bond they shared was inseparable. Brenda led a private life, never seeking the spotlight, yet she was always the most important person in the room, silently guiding and supporting her loved ones.

Her children held a special place in her heart, and she devoted herself to their happiness and wellbeing. Brenda's love and care knew no bounds, and her children found strength and inspiration in her unwavering support.

Known for her affection towards dogs, Brenda found solace and companionship in their loyal presence. She believed that the unconditional love of a pet could bring immeasurable joy and comfort during life's journeys.

Brenda's memory will be cherished by her adoring family. She is survived by her loving husband Johnnie Earl Adams, Sr., her son Johnnie Earl Adams, Jr., her daughter Brandy Rena Adams (Fiancée Travis Sherrod), and her sister Theresa Kaye Hackney (Ken). Brenda will also be remembered fondly by her grandson Austin Chase Adams and granddaughter Layla Lynn Adams.

She was preceded in death by her father, Joseph Samuel Holman, mother, Falby Jo Holman, daughter, Crystal Gail Holman, and her brother, Joseph Samuel Holman, Jr..

As per Brenda's wishes, no public services will be held. Her loved ones will gather together privately to honor her memory and celebrate the beautiful life she lived.
