Brenda J. Peelman was born August 5th, 1964 to Gordon and the late Wanda Peelman in Cincinnati, Ohio. She had two children, Aaron Peelman and Nathan Peelman, who passed away from premature complications. Brenda also had two beautiful grand-daughters, Sariah and Ka’li that she loved unconditionally, they were her pride and joy. Brenda was the 5th child born out of 7. Her siblings are Larry Peelman, Pamela Earls, Donna Janson, Sally Stewart, Melody Mason, Michael Peelman. She had a special, but different kind of love for each of them and believe me they love her so much. Sally and Pam cared for her medically until the end. Donna would FaceTime with Brenda to keep her company during the day. Michael, Pam and her niece, Trenetta, were there with her as she went home to be with God.
Brenda passed away October 8, 2020 at Mercy West Hospital surrounded by her loved ones. The ones that couldn’t be there physically were there by phone. She lost her battle with many long-time illnesses at the young age of 56 years of age. She fought so hard for so long and suffered a lot, but now she doesn’t have to do that any longer.
Brenda had a special love for each niece and nephew she had. She would always have a shoulder to cry on and a hug for them. She would always smile or say something to make us smile and tell us everything will be okay, just have faith and pray. Then she would always end the conversation with “I love you to the moon and back” we all knew how to answer it we would say "and again and again" she would never hang up and say goodbye, she didn’t believe in goodbyes. Brenda wasn’t only a family member, she was a best friend.
Brenda had a smile that would lighten up the sky, make the sunshine brighter, she would make flowers bloom just by walking by; "man we will miss your smile". Before she left us she always sat at the kitchen table with her sister Sally looking at the birds, squirrels and chipmunks she would say the red cardinal was Ralph her late brother-in-law and she would wave; the other cardinal was Sally. She loved those birds and white butterflies. Brenda would always say "I want to go sit by the ocean with sand between my toes". Now she can.
Brenda had a heart of gold, she was the kindest person you would ever meet, she was someone I always looked up to cause she was so strong. She will be missed by everyone. In closing, although her death may have taken her from us it can’t stop the relationship we all had with her. She would want us to smile and rejoice that she is now at peace and her memory will always live with us. Rest in peace, we will always love you to the moon and back and again and again. We love you Aunt Brenda. (written by Angela on behalf of the family)
