Brenda H. Person

June 20, 1957 ~ October 27, 2021 (age 64)


Brenda Hines Person was born on June 20, 1957 in Opp, Alabama to the late Alphonso Purvis and the late Viola Hines Bowick.  She passed away peacefully at her home in Brantley, Alabama on October 27, 2021.  Brenda was a great dancer and loved dancing with her husband and children.  All whom loved her will never forget her beauty, her ability to make you laugh, her charm. It is believed that Brenda left her daughters her sense of humor and their inheritance knowingly referred to as “Buzzard Guts”.    Rest assured that after a respectable time has passed we will be placing some items on “Buy, Sell and Trade.”  We are not using this for a free yard sale ad, but an obituary for a great woman.
Brenda Hines Person was born on June 20, 1957 to Alphonso Purvis and Viola Hines Bowick, who preceded her in death.  She was also preceded in death by one brother, Grover Purvis and one sister, Peggy Clark. Brenda wore many hats:  wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend.  She was well known for not holding back her opinion and a knack for telling it like it is.  She loved to laugh, make the people around her laugh and outwardly told you the truth even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear.  Brenda had a warm heart and was a superstar on the dance floor and in the kitchen, talents she inherited from the great dancers and cooks in her family. Brenda will be greatly missed.  She is survived by her husband, Malcolm Person(who she affectionately called “Big Dog”); three daughters: Donna “Peaches” Brundidge, Sylvania “Cream” (Randy) Anderson, and Katrenia (Danyall) Brundidge, five grandchildren: NiKenya Rayborn, Dorian Daniels, Trinton Brundidge,  Travary Bonam and Randy “RJ” Anderson, Jr. ,  two great grandchildren: Lola and Janiyah,  four brothers:  Hubert Hines, Alfred (Netta) Purvis, Willie “Jaybird” (Marietta) Hines, Calvin (Shelitha) Hines and Reginald “Eric” Jones.  She also leaves to mourn her passing a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. All whom loved her will agree that she left us too soon and we will never forget her beauty, her charm and her ability to make us laugh.
