Brenda Bryant

Brenda Lee Bryant, daughter of Robert Huffman and Marjorie Huffman, was born March 17, 1957, in Houston, Missouri and passed away in Springfield, Missouri on August 6, 2017, at the age of 60.

Brenda was united in marriage to Terry Wayne Bryant on October 2, 1976, making their union together 40 years. They were blessed with three children: Cody Bryant; Christopher Bryant; and Jacqueline Bryant. Terry and Brenda were inseparable. Throughout their 40-year marriage, the two spent less than five days apart.

Brenda worked as a nurse for the St. John/Mercy Health System since March 1993. She was a dedicated employee, always arriving early and staying late. She rarely took a sick day during the span of her twenty-four year career. Brenda was committed to serving the patients in rural Howell and Shannon County and cared deeply about them. Her commitment to her patients won her a nation-wide award for Teamwork in Healthcare based on survey responses provided by patients. While her patients loved her for her friendliness, compassion, and genuine concern for others, her co-workers loved her for her reliability, work ethic, and ability to execute a clever prank.

When Brenda wasn't serving patients, Brenda loved spending time with family, especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed cooking and was known among family for her delicious dinners that brought the entire family together. She also loved online shopping for her grandkids and children; the Amazon Prime boxes were constantly rolling in but the contents of those boxes were rarely for her. She also had a knack for avoiding photographs and most photographs our family has of her were taken while she wasn't looking or after much insistence by family members.

Brenda was a wonderful daughter, wife, mother and grandmother. She is preceded in death by her father, Robert Huffman and grandson Robert Bryant.

She is survived by her husband Terry Bryant; her mother, Majorie Huffman; her children: Cody Bryant and his wife Rebecca; Christopher Bryant and his wife Codie; and Jacqueline Bryant; grandchildren: Connor Bryant, Tara Bryant, Maxen Bryant, Gabrielle Bryant, and Isobella Bryant; siblings: Kathy Daniel, Debbie Cook, Lonnie Huffman, and Michael Huffman; and a host of nieces and nephews; and a rescue dog, Carter.

Brenda was a member of First Baptist Church in Summersville, Missouri, and a faithful follower of Christ.

Brenda was so many things to so many people: nurse, friend, daughter, wife, and mother. Words cannot accurately capture who she was as a person. She left an indelible mark on so many lives and will be forever missed.

Funeral Services will be Thursday, August 10, 2017 at 10 AM at Bradford Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Jerry Baylock officiating. Visitation will be held Wednesday evening, August 9, from 6 to 8 PM at Bradford Funeral Home. Interment will be in Bethel Cemetery under the care of Bradford Funeral Home.
