Born on January 15, 1964, in Wilmington, Delaware, Brenda was a shining light from the moment she came into this world. Throughout her life, Brenda exemplified what it meant to have a servant's heart. She selflessly dedicated her time and energy to serving others, always putting their needs before her own. Her unwavering commitment to helping those around her created a lasting impact on everyone blessed to know her.
At the core of Brenda's life was her deep love for her church and church family. She found solace and strength within the walls of her place of worship and actively participated in various ministries and community outreach programs. Her faith guided her every action, and she embodied the teachings of compassion, love, and kindness.
Beyond her dedication to the church community, Brenda's family held an incomparable place in her heart. Her love for them knew no bounds; it was boundless and pure. The joy she found in being a wife to her husband, Ronnie Rogers, was immeasurable. Through the ups and downs of life's journey, they stood by each other with unwavering support and devotion.
Brenda's children, Tyler M. Rogers (Kailey) and Morgan Usry (Austin), were truly blessed to call her their mother. In every moment spent with them, Brenda emanated warmth and affection that extended far beyond words. She took great pride in watching them grow into remarkable individuals who carry forward the values instilled in them by their beloved mother.

Brenda's love for them knew no limitations, and each moment spent with her grandchildren was filled with laughter and delight. She leaves behind a profound legacy of love and cherished memories.
She is survived by her loving parents, Louise Lynam Stoms and Horace "Bud" Stoms, who provided endless encouragement and unwavering support. Her siblings, Danny Stoms (Lisa) and Sharon Perdue (Wright), held a special place in Brenda's heart as they shared a lifetime of precious memories.
