Brenda was born to parents, Carmen, and Amon Heflin, on March 17, 1948. Her mother chose Brenda's first name after deciding that she really liked the name of a popular comic character of the day, 'Brenda Starr'. There was no 'Starr' attached to Brenda's name, but all who knew and loved her would be in agreement that she was, indeed, a star of the first magnitude in their lives. She was a funny, smart, devoted, and loving wife, mother, sister, and friend. She will be greatly missed.
Brenda is survived by her husband and partner, Danny Adrian, along with her two sons, Alan Colwell and Brian Colwell, Brian's partner, Belinda (Belle) Casiano, and grandchildren, Astrid 5, Sonny 3, and Esme 3 months old. She also leaves behind her sisters, Betty MacFarland and Bobbie Wofford, and brother, Harvey Heflin. In addition, 'Aunt Kay' will be fondly remembered by her seven nieces, Darlene MacFarland, Sheree Motley, Janice Gonzalez, Patty Koonce, Terri Story, Rita Smith, and Ronda Burt.
