Brenda Kay Colwell-Adrian

March 17, 1948 - October 13, 2020


Brenda Kay Colwell Adrian left this Earth in the early morning hours of October 13, 2020, to begin her journey into the heavenly realms of her God, and accompanied by her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

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.

Visitation will be held for family members on Monday, October 19, 2020, from 4PM to 5 PM. Visitation will be held for the public on Monday, October 19, 2020, from 6PM to 8PM.

A Memorial will be scheduled later, to be held at Wimberley Church of Christ.
