Brenda Malone, 68, of Charleston, SC, left us, holding the hand of her eldest daughter, April Malone, on November 21st.
Brenda Malone was born November 5th 1954 in Savannah, GA to the late JW and Jewell Chancey. She graduated from Groves Highschool in Garden City, GA and later went on to attend Armstrong State College in Savannah, GA. She worked at Morrison Cafeteria in Garden City, GA. After marrying the love of her life in 1975, Brenda moved to South Carolina where she worked for Mother's Care, Sears for over 30 years, Food Lion, and finally Office Depot for 10 years before finally becoming fully retired in February of 2020 to spend time with her family.
It was in Savannah that Brenda met her lifelong partner Tony, with whom she celebrated 47 years of beautiful marriage and parented her two daughters, April and Gaylen Malone. Their marriage is proof that sometimes blind dates do work out.
Brenda's hobbies included fishing, camping, dancing, singing, reading romance novels, spending time with family and friends, cross stitching, and enjoying a good meal.
