Our dear mother, daughter, soon to be grandmama, sister, aunt and friend, Brenda Faye Cruz, 56, of Rocky Point passed gently from her earthly life on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 at Lower Cape Fear Hospice Care Center.
She was born September 12, 1962 in Pender County, the daughter of Linda Lou Garner Watkins and the late Daniel Watkins.
In addition to her mother, Brenda leaves to cherish her sweet memory her daughter, Linda Cruz with her baby girl to be born in June; son, Noel Cruz; sister, Linda Kay Watkins; brothers, Johnny Watkins (Marsh) and Daniel “Dickie” Watkins (Gwen); and many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Brenda was a light and a joy in this world, spreading cheer where ever she went. She went about daily singing, dancing and telling you she loved you. Many folks were touched by her caring God given nature and she cared for some folks from cradle to grave. She was kindhearted, loved children, and would share anything she owned, including her time. Most of all Brenda loved her family and was so looking forward to the birth of her granddaughter in June. Brenda’s radiant smile, warm heart and sweet, sweet spirit will be greatly missed.
A Celebration of Life in remembrance of Brenda will be 1 to 5:00 p.m., Sunday, March 3, 2019 at Rocky Point Community Building, 17808 NC Hwy 210, Rocky Point, NC.
