November 20, 1948 - December 25, 2020
Her life journey began on Saturday, November 20, 1948. Brenda Denyse Knight was blessed to her parents of Eddie William (mother) and Hollwell Herron (father) in Kinloch, Missouri. Brenda was the eldest of two. Her younger brother, Albert, preceded her in death. Brenda’s first encounter with Christ was at First Missionary Baptist Church of Kinloch. Brenda would fully embrace her spiritual journey by becoming a member of Metro Christian Worship Center under the Bishop Raphael Green. Brenda was a master of pivoting when life threw curve balls her way. Brenda was always aware that her children were watching her build a legacy. She decided to pursue her education and returned to college, graduating with her Master’s Degree from Webster University. Choosing to leave corporate America, Brenda turned her pursuits to entrepreneurship; founding both Refine and Design Careers, as well as a joint venture with her husband, Excellence in Transportation. With the freedom that both ventures brought, Brenda was able to develop her love of public speaking and writing. Brenda enjoyed all of aspects of life, believing that even in your darkest moments can come your greatest lessons. Brenda would always leave her mark in every room she entered and was always giving inspiration of love, confidence, and hope at the right moment you needed it. Brenda was a beloved wife, a phenomenal mother, and a great friend. In the early hours of Christmas morning, Brenda departed our Earthly realm, leaving us to be embraced by her loving parents, Eddie and Hollwell; daughters, June and Rosalyn Knight; and grandson, Henderson Cooper, Jr. as she continues her spiritual walk with Christ. She leaves to cherish her memory: her husband, Larry; children, Brian Herron, Zansheree Knight, Erika Knight-Epps, Larry Ian Knight (Lee) and Adnita (Stewart) Haymon; grandchildren, Brian Armstrong, Jacinda Knight, Jarred Jones, Walter C. Smith, III, Larry Ian Knight, Jr., Sheena Haymon, Serena Haymon and Stewart Haymon, Jr.; with a host of cousins, extended family and friends that will continue to honor her memory.
