She graduated from Kempsville High School and attended Radford University and graduated from Old Dominion University. She later full filled her accounting degree from Christopher Newport. Brenda served The Salvation Army for over 25 years retiring as an Internal Auditor.

Brenda grew up in a military family, which is where she found her love of travel.... from her cruise excursions and mini get-a-ways with great friends to family vacations at the beach and even a trip to Ireland with her mom. Brenda had such a contagious laugh that people around her couldn’t help but laugh too.

Besides her mother she is survived by her husband Billy Ray Savage; daughters Shannon Taylor and Kelly Outlaw; grandchildren Morgan Taylor, Caitlin Outlaw, and Lauren Outlaw; Aunts Juanita Smiley, and Janice Irby-Snead; Uncles Don Wilkerson (Betty) and Robert Keegan.

Brenda has been my life long friend since 4th grade. Our hearts are hurting tonight for Billy, the girls and all of her family and friends. I know she opened her eyes in heaven this morning, meeting Jesus face to face. We will have a sweet reunion there.
