March 1, 1952 – March 13, 2019
Brenda K. Bollinger passed away on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at Hospice Brazos Valley Inpatient Facility in Bryan after suffering a stroke earlier in the week. She was 67. Born and raised in Farmington, MO, a very small town just south of St. Lewis, to her parents, Henry and Lois Taplin Bollinger. Brenda moved to Bryan with her family back in the 70’s. She was employed as a Sacker at Kroger for many years and retired from there to battle throat cancer, which she beat, but not without a toll. She loved horses, her dogs, dream-catchers, playing scratch offs, and Elvis! Brenda was a private person, never having children. She had dear neighbors and others who helped her in so many ways over the years, and thank you all for that.
She is survived by her bothers, Verlin Ray and Gary Bollinger; sweet little children that she loved and babysat many years ago, Cody and his sister; and her dear and loyal friend, Karen.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Hospice Brazos Valley, 502 W. 26th St., Bryan, TX 77803. They provide a much needed service to those in need.
The family will receive friends from 4-5 p.m. Friday, March 22nd with the Memorial Service to follow at 5 p.m. at Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers, 3001 S. College Avenue, Bryan, TX.
