Brenda Ann West

MOORE — Brenda Ann West was born in McCamey, Texas on July 16, 1949, to Isaac Millard White and Teddy Caroline White. Shortly thereafter the family moved to Lovington N.M. where her father worked for Shell Oil Company. Brenda completed all 12 grades of school in Lovington, graduating in 1967.

She attended Eastern New Mexico University in Portales, N.M. before beginning a career in banking and medical office bookkeeping. Brenda married Eddie Don West on March 9, 1985, in Roswell N.M. The couple moved from Roswell in 1986 and lived in Big Spring, Texas for two years and Vernon, Texas for two years.

In Vernon, Brenda served as one of the church secretaries of First Baptist Church before moving to Clovis, N.M. in 1990. In Clovis, Brenda worked as financial secretary for First Baptist Church while Eddie worked at Cannon Air Force Base. In 2005 the couple moved to Norman when Eddie’s job transferred to Tinker Air Force Base.

Brenda died on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013, after a brief fight after suffering a severe stroke on Aug. 23, 2013.

Brenda was preceded in death by both parents and her only sibling, William R. White.
