Brenda Love 78, a beloved mother, grandmother, and sister, passed away peacefully at her home in Utica, Kentucky, on July 15, 2023. Brenda Gail Evans was born March 19, 1945, in McLean County, Kentucky to the late William Henry and Lannie Bell Crabtree Evans and was married her sweetheart, Fred W. Love August 13, 1960. They shared a blissful marriage of 57 years until his passing on May 9, 2018. As a devoted homemaker, Brenda created a warm, welcoming home for her husband and their three children. A member of the Pentecostal Faith, Brenda found great joy in attending church.
She was a living example of her belief, embodying love, kindness, and generosity in all her interactions. In addition to her deep faith, Brenda's greatest joy came from spending time with her family and friends. She greatly enjoyed the simple pleasures of life - a good conversation, a shared meal, or a quiet moment with a loved one. Her home was a hub of warmth and hospitality, a place where everyone felt welcome.
Brenda will be remembered for her friendly nature and her unwavering faith. Her selflessness and kindness left a deep imprint on all who knew her. She was a beacon of love and faith, and her legacy will continue to live on through the lives of her children, grandchildren, and all those she touched.
It is with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to Brenda Gail Love, yet we do so with the comfort of knowing she is reunited with her beloved husband of 57 years, Fred and son, Freddie Wayne.
Her surviving family includes her son, Michael Love of Hammond, Indiana; her daughter, Ronda Allande (Albert) of Lake Village, Indiana; two grandsons, Stephen Allande (Jennifer) and Adam Allande; two great grandsons, Stephen Allande and Miguel Allande; a sister, Carolyn Sue Vandiver of Owensboro; and two special girls who she considered as her own daughters, Brenda Talley and Cindy Gutierrez.
