Our beloved, Constance Darlene Coleman, affectionately known as Brenda was born to Vera Constance Jackson and the late Douglas Eddie Jackson on March 28, 1951 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She departed this life on January 9, 2024 to be with her Heavenly Father.

Brenda accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and joined St. John’s AME at an early age. Brenda was educated in Philadelphia City Public Schools. Upon moving to Virginia in 1987, she joined Mangohick Baptist Church of Hanover, VA and was ordained as deaconess in April of 2007. Serving her church was one of her many passions.

Brenda was a woman of many trades. She worked in the textile industry for many years, specifically at Levis Jeans factory, the IRS, Hanover Community Services Board, and for many of her years, was a direct support professional caretaker for people with intellectual disabilities whom she treated like family.

Brenda was a caring person and was always willing to lend a helping hand to others. She was loved by many and was a family oriented person. Brenda liked to attend family gatherings, travel, listen to music, and cook.
