Brenda Bowling Hall, 81, of Colonial Heights passed away on Saturday, September 18, 2021. Born March 14,1940, in Petersburg, VA, she was the daughter of the late Edward W. and Gladys H. Bowling, and was also preceded in death by her son, Richard Hall; brother, David Bowling; two brothers-in-law, Alvin "Hunka" Hall and Wally Waldron; sister-in-law, Irma Cross; and two nephews, Scott Cross and Jason Bell.
Brenda graduated from Petersburg High School in 1958. She continued to be a part of the Petersburg Graduating Class of 1958 Reunion Committee until her passing. She worked for decades as the Director of the South Side Sheltered Workshop where she assisted and cared for mentally and physically handicapped adults. After retiring, she became an aide for Mandy Hiott, who has cerebral palsy. Brenda was by Mandy's side through her senior year in Colonial Heights High School and two years at Richard Bland College. Then Brenda took time to care for her parents, her son, her husband, and everyone else that she encountered. She was truly a wonderful caregiver all of her life, finding great joy caring for others. Brenda had a deep love for her family and friends. We are grateful to have had her in our lives.
