Brenda Poole Obituary

Ms. Brenda Joyce Leach Poole departed her worldly home to be with our father and savior Jesus Christ on Saturday April 8th, 2023. She loved her only two sons, Brandon and Yamir, as well as the kind staff at The Oaks at Sweeten Creek. She filled the halls with her trademark laughter and witty sharp humor.  Brenda bought joy to everyone she touched. Her favorite color was burgundy and she loved her trademark meal of fried chicken.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sisters Frances J. Hopkins, Valeria J. Flamer, and Carolyn J. Pratt, and brother Arthur Jemerson, Jr.

Brenda is survived by her two sons Brandon Poole and Yamir Bryant (Doreen), loving sisters Alma J. Wigfall of Waldorf, MD, Susie Jemerson of Suitland, MD, and Linda J. Vincent (Reginald) of Salisbury, NC, extended sisters Sharee Anderson of Upper Marlboro, MD, Jacqueline J. Johnson of Forestville, MD, and Tonya J. Wright (Gerald) of Maryland, and brother Alfonzo Leach (Freida) of North Wilkesboro, NC, extended brothers Michael Anderson of Alabama, Steve McClam of Suitland, MD, and Dennis Jemerson of Washington, DC, and super special and loving niece Angelic J. Bal (Malick) of Charlotte, NC.

Warmest of thank you's to Barbara, Michelle, and the staff at the Oaks at Sweeten Creek.
