Brenda waited patiently for the Lord; she turned to the Lord and the Lord heard her cry at 5 a.m., Friday morning, October 20, 2023.

Brenda went early morning into the harvest white, singing a song of gladness and resting in the arms of her heavenly Father. Brenda was born on August 22, 1954, to the late and beloved James Eugene and Alverne Harrison Perry. Brenda was their first-born.

Brenda declared at age 12, during summer revival at Rocky Valley Missionary Baptist Church that she Believes in the birth, life, death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. She has been a life-long member of Rocky Valley Missionary Baptist Church for 57 years. She served dutifully as an Usher, Deaconess, and a Recording Secretary (Sunday School and Bible Study), which brought her much joy.

Brenda was a worker, strong and brave, in the Kingdom of the Lord. Brenda is a graduate of the class of 1972 of Grambling High School. She earned a B.S. Degree in Early Childhood Education from Grambling State University in 1978.

Brenda was married to Arbra Gene Butler. From this union, one son was born, Robert O’Brien Butler. Years later she united in marriage to the late Ray Anderson Robinson. From this union, one son was born, Raymond Eugene Robinson.

Brenda retired from Grambling State University as a Residence Hall Counselor. She spent the Remainder of her years as a housewife, mother, and grandmother. One of her loves was planting flowers.

She especially loved dogwood trees. She would often speak of walking with and talking to God as she worked in her yard. She was known in the community of Perryville as ‘the lady wearing the red cap working in her yard.

Brenda was very supportive of Grambling State University, especially the football team. She would always sport her GSU gear on Fridays. She also enjoyed watching the New Orleans Saints. Brenda loved traveling with the Community Coordinating Council, Incorporated along with her sister Teressa. They fondly call themselves ‘Hustle and Flow’. Teressa is ‘Hustle’ and Brenda was ‘Flow’!

Brenda was loved by many and was affectionately called ‘Bren Bren’ by her sisters whom she loved dearly. She will be deeply missed. Brenda Faye Perry Robinson has answered the Lord’s call. As an assembly of believers, let us listen to God’s call and be ready to say, “Yes, I’ll go with you all the way, Lord”.
