On the morning of March 18, 2009, the Lord took Brenda's hand and led her to her heavenly home to join her loving husband, Jim McElrath, her parents, Leo and Pearl Ivy, and her grandparents, PaPa and Maw Goree.

Brenda was born April 24, 1943 in Stamford, Texas to Leo and Pearl Ivy. Brenda's greatest blessings were her family, friends, and her dog, Sassie. She was a very loving and generous person who will be missed greatly.
Brenda is survived by her daughter, Kim Haramut and husband Mike of Georgia, grand-daughter Heather Jiske and husband Jason of Georgia, grandson Jason Haramut of Georgia; brother Kenneth Ivy and wife, Betty of Aubrey Texas, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. She also left behind her extended family, Anna Dell Farr and Husband Henry Rodriguez, Margie Cornelius, Marilyn Smith, and a host of friends.
Brenda's greatest desire was for everyone to know how much joy, happiness, and love that each of you brought into her life and how much she loved you all.
