Brenda Ann Smith

“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Brenda Ann Smith, affectionately known as “Potna” by her family and friends, was born on June 29, 1960 to the union of August & Everda Simon in St. James, Louisiana. Brenda accepted Christ at a very young age and was baptized at St. Mark Baptist Church in Labadieville, La. It was in the latter years of her life that Brenda became a born believer. Filled with the Holy Spirit, Brenda recommitted her life to Christ and transitioned with a sincere love for the Lord, our God.

A graduate of St. James High School, Brenda went on to enjoy a long, prosperous career in the Oil & Gas field. It was through her passion, joy and enthusiasm for the industry that she met a multitude of people who would ultimately become dear friends and extended family to her. As difficult and demanding as work could be, Brenda was known to be that of an encourager. In her, you were sure to get a good laugh and a strong word of support.
Brenda thoroughly enjoyed shopping; dining out and dancing to music with her loved ones. Brenda will be remembered fondly by her nieces, who when they were young girls, she paid to scratch her scalp and give extremely long foot massages.

Brenda is survived by her three sons, Joseph Smith III (Paula), Joval Maurice Smith, B.J. Joel Smith, five grandkids, Joseph, Jazel, Dontrell, Jayla and Jarvis, five great-grandchildren and a host of nieces & nephews, cousins, in-laws and friends. Brenda departed this earthly life into eternal glory on October 11, 2019. Brenda leaves to cherish her precious memories ex husband, Joseph Smith II, five sisters, Jacqueline, Zena, Gloria, Rose and Samantha as well as her brothers, Lester (Andrea) and Clifton all of St. James, La.

Brenda was preceded in death by her parents, August & Everda, sisters Linda, Alice, Gail & Danielle, her brother Stonewall and nephew DeVante’.

All neighboring communities and churches are invited to join the family for a Celebration of Life at Mt Bethel Baptist Church, 6234 Burton Street, St. James, LA 70086 on Saturday October 19, 2019 at 10 am, Rev.
