WORCESTER-Brenda Lee Adkins, 49, died unexpectedly Tuesday, June 9, 2020. She was born in Worcester, daughter of James E. and Ruth A.L. (Cote) Adkins. Brenda worked as a unit secretary at UMass Memorial Medical Center for many years.
Brenda was always the life of the party even if it was a child's birthday party. She loved all her nieces and nephews deeply, and loved spending time with her friends, the beach, and coloring and drawing with anyone who was willing. She had an infectious laugh that you could hear anywhere. She loved going to close friends Joe and Bonnie's for holidays, lobster fests, and for anything Italian! She will be sadly missed by her family and friends.
Brenda was predeceased by her beloved life partner of 20 years, James W. Todd on November 13, 2018. She is survived by eight siblings; Tammy King, Clara Doran, Cindy Adkins-Terry, Tina Hatstat, Robert Adkins, Jimmy Adkins, Barbara Long and Judy Adkins and many nephews and nieces. Her sister Donna predeceased her.
Visiting Hours to celebrate Brenda's life will be held at Callahan, Fay & Caswell Life Celebraton Home, 61 Myrtle Street on Monday, July 27th from 4:00-6:00 pm immediately followed by a service.
