Brenda Pinkerton

Obituary of Brenda Kay Pinkerton

Brenda Kay Pinkerton, age 67, passed away June 2, 2020 at Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Alabama. She was Born in Glasgow, kentucky to the late John Henry Jewell and Lucille Ann Gray. Brenda was a happy child and was never too far from her mother growing up. After her mother divorced John Henry, her mother would meet and marry, for the last time, to the late Huston Hazelwood, a man that she would know as "Daddy" for the rest of her life. She was then blessed with three rotten little brothers to "Boss Around" and tease as her birth right of being the oldest child. Brenda would later move south from Kentucky with her family to Auburndale, Florida in 1970, where she would meet the love of her life, Terry Pinkerton. She had two wonderful children; Emily Ann Michelle Pinkerton and Edward Michael Houston Pinkerton. Brenda and Terry were together until his unfortunate passing due to illness.

Brenda is survived by her two loving children; Michael and Emily Kelly (Michelle Pinkerton) and numerous grand children and great grandchildren. She also leaves behind her three rotten little brothers; Larry Wayne Hazelwood of Auburndale, Robert Earl Hazelwood of Nancy, Kentucky, and Richard Allen (Debbie) Hazelwood of Lake Wales.

Brenda was a loving daughter, sister and mother. She was easily fired up and provoked by her brothers and although they will miss her for that, they will reminise and smile when swaping stories about "making Brenda Mad". She will be dearly missed by her children and all her family and friends. She was loved unconditionally by Michael and Emily. She is now reunited with beloved husband, Terry.


We will see you again one day...

—Jojo Moyes


Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping on my cradle bed,
And tears of sweet affection shed?
My Mother...

When pain and sickness made me cry,
Who gazed upon my heavy eye,
And wept for fear that I should die?
My Mother…
