"RODERFIELD — Brenda Kay West, 69, of Roderfield, passed away peacefully in the presence of her husband Ron and the family she loved on Friday, October 8, 2010.

"She was born December 30, 1940 in Williamson, W.Va. and was the daughter of the late Johnnie and Ortha Wagner. She was also preceded in death by a brother, Charles "Chuck" Wagner.

"Brenda was a lifelong Christian and faithfully served the Roderfield United Methodist Church as a Sunday school teacher, a leader, and a compassionate listener and helper to the members of the congregation. She was also an accomplished writer and columnist who retired from the Welch Daily News after 24 years of service. She was a published magazine author, award winning photographer, avid reader, lifelong learner and lover of beauty and nature in all its forms.

"Brenda also had a special love and respect for animals. This includes her faithful cat companions over the years, Tidnon, Missy, Tuffy and Bubby, and the many stray animals who seemed to instinctively know where to go for food and shelter. Brenda particularly enjoyed cooking, and those lucky enough to sample her made-from-scratch specialties could taste the time, attention to detail and pride in every bite. She had a similar gift for gardening, growing (and photographing) beautiful plants, flowers, pumpkins and gourds.

"Brenda loved her family and friends as evidenced by her radiant smile and joyful, boundless giving at holidays, family gatherings, community events and impromptu get togethers in her living room or on the front porch.

"Her greatest love was her husband Ron, with whom she cherished 51 wonderful years.

"In addition to Ron, survivors include sister, Goldie Tessner; brother, Johnny "Bo" Wagner and wife Laura; children, Doug West of Milton, Clark West and wife Donna of Beckley, and Traci West-McCombs and husband Marc McCombs of Charleston; grandchildren, Kristen Ketchum, Aaron West, Janet West, Jennifer Fusco, Christian West, Matthew West, Jarrad West, Lisa Church, Whitney Bonnett and Britney West; and nine great-grandchildren.

"Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m., Tuesday, October 12, 2010 at Fanning Funeral Home Chapel in Welch with Martin West officiating. Burial will follow at Woodlawn Memorial Park in Bluewell, W.Va...."
