Brenda Lorraine Eastridge Patrick, 57, of Creston, North Carolina, peacefully passed away with family by her side on Thursday, October 21, 2021 at Johnson City Medical Center after a courageous battle against amyloidosis.

Brenda was born on Thursday, December 5, 1963 in Jefferson, North Carolina to the late Vaughn and Millie “Velma” Eastridge.

Brenda will be missed in the Little Laurel community where she resided her whole life. She worked as a seamstress for over 30 years. She enjoyed going to the dirt track with family to watch her brother and nephew race. She was always ready for a trip to the beach and called Topsail Island her “Happy Place.” But most of all, she loved reading the Bible and spending time with her family every chance she could. She greatly missed her husband, mother, father, sister and so many others who passed on before her and is now reunited with them in her new eternal home. Brenda will forever be loved and missed by all her friends and family.

In addition to her parents and grandparents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 35 years, Johnny Wayne Patrick; an infant sister, and sister, Frankie Walsh.
