Brenda Joy Alyea, 69, of Branson, Mo., passed away Sept. 3, 2018.
She entered this world Sept. 25, 1948, in Canonsburg, Pa., the daughter of Raymond and Doris (Arbuckle) McCormick.
Her parents and husband, Mark Alyea, preceded her in death.
Brenda earned a degree in music and played flute and clarinet yet her main instrument was the piano. She listened to classic rock with a passion for the Beatles. Brenda loved playing golf and watching Mountaineer football. She also collected many elephant figurines, only with the trunk up for good luck. Her passing will leave an empty place in many hearts and lives.
Brenda is survived by her daughter, Jaime Tyson, of Springfield, Mo.; son, Scott (Lauren) Stupar, of Morgantown; and grandsons, Tyler Tyson and Jacob Stupar.
Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.
A family gathering will be planned for a later time.
