Brenda Ellen (Apple) Reasen

Oct. 13, 1954 – Oct. 14, 2021

Brenda Ellen (Apple) Reasen was a caring wife, mother, grammy, and friend. She entered the presence of her Lord and Savior on Oct. 14, 2021, after a month-long battle with COVID.

She was born to Joyce and Sally Apple (Pearson) on Oct. 13, 1954, in Marion.

Mrs. Reasen graduated from Marion High School where she was a member of the Honor Society and was the first chair, second string for violin in the school orchestra. She worked in a floral shop where her love of crafts began. She met Rod Reasen on a blind date. They were married in February 1974. They enjoyed 47 wonderful years together. Mr. and Mrs. Reasen have two children, Rod II and Ryon.

She worked for Avon for most of her adult career where she earned many honors and awards. After retiring, she received her Master Gardener’s certification, where she earned the “Gold Level” Advanced Master Gardener award from Purdue University as well as multiple HCMGA Growth Awards. Her other passion was her grandchildren where she earned the much loved “Grammy” designation. She was Grammy to Grace, Abbie, Emma, Ava, Luke and Asa Reasen. Brenda hosted “Grammy Camp” for her grandchildren every year for 14 years.

She was a true soul-winner for the Lord. You didn’t have to know her long before you knew she loved God and couldn’t wait to share Him with you. The love for her Lord was evident in her everyday conversations. She will be missed greatly by all who knew her.
