Brenda Hope Broome Miller, a native of Transylvania County, peacefully went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, May 31, 2017, at the age of 77.

She is remembered and loved by her family: son David Elton Parker and wife, Rita; son Glen William Parker and wife, Patti; son Dennis Mark Parker and wife, Chris; daughter Sharon Elaine Howard and husband, Scott; granddaughters Alyse Sheppard, Alicia Braunschweiger, Jerrica Sanders, Jade Parker and Teal Parker; grandsons Aaron Parker, Alex Parker and Jordan Snipes; brothers Gary Miller, Kenneth Miller and wife, Peggy; nephews Kevin Miller, Jason Miller and Jeremy Miller. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren fondly knew her as "Grandma Hope."

She was born on Nov. 15, 1939, to her loving parents, the late Floyd Kenneth Miller and Willa Rae Miller. She was a very caring daughter who loved spending time with her parents on holidays, weekends and family gatherings. She was a dedicated single mother who sacrificed much and always put her children first. She set a great example and laid a solid foundation for her family to build upon.

Her passion was reading books. She enjoyed going to downtown Brevard to visit the library, shop at the thrift stores and having her hair done at the salon. Friends and family loved her conversations, sense of humor, laughter, and her care and compassion for others.

A memorial service and graveside service were held at Oak Grove Baptist Church on Friday, June 2, 2017. Rev. Allen Murray of Oak Grove Baptist Church and (Brother) Greg Johnson, of Mid Way Baptist Church conducted the service. Her family would like to thank all the friends and family members that attended the services, Rev. Murray for all of the prayers and generosity, and Greg Johnson for preaching and bringing comfort to all with his words of hope and virtue. Her family appreciates the music by Helen and Selena Hoxit and the food provided after the service by Diane Cox, Jason Aykroyd, Toni Gant and Zion Baptist Church.

Her family would also like to thank the staff at The Oaks of Brevard and the members of hospice for their care. Her family would also like to thank Moody-Connolly Funeral Home for taking care of the arrangements.

She was our "Hope" and always will be.
