Brenda Crosby-Hodges Obituary; Sadly, An Illinois Resident Of Chicago Has Passed Away.

It is impossible to fully express the pain that comes with losing a loved one, therefore it is with the utmost regret that I must break the heartbreaking news of my mother’s passing. The matriarch of our family, Brenda Crosby-Hodges, bravely fought congestive heart disease for eight years until succumbing to the condition at 9:30 this morning.

She was our family’s pillar of strength. Her leaving has left a hole in our lives that will never be able to be filled. This gap cannot be replaced. Brenda wasn’t simply a mother; she was also a tower of strength, a source of everlasting love, and a stream of wisdom for her children. All of us who had the honor of knowing her were comforted by her contagious smile, loving embraces, and reassuring presence. She had an infectious laugh.

She handled her illness with grace and an uncompromising spirit, making her the model of fortitude, bravery, and grace. This loss has generated pain that is almost terrible, and the void it has left behind seems insurmountable. We kindly ask that you remember us and pray for us as we navigate through this trying time.

Although the pain is unbearable, we can find some solace in the knowledge that she is no longer in pain. We will always be grateful for the opportunity we had to spend time with her, even if our hearts are crushed, and we will always remember her with love and admiration.
