June 26, 1933 - August 29, 2021
Sarah Virginia Leopard Brendle, 88, went on to Glory on August 29, 2021. A native of Jackson County, NC, she was born on June 26 , 1933, to Lambert and Allie Bryson Leopard. Her family moved to Macon County when she was just a child. A member of Watauga Baptist Church, Virginia was known in her community as one who not only loved the Lord but also showed her devotion by working for Him throughout her entire life. Since secular television programs did not interest her, she spent her spare time reading the Bible. Second to her love for the Lord was her love for her family, especially her husband, John, and her daughter, June. She was a hard worker who always looked for ways to help and make life easier for them. She delighted in both her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They were truly the loves of her life. Virginia is survived by her daughter, June Cassada (Rick); her grandchildren, Ashley (Scott), Megan, and Luke; her great-grandchildren, Alexis, Victoria, Blake, Rylee, Lillian, Carley, and Ethan; and her sisters, Marie Tilson (Wayne), Eula Carnes (Charles), Hilda Evitt (Harley), Edith Childers, and Nancy Picklesimer, and a brother, Francis Leopard (Phyllis). She was predeceased by her parents; her husband, John Robert Brendle; and a brother, Harrison Leopard. The family would like to thank the staff in the Memory Care Unit at Macon Valley Nursing Center for their loving and exceptional care, especially Kim Henry. A Celebration of Life will be held at Watauga Baptist Church on October 2, at 2:00 p.m. Celebrants will be Rev. Wesley Price and Rev. John Hartley. The family requests attendees follow mask and social distancing recommendations. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Watauga Baptist Church Cemetery Fund, P.O.Box 2022, Franklin, NC, 28744. Moffitt Family Funeral Care is honored to serve Mrs. Brendle's family.
