Brenda Woodell

April 16, 1951 — August 24, 2022


Brenda Lou Conley Woodell, 71, of Hendersonville passed away on Wednesday, August 24, 2022.  A native of Ohio, she was a daughter of the late Everett Conley and Mildred Jordan Conley.  In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her husband, Warren “Woody” Woodell in 2013; a sister, Pamela Conley and a brother, Michael Conley.

She is survived by her son, Jacob Woodell and his wife, Angele of Candler; one grandson, Oliver Woodell; three sisters, Sandra Creel of Hendersonville, Karen Louder and Sharon Underwood both of California; and one brother, Brett Conley of Ohio.
