Brenda Jo Cooke Scears

Aug 28, 1953 - Feb 18, 2024

location-icon

Fort Smith, AR

Brenda Jo Cooke Scears left for her home with Jesus on Sunday, February 18, 2024. She was born on August 28, 1953 in Winters, Texas to Ernest Cooke and Nita McLeroy. But she’d made Fort Smith, Arkansas her hometown for most of her life. She leaves behind two children, Cody Parker (Elizabeth) of Arizona, and Kelly Solheim (Steve) of Honduras. She is also survived by her beloved little sister, Tracy Allen (Louis) and step-father, Winford Hogan, both of Missouri. She was Nana to four grandchildren and a great-granddaughter (as well as one more great on the way!), whom she adored. And she would be upset if her sweet doggie, Pugsly, were not mentioned. He gave her such happiness in the last months of her life. Her family is heart-broken at this profound loss, but we take comfort in wonderful memories and the knowledge that she is with her Savior. Brenda was known for her crazy antics and her ability to make everyone laugh as she recounted her various pratfalls. She also gave good advice, making her a wise counsel to her friends and family. She was truly a caretaker which was made clear not only by her daily acts of kindness to those around her, but also in her service to her community. During her career at Southwestern Bell (now ATT&T), she volunteered with the Pioneers often, which included visiting elderly at local nursing facilities. She made several of these friends unofficial members of her family over the years. She was also a Girl Scout leader and had many stories of summers spent at the softball and baseball fields of the area cheering on her children in the sun and offering cold drinks from her giant purse to anyone who looked too hot. Brenda was an avid reader all her life. She was never without at least one mystery (or her Kindle with several!) tucked into her purse. Once her children were older, she found time to volunteer at a local public school helping to teach children to read. She briefly volunteered as an adult literacy tutor as well. Brenda attended Calvary Baptist Church for most of her adult life. It was here, in her later years, where she chose to serve with heartfelt passion. She coordinated Samaritan’s Purse activities each holiday season and found particular delight in finding good deals throughout the year to send in the shoeboxes. She also served in various capacities with the Women’s Missionary Union. She was so moved by the homeless in the area around the church that began an outreach ministry with her friends to provide laundry service to those in need. She continued to coordinate Laundry of Love up until the day she left us. But it was in her role as Sunday School teacher where she found the most joy. She made a family of the ladies in her class and she truly loved growing closer to Jesus with them, taking her responsibility as their leader with both gravity and humility. She certainly wasn’t known as a good housekeeper, but over the years many called her house home. Brenda greeted friends, family and complete strangers the same—with a glass of fresh iced tea, yummy treats, a smile and a hug when it was needed. Her legacy and her blessing to all of us are found in learning from this example of unconditional love. A celebration of Brenda’s life will be held on Saturday, February 24 at 11 am at Calvary Baptist Church in Fort Smith. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to the Laundry of Love ministry. Donations can be made to Calvary Baptist Church, 2301 Midland Blvd., Fort Smith, Arkansas 72904. Please clearly designate gifts “Laundry of Love”. To plant Memorial Trees in memory of , please .
