Brenda Lynn Herman Buie, 65, of Rocky Point, passed away Thursday, May 26, 2016, at Lower Cape Fear Hospice Care Center. Born October 6, 1950, in New York City, N.Y., she was a daughter of the late Abe and Sophie Herman.
In addition to her parents, she is also predeceased by her brother, Howard Herman.
She is survived by her husband of 30 years, James P. Buie; nephew, Jason Herman; nieces, Amanda Herman and Elizabeth Herman; sister-in-law, Veronica Herman; lifelong friend, Mary Bates; and extended family members.
Brenda was proud to be a native New Yorker. She was equally as proud to be an adopted North Carolinian. Her disposition was N.C. with an edge from her native NYC. Brenda was an accomplished business professional, but what made her special was her genuine interest in and concern for people. When you spoke to Brenda and she asked, ‘How are you doing?,’ you knew she was sincerely interested in how you were doing. A genuine, caring person.
A celebration of life was held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 1, at Winter Park Presbyterian Church.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Brenda’s name to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, 1500 Rosecrans Ave., Suite 200, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266.
