MURFREESBORO, NC – Brenda Ann Ulisse Sturgeon, age 63, of Broad Street, passed away suddenly on July 4, 2019 at her residence.
Brenda was born on April 3, 1956 to Lyle Sturgeon and Norma Justice Sturgeon in Hampton, VA. She was a very grateful person and loved her family dearly, especially her furbabies. Brenda loved nature, rainbows, traveling, and spending time with her family. She enjoyed dancing in the rain, saying that the rain hitting her face was angel kisses. In Brenda’s favorite words, “I’m as crazy as I want to be,” meant she could do whatever she wanted to do in life even if others thought it was crazy.
Besides her parents, Brenda was preceded in death by her husband, Gene Ulisse, whom she loved and missed dearly.
Brenda is survived by her only daughter, Melinda Sturgeon and significant other Randy Jarrell of Newport News, VA; sister, Vickie Riney and husband Michael of Palm Harbor, FL; two brothers, Dean Sturgeon of Ozona, FL, and Christopher Calaway and wife Tammy of Jacksonville, FL; nieces, Amber and Katie; nephews, Jacob and Karson; her beloved cat, Baby Girl and her two precious fur grandbabies, Jilli and Jackson Ray, along with a special aunt, cousins and friends.
The family will have a celebration of Brenda’s life at a later date.
