Brenda Jo Grandon | Obituary


Brenda Jo Grandon, 63, of Paola, KS, died unexpectedly on February 15, 2022 in Fort Scott, Kansas.

Brenda was born on September 27, 1958 to Don and Phyllis Grandon. She spent her early years in Paola until her family moved to Overland Park where she attended school and graduated from Shawnee Mission Northwest High School.

Brenda had an early career in modeling and in her spare time she could always be found at Bar V Stables riding. She spent several years managing an Arabian horse farm and training horses. She got the opportunity for a free flight to Houston so Brenda and her best friend Kathi hopped on a plane and decided to stay in Texas. She worked as a production manager at Vietta China Company, then for 10 years as a driver for Federal Express.

Brenda was a very loving and compassionate person and especially adored her beloved cat Wasay and her horse Micah who made her dream of owning a mustang come true. She spent many hours with Micah and looked forward to when Micah would be old enough to be ridden.

Brenda was predeceased by her father Don Grandon, her grandparents Roy and Ruby Grandon and Earl and Wynona Hink. She is survived by her companion of recent years Randy Rogers of Fort Scott, Kansas; his mother and stepfather Phyllis and Ron Hollinger of Paola; brothers Greg (Sherry) Grandon of Edgerton, Brad (Kim) Grandon and Chris Grandon of Paola; half-sister Ann (Jim) Shull of Nampa, Idaho; Paola’s half-brother Steve (Cindy) Hollinger; several nieces, nephews and other relatives.

Brenda will be sadly missed by her family and many friends. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions to Lighthouse Presbyterian Church or Living Proof Church.

Visitation will be at 10:00 a.m., Friday, March 4, 2022, followed by a memorial service at 11:00 a.m. at Dengel & Son Mortuary-Crematory, 305 N. Pearl St., Paola, KS, 66071. Interment will be held at the cemetery by Paula.
