Brenda Sample

July 6, 1951 — June 13, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Brenda "Gayle" Sample on June 13, 2024. A woman of outgoing, compassionate, and caring nature, Gayle lived a fulfilling life characterized by kindness and love.

Gayle is survived by her daughter, Jaime Fulford, son-in-law, Jim Fulford, and her grandchildren; Brandon, Harlee, and Carter Fulford. Their grandmother had always been incredibly proud of them, and they were undoubtedly the joy of her life. She is also survived by her brother, Lamar Lamb, who always looked out for her and took care of her in her final days. Gayle has nephews, cousins, and other family members that she loved very much.

She is predeceased by her mother, Elizabeth "Betty" Bass, her husband, Jonathan "Barry" Sample, and her sister-in-law, Rebecca "Becky" Lamb.

Gayle was born on July 6, 1951, in Chickamauga, GA and graduated from Rossville High School in 1969. She later attended dental hygienist school in New York. In 1980, Gayle entered into motherhood, a role she cherished deeply. She worked for several years at Ryder Truck Rental in Orlando, as well as working in an OB/GYN office in Orlando. Her work journey led her to TIC - The Industrial Company in 1999. She traveled the US with them working in the warehouse and making many amazing friends while doing so. She met her best friends, Judy and Danny Mishoe, while working in SC. Gayle and Judy became like two peas in a pod. She also made another cherished friend while working for TIC, Pam Doucette.

Away from work, Gayle found pleasure in the simple things in life. She was an ardent fan of HGTV and loved spending her leisure time fishing, caring for her dogs, and talking about her grandbabies. Brenda lived by a simple mantra; "Help everyone, no matter what the situation". These were not just words to her but a principle she incorporated into her daily life.

Gayle's legacy is in the life she lived and the love she radiated. Her greatest accomplishment was her family, which she adored immensely. She will always be remembered for the life lessons she imparted, and her memory will live on in the hearts of those she touched.

We honor Gayle's life and her endless love for her family. She will be missed profoundly by friends, family, and all who knew her.
