Obituary for Brenda Louise Baskett

December 13, 1945 - January 24, 2021
Owensboro, Kentucky | Age 75


Brenda Louise Baskett, 75, of Owensboro, passed away Sunday, January 24 at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. She was born in Ohio County, Kentucky to the late Charles and Claris Decker Williams.

Brenda was a loving and dedicated homemaker who was of the Catholic faith. She enjoyed karaoke parties and great times with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She also loved her many friends at the Roosevelt House where many lively card and bingo games were played together over her twenty plus years as a resident. Brenda always wanted to look her best when going out. One of her favorite stops was Texas Roadhouse where her standard choices were the "Road Kill" and margaritas. She also enjoyed eating sweets, reading about the Amish, watching westerns and Lifetime Christmas movies. (All year long!) Brenda will be dearly missed.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Irvin Boling; her second husband, Glenn Baskett; a sister, Carolyn Farris; and brothers, Bobby and Charles Williams.

Brenda is survived by daughters, Brenda "Cammy" Whitefeather (Ron) of Tell City, IN and Robin Michelle O'Harrow (Ron) of Auburn, CA; sons, Irvin Reid Boling (Debbie) of Sacramento, David Brent Boling (Ruth Ann), both of Owensboro, and Charles Jason Boling (Christina) of Princeton, IN; fifteen grandchildren; seventeen great-grandchildren; sisters, Sharon Rodgers of Bowling Green, KY and Loretta Alexander of Hendersonville, TN; and several nieces and nephews.
