Brenda Thornburg Bunn, 80, of Mt. Pleasant passed away Saturday, July 18, 2020, at Atrium Health-Cabarrus after a short period of declining health. A graveside service celebrating her life will begin at 3 p.m. Tuesday, July 21, 2020, at the St. James Reformed Church Cemetery on Walnut Street, Mt. Pleasant, with the Rev. Todd Davis officiating.

Thornburg and Blandine Staton Thornburg. She and her husband of 59 years, John, moved from their native Charlotte to Mt. Pleasant in the mid-1960s. There they settled a farmstead northeast of town and both worked the land, its forests and fields. Brenda also provided office assistance for John’s plumbing business and their rental properties. Brenda was member of St. James Reformed Church, where she was active in the Women’s Circle activities, particularly their annual fall bazaar. In her leisure time, Brenda enjoyed flower gardening, various handcrafts particularly spinning wool and knitting, as well as needlepoint. Earlier in her life, she was a collector of tiny saucers that leading fine china manufacturers once made as promotional items. Throughout her life, Brenda had a special affection for dogs and nearly always had at least one as a companion. Left to cherish her memory and grieve her loss is her husband, John T. Bunn, of the home, and her current four-legged friend, Bailey. Memorials may be directed to St. James Reformed Church, P.O. Box 447, Mt. Pleasant, NC 28124.
