Brenda White

Brenda Semff White, 64, of Cleburne, Texas, passed away on March 16, 2022 with her family friends by her side.

Brenda was the only child born to the late Melvin and Freda Semff, June 22, 1957, in Cleburne, Texas, Johnson County. She graduated from Cleburne High School in 1975 and The University of North Texas in 1979 with a BA in Business with Art Minor.

Brenda lived in Cleburne her whole life. She was a loving and dedicated mother to Mandi and Taylor. Brenda treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She enjoyed sharing her love of the arts with them and so many others were on the receiving end of her creativity through cards and photographs. Brenda was always welcoming; she made people around her feel extra special. Brenda was the best friend and listener. She would spend long nights talking to friends and helping them. She instilled strong core values of kindness, compassion, honesty, integrity, and respect for others.

Children in the Cleburne Independent School District were on the receiving end of her kindness and creativity as she served as a respected teaching assistant for over 20 years.

Brenda was an active member of the Wesley Methodist Church for over 60 years. The church was a very special place, near and dear to her heart especially activities with the United Methodist Women. The Cleburne community benefited from Brenda being a long-time member of Save Old Cleburne and where she actively participated in Candlewalk for a number of years.

Brenda is preceded in death by her father, Melvin Semff, and mother, Freda Semff. She is survived by her daughter, Mandi White of Ft. Worth, Texas, and son Taylor White of Cleburne, Texas and so many friends who will miss her dearly.
