Brenda Louise Craig, who worked at UNCG in security, died in July.
She was a UNCG alumna who earned a degree in physical education and excelled in sports and academically.
After graduating, Brenda became a teacher and instructor. She returned to UNCG to work in security. Her interest in law enforcement also led her to security positions at N.C. A&T State University and Wake Forest University.
Craig was well known among students, faculty, and staff at UNCG, where she volunteered daily at the Smith Campus Ministries Center and with Wesley-Luther at the Spartan Open Pantry. A generation of students came to know and appreciate Brenda for the way she listened to them, helped them, and encouraged them.
A celebration of life will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 25, at College Place United Methodist Church, 509 Tate St. Memorials may be made to the Spartan Athletics Scholarship Fund or the Spartan Open Pantry.
