Brenda Kay Souders

January 15, 1950 — December 17, 2023

 

Brenda Kay Souders 73, of Damascus Maryland, passed away December 17, 2023, in Martinsburg, WV where she lived with her loving husband James “Jim” Souders of 26 years.  

Brenda was born to the late Orvil & Alice Magers on January 15, 1950, in Damascus, MD.  She grew up with her loving sister Marilyn in Damascus where Brenda was a beauty queen as a former Miss Damascus.  Brenda attended Damascus High School where she completed the cosmetology program.  After beginning her career as a hair stylist at the Jo Lyne Hair Salon in Damascus, Brenda went on to open her own salon, Bren-Lar Hair Care, in Poolesville, MD.  Brenda owned and operated her salon for more than 30 years where she made many lifelong special friends.  

In addition to styling hair, Brenda was a true artist, decorating cakes and creating beautiful flower arrangements.  Brenda helped to bring the visions of many brides to life with exquisite wedding cakes and flower bouquets.  In addition to weddings Brenda also created many fun, and sometimes a bit risqué, birthday cakes.  No matter the occasion Brenda provided the smiles.

Brenda is survived by her loving husband James Eugene Souders, daughter Sherry Minnick and husband Mark, son Keith Hubble and wife Risa, and grandchild Ashley Minnick.  In addition, she is survived by her sister Marilyn Shifflett.
