Brenda Lee Haug

Brenda Lee Haug, 74, of Chicora, went to be with the Lord Tuesday morning August 1, 2023, in the comfort of her home while surrounded by her loving husband and family.

Brenda was born in Butler on June 30, 1949. She was the daughter of the late Arnold H. and Mary Idella Berry Freiters.

Brenda was loving, kind, and caring. She truly enjoyed a good time and welcomed people into her home and her heart. She was proud of her children and grandchildren. Her husband was the love of her life and they did everything together.

Brenda was well known among family and friends for her passion for yard sales, thrift stores, and finding a bargain where ever she could. She enjoyed flower gardening and working outside around her home. Brenda had also been a member of the Red Hats Society.

Brenda was an avid horse lover; in her earlier years, she won many awards and ribbons at equestrian competitions. She and her husband enjoyed their winter home in Brooksville, FL, where many friendships were made.
