Brenda M. Ericson
1938 ∼ 2021
Brenda M. Ericson passed away at the age of 82 due to complications from Covid. She was the daughter of the late Mary (Barbato) Holmes, sister of the late Russell Holmes, and the wife of the late Kenneth Ericson. She is survived by her daughters Jill E. Jones and Joyce A. Ericson, her beloved grandchildren Zachary, Summer, and Dylan Jones, and her niece and nephew Carrie and Cory Holmes.
She was a 1956 graduate of Stoughton High School. She worked for many years at Dun and Bradstreet before becoming an Executive Planner at the Foxboro Company until her retirement.
Brenda made everyone who met her feel special. She was “Nana” to everyone lucky enough to know her. Not only was she incredibly intelligent, but she was so genuinely fascinated by all topics. She loved to talk to anyone about anything- history, science, sports, and anything in between. If it was a topic she didn’t know much about it, you could guarantee she would have read a few books on it and know more than you by the next time you saw her. She was constantly reading and had an immense love for learning- so much so that the librarian delivered stacks of nonfiction books to her weekly. She loved watching (and dominating) Jeopardy with her family. She was happiest with family and their cat Bolt. She was so caring, selfless, funny, thoughtful, and strong. She was truly one of a kind and will be dearly missed.
