Brenda Maye Kersee-Maull was born January 15, 1952 in Memphis, Tennessee. She was the daughter of John Henry Kersee and Dimple Celeste (Slayden) Kersee.
Brenda was educated in the Chicago Public School system and graduated from Wendell Phillips High School. Realizing the importance of education, went on to graduate from Chicago State University. She used her education to become a teacher in the Chicago Public Schools.
After Brenda’s retirement, on a trip through Des Moines she decided to stay. She liked the quiet and slower pace.
In her spare time Brenda liked to garden, do arts and crafts, listen to gospel and country music. She was an excellent cook and her soul food dinners were the bomb!
Brenda transitioned from time to eternity with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 11, 2017.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Jesse Maull; her parents, John and Dimple; her sister, Regina Kersee–Tibbs and her nephew Larry Kersee, Jr and niece Nyesha Kersee.
Left to cherish her memory are her children Denene Kersee-Lawyer and India Blakely (Michael Blakely) and her siblings, Celest Morris, Henry Kersee, Larry Kersee, Keith Kersee and Nadine Roberson (Carman Roberson) and her granddaughter Quiara Lawyer.
