Brenda Sims Roberts of Damon, Texas passed away at home on October 28, 2017, after a courageous battle with cancer. Brenda was born December 10, 1951 in West Columbia, Texas. After attending schools in Long Point and Needville, she graduated from Columbia High School and the University of Texas at Austin.
