Brenda J. Giovenello – 10/19/2018

October 22nd, 2018

Brenda J. Kincaid Giovenello, 64, of West Grove, formerly of Trainer, passed away on Friday October 19th 2018 surrounded by family.

Brenda graduated from Chichester High School with the class of 1971 and went onto Wilmington College to become a Registered Nurse. Over the course of her 35+ year nursing career, Brenda was employed by Riddle Memorial Hospital, Taylor Hospital and finally retiring from Mercy Fitzgerald hospital in 2018. Brenda developed the best of friends during her career as an RN, some she would consider family. It is by no mistake that Brenda chose the nursing field because of her loving, caring, and compassionate nature as an individual, she was always ready with open arms to help those in need in all walks of life professionally and personally.

Brenda loved to travel and explore and was always looking for the next adventure. She was a lover of all things at the beach, her days on the boat, crabbing, shopping, her girl’s weekends and time spent creating memories and traditions with her family. Brenda was the proudest wife, mom, mother-in-law and “Mommom”, her grandchildren Tyler and Makayla were the loves of her life. Her time spent with them she cherished and loved talking about their achievements and watching their activities and sports throughout the years.

Brenda was predeceased by her parents Vernon and Evelyn Kincaid. She is survived by her husband of 44 years, William Walker Giovenello; daughter Kristin Lynn Schirm (Derek); grandchildren Tyler and Makayla; brother Vernon Scott Kincaid (Cheryl); sister Maryanne Faries.

Friends and family are invited to her viewing that will be held on Saturday, October 27th 2018 from 8:30am-10:15am at St. John Fisher Church 4225 Chichester Ave. Boothwyn, Pa 19061. Her funeral mass will follow at 10:30.  Burial will be private.

    Mom, I miss you terribly. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you! I went to pick up my phone to call you today to only realize you’ll never be on the other end again😞 I’m so sad… the two weeks I spent with you in the hospital we really couldn’t chat because every day you grew weak and all I wanted was for you to rest and get stronger. The days became longer and the more I worried. You tried to tell me things but I could no longer understand. Dad and I are so heartbroken 😭 We miss you and love you, and I think of you every day. I hope you and Jen are having the time of your lives. Until we meet again……❤️😘

    Billy, Kristin and Derek,
    It is so hard to find words at this time to say how sorry we are for the loss of a great Woman, Mother, Grandmother, Friend, and Soul Mate. Brenda was such a great women inside and out. She was there with Jennifer, one of her best friends until the end. Now it’s time for them to be together once again to enjoy the peace that they both so well deserve and all that heaven can give. Always a place in our hearts forever. GOD BLESS XO

    So very sorry to hear of Brenda’s passing. She was a wonderful coworker at Taylor, always a smile. Always think of her on Kentucky Derby day — what a wonderful trip with her family. Thoughts and prayers to her entire family. Rest well, Brenda!

    Bill and Kristen, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I have many fond memories of Brenda and will always remember the fun times at Taylor Hospital. I was just speaking of her the other day regarding the flu shots. Every year your Mom would have to hunt me down to give me the flu shot, I hated to get it and I was always the last one to get in. We had a great group of people in our department and always had fun. May you find comfort knowing Brenda is at peace resting with the Lord watching over her family, who she adored. My thoughts ad prayers are with you during this difficult time.
